Terri has been advised on several occasions to leave the record label. Why? It’s not just the issue of Wizkid “stealing” his shine but there were several instances that compelled people to talk. Wizkid and Terri always end up releasing songs on the same day. A move, in my opinion, is not wise.
Ask yourself who would people want to listen to first? Wizkid or Terri? Obviously Wizkid, because he’s the bigger artistes. Terri might still get some attention but its never ever enough especially for an artiste that trying to penerate the music industry,
“Bia” didn’t last a week before WizKid decided to drop “Fever”. The video which features “Tiwa Savage” further drifted attention from the track and everyone eventually forgot about it.
Another one was with his 2019 song “On Me” which was released the same day Larry Gaaga dropped the hit track “Low” featuring with WizKid. This was Wizkid’s first track after a long hiatus so definitely everyone wanted to heard the real Starboy. So again, Terri was nowhere to be found.
Terri showed signs of doing wonders again after the failure of “On Me” with the release of “Non-Stop”. This particular track was dope but little did he know that something much bigger was about to hit his way – Wizkid’s collaboration with Beyonce ‘Brown Skin Girl‘.
Aside releasing during the same period, Wizkid is not doing enough in promoting this young talent. He rather prefer hiding him than putting him out there fully for everyone to meet and know.
Not to start with comparisons, but with the careers of Joeboy, Fireboy, Rema, Lyta, and Tclassic, you’ll see that Starboy Terri has a long way to go. These guys within a few months have shattered the industry not just in Nigeria but out of the country. They were well introduced into the industry by their record label, packaged and promoted for everyone to hear their sound, appreciate and love them.
Music lovers have labeled these guys as the next to take over the music scene after the likes of Wizkid, Burna Boy, Davido, Kizz Daniel, and other prominent acts. They are the future of Nigeria’s music and Starboy Terri who even got out before them is still struggling to get a spot.
