In a latest interview with BBC Igbo, Whitemoney, the winner of BBNaija season 6, shocked fans alike with his insights into his music career.
The reality star and self-aclaimed singer revealed that, as of now, music streaming hasn’t proven to be a lucrative avenue for him,
Continuing, Whitemoney expressed his dedication to conveying a strong message through his songs, stressing that while he may not possess what some consider a ‘fine’ voice, his focus is on delivering meaningful content rather than conforming to conventional standards.
“The truth is singing has not started paying me; I do not get money from streaming, but I get money from performances. I do not have the best voice but I have a message and melody,” he said during the interview.
The reality star turned musician acknowledged the criticism he gets, including from those hired to evaluate his work.
However, he made it clear that his artistic expression is not aimed to please everyone, especially from those who neither support nor finance his musical journey.
“People criticise me, even those paid to criticise me. What you need to know is that I do not sing to make you feel fine or please you because you do not feed me or fund my musical career,” Whitemoney added.
