That up-and-coming musicians in Nigeria go through a lot of challenges is no longer news. But it is appalling when a struggling act paid as much as N50, 000 to perform at a show, yet he didn’t get the opportunity to showcase his talent.

This was what happened to Tochukwu Ezeji, a 21-year-old Economics graduate.

Refusing to reveal the identity of the person he allegedly paid to, Tboi, as fondly called in showbiz circles, told Sunday Scoop, “I have actually experienced situations where I was asked to pay money in the past and it still happens. One happened recently, though I don’t want to give details of it because I believe it is part of the game. If you have a passion for what you do, you just have to make sacrifices. I once paid over N50,000 to perform at a show, but I didn’t even get to perform. The person later said he would make it up to me.”

Having recently dropped two singles, Wine and Ki Lo Fe, he stated that he was not in the music business to compete with anyone but to make his own sound.

He said, “I see Wizkid as my mentor actually; he is a role model to lots of artistes like me. Though my style is similar to his, I am not doing his kind of music so as to take his place in the industry. I am doing music to have my brand. I want people to know me and listen to my sound. I am doing music to promote my culture.”
