Samklef made a controversial statement on his Twitter page that made quite the buzz on social media. The singer explained that lyrics no longer sells in the music and that only rappers have lyrical content. Lyrics no dey sell for naija we just want party and Dey alright. Simple hook repeat am twice everybody singalong.
The singer was healiy bashed for this as majority of music fans did not agree with his statement. A certain twitter then asked him now artistes like Simi, Adekunle Gold, Oritsefemi, Teni and Johnny Drille have been able to make it in the industry with superb lyrical content. If lyrics no dey sell so how come simi , Adekunle ,oritsefemi ,teni ,jonnydrille , and kiss blow
He, however, responded still insisting that only rappers have lyrical content. He explained that the content that Simi and the other mentioned artistes showcase can not be regarded as lyrics. He wrote:Those are not lyrics. Na rapper get lyrics
