Nigerian music producer, Solomon Oyeniyi, aka K-Solo, has opened up that he was a broke man back in the days when he was rated as one of the biggest producers in Nigeria.


In a recent interview with GoldmyneTV, he stated that, though he was famous while producing Timaya and other big artistes, it didn’t fetch him money.

“when I was working on Timaya and the fame was so huge, I didn’t even have money to give out to people. People called me for interviews, but I couldn’t go and they felt I had pride. I didn’t have pride, but there was no money to give people who were supporting me on TV or radio. When I wanted to go to events, I would go with Timaya’s CDs to give out to people disturbing me for money.”


According to him, most of the young producers working with top musicians are poor.

I know many people with big names that cannot take care of themselves; they depend on girlfriends and ‘yahoo boys’ for survival. Some producers don’t have money to buy equipment. It is that terrible. They feel bad about it; I have gone through this too. I try to advice many of them never to give up as it was a phase we passed through too. The adage that empty barrel makes the loudest noise is true.  When people are wealthy, you hardly hear them talk” he said.
