Watching Afrobeats Documentary On Netflix Got Me Heartbroken For Blackface


Sometimes I’ll just sit down and be very angry.

And I’ll ask myself, “why am I angry?”

It is Blackface.

Blackface is the reason I am angry.

Why didn’t he let go of that African Queen song?

Why was he so obsessed with it?

Why was he also obsessed with d3stroying Tuface when the latter refused to acknowledge his claims of being the original owner of the song.

Why did he let that tussle for ownership of one song ruin his career?

Why?

He was such a talent.

Yes, Blackface was a talent.

I loved that indigenous feel to his songs.

Why did he let African Queen become the mountain he would lay his entire career on?

Why was he so fixated on it, on Tuface?

That song wasn’t even that good.

Yes, yes, I know the whole world loved it, but I hated that song with all my heart. Hated the video even more.

WHY DIDN’T BLACKFACE LET IT GO!!!

Yes, he claimed it was his song.

I get it.

But if you lose one song… write another one.

If you lose one f.i.g.h.t… live to f.i.g.h.t another day.

Get over it and allow yourself move on to greater things.
.

Bitterness grows.

One year. Two years. Seven years. Fifteen years.

You look back and you KNOW you watched life pass you by while you plot revenge.

Revenge is of the Lord, homie.
And He knows how to serve it cold.

Just be strategic with your life and leave the rest.

E pain me sha.

I’m watching Afrobeats documentary on Netflix and I am just heartbroken for some of these artistes.

Watch it. It is a fantastic piece of work by Ayo Shonaiya.

The best thing I have seen on Netflix in a while.

What a journey it has been for The Nigerian music industry 👏🏽👏🏽
