Segun Akinlolu also known as “Beautiful Nubia’’, a folklore musician, on Tuesday implored musicians in the country to use their God-given talents to correct the ills of the society.
Nubia told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that inspiring songs would help correct some of the ills of the society.
He said good lyrics would also help people to overcome some of the challenges confronting the society.
“We have to sing about the challenges that people face every day and what we are not doing right and we want the leaders to correct.
“Musicians should not copy other people’s culture but they should use them to promote our culture to others,” he said.
He said that he was singing folklore in a traditional way to reflect people’s lives and what was wrong in the society.
“My music is a tradition-natural and contemporary in nature.
“We have to teach people how to be tolerant, honest, hard work, good neighbourliness, sincerity, love and protect one another through our songs.
“That is why I sing for societal change and the need to be upright in whatever we do,”he said.
The musician said that his songs had been inspired by peoples’ lives and had become a tool to sensitise the masses toward good life.
Nubia noted that change would come when people were ready for it and musicians would help such change to material by composing and singing good songs.
He said that Africa’s biggest challenge was not poverty caused by the economic situation as people had been saying.
He said that people were suffering from the poverty of character and lack of workable home-grown ideas.
NAN reports that Akinlolu had produced: “Seven lives-1997″; “Voice from heaven-1999”; “Fire on the roof -2001”; “Jangbalajugbu-2002”; “Ojo-2016” and others.
