Renowned Nigerian singer and music producer, Don Jazzy, has said he feels sorry for female singers on how many producers demand sex from them in the music industry.
The Mavin CEO who appeared on BBC News Pidgin live interview recently, acknowledged that female artistes face more challenges in breaking out than their male counterparts.
“I have a record label, so I have male and female artistes. In the past, maybe I had the opportunity to go through a female artiste’s phone and read conversations that the female artistes had had with a bunch of producers, TV people, people in the industry.. everybody just wants sex. It’s tiring. I feel sorry for them,” the 38-year-old shared with pitty.
Don Jazzy said the Nigerian music industry is flawed and needs to be fixed, adding that he believes the society needs to raise the male child better.
He added: “We need to fix the system in general. We need to train the male child better.”
As an alternative solution, Don Jazzy said that female artists should publicly expose music producers and media personalities who demand sex in exchange for a deserved favour. “If these young ladies start calling them out, that’s a start. If a producer says he wants to sleep with you, call him out!” Don Jazzy reiterated.
