New Generation Artists Need to Respect Legends – ID Cabasa


Veteran record producer, Olumide Ogunade aka ID Cabasa has sent a message to young artists.


According to him, the new generation of singers must respect those that were here before them.


Recall that veteran singer, Eedris Abdulkareem chided Burna Boy after he claimed that no Nigerian artist paved the way for him in the music industry.


The situation degenerated into a social media firestorm between the duo, with fast-rising rapper OdumoduBlvck and other new artists picking sides with Burna Boy while Jaywon and some veterans backed Abdulkareem.


Speaking in the latest episode of the ‘Afrobeats Podcast,’ ID Cabasa said for peace to reign in the Nigerian music industry, there has to be mutual understanding between the new generation artists and veterans.


He said the newbies need to respect the veterans, and the veterans need to be more honourable.


He said, “The new guys need to respect the OGs. The OGs need to be more honourable. You are not competing against these guys. If you see yourself as a competition to these guys, what you’ve done is that you’ve mortgaged your honour.”


The producer urged music legends to support young artists instead of “being too critical” of them.
