BY ROTIMI AGBANA
For kicking off his December 19 music concert tagged ‘Wizkid VIP Experience Concert’ hours after the scheduled time, the Executive Secretary, Lagos State Employmen sust Fund, Akin Oyebode, has described pop star, Wizkid, as an undisciplined artiste.
According to Oyebode who made the statement in a series of tweets while recounting his rather annoying experience after the much anticipated concert, though the Ojuelegba hit maker probably has everything possible to be rated Africa’s best musician, he lacks a very significant human attributes discipline.
“Wizkid probably has everything to be the best performer on the continent, except discipline. Talent is effortlessly obvious, but the extra 5% perspiration gives you is still missing. But Wiz brings amazing energy and has incredible stage presence; plus there’s something about the boy that makes people lose their home training at his concerts”, he said.
Speaking further, he advised entertainers to quit the habit of commencing their shows way behind schedule.
“This thing where a 7pm concert starts the following day needs to die. Basket Mouth told all the jokes he knew; he and Dotun probably spent more time on stage than the headliner.”
However, he added that henceforth, he may attend only Adekunle Gold and Teni’s music shows because they are probably the only singers who keep to time and also make use of live bands unlike other A’list artistes who use DJs.
“Henceforth, Adekunle Gold and Teni, only. Also, there’s no need to have a band if you’re going to use DJ Tunez all night. It’s just a reminder that you probably didn’t make rehearsals. Unless it’s Adekunle Gold, it’s best to show up 4-hours after the advertised time”, he concluded.Source:
