Crown Uzama, the Nigerian singer better known as Shallipopi, has spoken about the “immense wealth” in the music industry.
In a recent interview with Pop Central TV, the music star said the “bountiful wealth” in the music industry can not be understood.
The singer also likened the money earned through music to the one made from rituals — commonly referred to as “blood money”.
He added that even if he were to stop making music, the songs he has already released would continue to generate income.
“You will never understand music money, music money is like ritual. There is too much money in music that you can never understand at all. Even me I did not even know that this particular thing e reach like this o,” he said.
“Even if you are a artiste that just come out one month, provided your song is just big, do not worry. The money just dey the music.
“So for me now, I no dey balance anything because I no that music will not stop even if I stop singing, my music that I have dropped, will continue to giving me money.”
He also said he does not hesitate to help his family members and friends, no matter how much it costs.
“My friends and family, I no dey sly them. If I get chance to… I no care how much,” he said.
Shallipopi rose to fame after releasing his first single titled ‘Elon Musk’.
On October 17, Shallipopi launched Plutomania Records, his record label. He also signed Tega Boi and Zerrydl on the same day.
