Nigerian singer, Gabriel Amanyi preferably called “Terry G” is trying to blow a trumpet that would probably not go farther than his corridor.Terry G on an interview with channels television describes himself as “The Jesus of Nigerian music”
The akpako dancer who has been quiet in the musical scene for a while claims that he changed the phase of Nigerian music and that Nigerians have now accepted his kind of music. During the interview, the singer admitted he was crucified and discriminated because of his kind of music and the fact that he smokes.
“I’m the Jesus of Nigerian music, I’m not the Christ. The Christ is the savior, Jesus is a name, and for the fact that Jesus is the most popular name that died for us and sacrificed for us,”
“It took me a while to take this risk that a lot of persons discriminated against me for and now, they see people smoking, doing stuff and nobody is talking. There must be a pace-setter.”
He, however, claimed that Nigerians were hypocrites for criticising him for the same crime they commit.
On comparison with the Marlian boss “Naira Marley“, Terry g says he is in no place to decide if he was more influential than the UK trained artiste.
Naira Marley said
“he is only trying to archive him although they are both making the world crazier”
Terry g mentioned when he rejected a deal from Sony music due to it wasn’t beneficial to him and therefore urged all musicians to be fully aware of the agreements before signing any deal.
“When the lights are shining on you, do not think that they would be forever. My own fame was full of pressure, controversies,” he advised all musicians to take full advantage of their fame as it is temporary.
