‘Atorise’ crooner , Lanre Teriba who is a popular gospel artiste has said Americans perceive Wizkid and 2face as upcoming artistes.
The vocal singer made this known during an interview session on E-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. 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”.
