Singer Feli Nuna has controversially said the songs some mainstream release in contemporary times are not better than the demos she produced back in the days.
Her post if clearly analyzed shows the music the so-called A-list and their subordinates artistes drop and take so much pride in them were something she did as an unrefined artiste years ago albeit she indicated her post is not to belittle any artiste.
She tweeted; “Funny how artists be releasing music and it sounds like my old demos”.
She further dropped a separate tweet saying;
She tweeted; I’m not capping abt what I said about artist’s new music sounding like my old demos neither am I trying to ‘start anything’. I have always experimented with sound mixing genres etc.. even more in the past but my former label chose to release the ones that sounded more commercial.
Then at some point I admit to also believing that it was the way to have a hit song. Forcing me to create music that sounded more like the ones out there on the radio etc. I wasn’t truly happy.. but I felt that was what I had to do to be a successful artist.
That’s one of the 2 main reasons I took another break off the scene from 2019 – 2021. Cos I had to reassess my vision and get back on track
The thing that I loved doing so much became a difficult chore. It became such a pain. Also because I was an independent artiste at the time
And I had to fund and promote and market my music on my own. I struggled to maintain the standard I set and was used to.
Now I’m in a better place. Grateful for the resources I have now. I’m definitely gonna keep pushing till I’m one of the biggest from Africa.”
