I don’t mind comments like these from Veteran musician Tee Mac. However, I am a fix it kind of girl. So, I always want to know how the person saying there is a problem is fixing the problem. What is the proffered solution or solutions?
I am happy Tee Mac has the requisite training. What is he doing to pass on that training, whether for free or for a fee, to our younger generation? Don’t tell a young person in Nigeria, “go and learn music” or make it less “linear.” Speak English to them. Show them what that means.The presumption is that he is yet to pass this knowledge he holds. If he is already doing that, I stand corrected and hope that the industry locally, over there, supports him in spreading his message and educating our artists. Our artists need the music education that I have said on AML includes music business and music law.
