Gifty Powers, ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, has slammed Nigerian artistes for lacking originality and for not infusing local dialects into their songs.
The actress said it is rare to see a Ghanaian artiste “speak other people’s dialects” and criticised Nigerian artistes who always rely on “Ghana tune” to make hit records.
Powers made this known in a Snapchat post on Tuesday.
She praised Adekunle Gold, Olamide, Flavour and Phyno for sticking to the culture.
“It is a shame that some musicians in Nigeria are not proud of our dialects, (Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, and Pidgin).
“Every song we hear now must have a Ghana tune…why?
“It is not supposed to be so na, haba.
“I must confess that I am very proud of Flavour, Olamide and Phyno. Twale to these musicians.
“I know some people will blast at me for writing this, but mhen, I don’t freaking care. Truth must be told.
“You will never see a Ghanaian learning to speak other people dialects, PS: who tell you say your music no go sell without Ghana tune in it?
“Be proud of where you from, one love Nigeria,” she wrote.
The ex-reality show contestant also took to Instagram to commend Adekunle Gold for infusing the Yoruba dialect into his music.
Gifty Powers was the fourth housemate to be evicted from the reality show.
