TV host, Hero Daniels has explained what he feels is wrong with DJ Cuppy’s songs, after her recent track ‘Charged Up’ has became a trending topic on social media.
Many Nigerian are bashing Cuppy for consistently dropping songs which they believe are below par, Hero Daniels took time to analyse what’s wrong with her sound and why It hasn’t been accepted.
See his explanation below;
Let me explain what’s happening to DJ Cuppy ‘s sound
- She’s Experimenting beats from other parts of the world (werk had the London vibe and “charged up ” has the South African vibe) and imposing Naija lyrics on them which isn’t bad but so far hasn’t been accepted
Before you can do that, you need to have stayed and gained the trust of the very hard to please Nigerian audience. If it was Tiwa savage that sang the exact same lyrics. People would be feeling the vibe
@cuppymusic should continue with the familiar style and gain grounds and street credibility first before experimenting new fusions. Don’t get me wrong, you could sometimes get lucky with new Vibes like slimcase and the shaku shaku trend
But I think it’s time to go back to what’s familiar and gradually blow our minds with your unique sound w hen you’ve gained enough grounds in the ever competitive Nigerian music space
Greenlight was hit, currency was OK but the “werk ” and “charged up” needs to be charged up. Slow down your unique style for now and tweak it to suit your primary audience. Forever a Fan
