Whitemoney, the victor of Big Brother Naija Season 6, who has transitioned into the music realm, recently disclosed that he hasn’t been reaping significant rewards from his musical endeavors.
During his interview with BBC Igbo, the reality TV star shed light on his experiences within the music industry, expressing disappointment in the lack of profitability through music streaming platforms.
He highlighted that while he might not possess what some consider a flawless singing voice, his primary focus remains on delivering substantial and meaningful content rather than conforming to conventional musical norms.
“The reality is that singing hasn’t translated into financial gains for me as I haven’t seen substantial returns from streaming. However, my earnings stem from live performances. While my voice may not be the epitome of perfection, I prioritize conveying a message and weaving melodies.”
Whitemoney further addressed the critiques he faces, including those from individuals paid to evaluate his work. He emphasized that his musical pursuits are driven by a desire to convey a message rather than aiming solely to appease critics who neither support nor finance his musical journey.
