Nigerian songwriter and hitmaker, Harrysong has clarified that he didn’t join the music industry to compete with anyone, stating that anyone who intends to compete will not get there.
Speaking to Sunday Scoop, Harrysong said, “Everyone is the king of their castle. Artists such as Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid work really hard to maintain their prime position.
“However, it is not that every other person is not working hard. But, as far as I’m concerned, I am not here to compete with anyone.
“If one has the spirit of competition, I don’t think one will be able to ‘beat’ it. It is important to always pay compliments to people who are doing well. If one congratulates them on their successes, one is also tapping into their grace.
“There is no need for envy or jealousy. The way I see it; when one person wins, it is a win for everyone. For example, when Burna Boy won the Grammy Award, he brought glory to Africa, not just Nigeria.”
Responding to a question bordering on what he’s currently working on, the songwriter who mainly wrote KCee Limpopo’s song after they met said, “I am working on my album, which is titled, God Amongst Men.
“I can assure my fans that they will hear new sounds because the music is changing. I will give them what they love.”
Harrysong also believes that Afrobeat has come to stay on the global scene. He expressed this when he said, “Afrobeats cannot go off the map. It is impossible. Nigeria remains the giant.”
