“Americans see Wizkid, 2face as upcoming artist” – Lanre Teriba

Lanre Teriba who is a popular gospel artist and ‘Atorise’ crooner has said Americans perceive Wizkid and 2face as upcoming artists.

The vocal singer made this known during an interview session on TVC Entertainment Splash.

Fondly called ‘Atorise’ by his fans, the talented singer urged the Nigerian media and government to support the music industry.

In his words: ” I travel a lot and I can tell you that Nigerian artistes are still seen as local musicians in the lens of foreigners. Even Wizkid is seen as an upcoming artiste.

His statement has however sparked different reactions from fans of Wizkid who have resorted to bashing him on social media.

South African media doesn’t play international music, they promote their own music. Americans call Nigerian artistes local. Even 2face is called a local artiste. We are the ones who gave them that idea”.
