Kingsley Okonkwo, a singer better known as Kcee, has said it is possible to have a “big song” and not make any money from it.
Kcee said some people in the Nigerian music industry have “big songs just for the song”.
He said this when asked about the progress of the artistes signed to Five Star Music, the record label he co-owns with his brother Emeka Okonkwo, who’s better known as E-Money.
“They are doing their best and they are doing what they can and we are also doing our best. God has plans for everybody, I think they are doing well,” Kcee told Hip TV.
“Even some people with big songs don’t even make any money. Some people have big song just for the song. We are not regretting and we are not complaining.”
Kcee, who recently parted ways with wantaway former signee/collaborator Harrysong, says the experience will not deter him from supporting upcoming artistes.
“I will never stop because it is part of me. I am going to be supporting up and coming artistes. We are going to use a lot of approach[es],” he said.
“A lot of artistes get it twisted when you try to support them from scratch. They don’t understand the helping hand, some of them take it for granted. I know God is still going to give me the strength and resources to keep doing.”
Kcee released his new album ‘Attention to Detail’ in September.
