Gospel artiste, Lanre Teriba is a popular Nigerian gospel artiste and on a TV show recent he reveals that Nigerian biggest musicians are regarded as ‘local artistes’ in the United state of America and other foreign nations.
He made this claim as he insist that the Nigerian media has failed in adequate positive reporting and promotion of the country’s artistes and as a result told on their image in foreign countries.
”Our media houses are not taking us there. Like in South Africa, they show their own music, they don’t even show international music. I have been to America, they don’t show Nigerian music, they call us local artistes,” in his words.
Lanre Teriba added that even top Nigerian Musicians such as 2face Idibia and Wizkid are seen as local artistes in America.
“I travelled a lot, I have been to over 21 states in America, even 2face and Wizkid are being viewed as local artistes.”
