ELDEE FANS CAUSE THE FIGHTS BETWEEN NIGERIAN MUSICIANS
Eldee Fans Cause The Fights Between Nigerian Musicians…
Legendary Nigerian rapper Lanre Dabiri popularly known as Eldee the Don, who is now based in the United States says fans are the cause of the unnecessary beefs and fights between contemporary Nigerian musicians. According to him, the frequent comparisons of these musicians that is not a thing in social media called stanning is unnecessary. One can enjoy the music of every Nigerian musician that are putting their best in their craft and flying the nations flag high locally and internationally without putting them in comparison.
He made this point via his official twitter handle @eLDeeTheDon after going through the major trends on twitter today the 7th day of March 2021, which is majorly a comparison between the following A List Nigerian musicians Wizkid, Davido, Burnaboy, Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade, Teni, and Tems.
Here is what he wrote:
“@eLDeeTheDon – I don’t understand this zero sum game you guys play with naija artists. Why must you apply your crab-in-a-bucket bias to every discussion!??
Wiz, Burna, Davido, Tiwa, Simi, Yemi,…and many more are ALL dope!”
“If you’re Nigerian, you should be rooting for ALL nigerian artists, not out here trying to tear one down for another.”
A lot of twitter users were of the opinion that Eldee’s point is valid but these comparisons will continue as it is a thing with music. People will always have favorites, and they will stan their favorites in the way they know best even if it means tearing other artistes down for their favorite. Here are some of their opinions:
“@mc_uyi1 – Who dor receive giveaway from Wizkid, Davido, Tiwa, Tems or any artist this month, why ona serious dey drag artist when good, dey fight their UNSEEN BATTLES, ona be Jesus abi God.”
“@RythmOla – No waste your breath. Wetin dem no understand no go kill dem,but stalls some.Earlier I read a tweet of one that was vex Burna/Davido attended the premiere of the movie they contributed to for free. Unbelievable.”
“@mvalentine026 – Lols one of the mentioned artiste compares himself with his pairs like they ate in a competition, so please what’s your point? Not only that, he goes to interview to say bad about them and their work.”
“@olori_hadassah – Honestly I really don’t understand why some people will just be typing stuffs and fighting one artist for the other, do they even know you? Like what’s your headache, it’s only in Nigeria you’ll see that.”
“@Harckhan – @eLDeeTheDon – Baba don’t mind them. This never happened during your times. All we did was enjoy you all and appreciated your works. We had no time for comparisons.”
