Ace broadcaster, Emma Ugolee has simply shared an attention-grabbing piece concerning the affect of music on the thoughts of a median Nigerian youth and the way Olamide’s YBNL performed a job in shaping the present era’s mindset.
Do you recall what Olamide stated YBNL stands for? Yahoo Boy No Laptop computer.
This, i believed was one of the highly effective messges for children on the time when the craze for being fraudsters was king.
YBNL meant that there have been different methods to get wealthy and he was going show this with music. Did he do it? O sure certainly
Although his no show of wealth precept wouldn’t make this public information, Olamide is tremendous snug and doesn’t want weekly selfies in non-public jets to show it. His riches most enviably, has trickled right down to as many as can attain his desk to feed
However extra remarkably than this, the YBNL message impressed many extra youths to see hope in shutting down the laptop computer and reaching for the mic. Although Lord of Ajasa & Dagrin had been his clear predecessors, Olamide has by way more clones in his style of rap impressed by the yoruba language. #reality
Level being, generations could be influenced by the message that music stars carry. Rising up it was an abomination to the touch marijuana as ajebutter children. It was meant for touts who we had been ready to look at run mad. Then got here Snoopdog’s “Doggystyle” and Dre’s “Power” in 1992, Each child in Nigeria now wanted to smoke weed to be cool. Due to the facility of the message within the music for the younger minds.
Think about if the YBNL message had extra Nigerian acts becoming a member of in on emphasizing the making of fresh cash, the way in which the womans anatomy and the senseless blowing of money has been glorified, we’d have had much less panties and pads to fret about.
Now nearly each household has a yahoo plus boy in it. Women proudly say their boyfriend is a G boy, Songs say you achieve nothing with out shopping for the benz by any means neccessary, Moms look the opposite manner, understanding totally nicely how their sons make the cash.
Sure, the federal government has failed, the church buildings have failed with grooming the youths, mother and father are failing too however these are hardly their position fashions so probably the most painful failure in shaping the thoughts state of a era has come from those that the children would quite take heed to. The musicians. They’ve failed woefully. Take a look at the era they’re grooming. You’re a part of the issue.
