Let's play #TheNakedTruth:
Name just 5 living Legends or Veterans in Nigeria that have sacrificed their own thriving career to help the Creative Industry. Please NAME them. I'm waiting.
When I see these bunch of latter day ungrateful #artistes
who don't know their history, nor the real facts.. Or even appreciate the battles this man has had to fight so they can have everything - they have today and flaunt on social media. I shake my head.
Whoosh! I stumbled on this photo of my father. Don't have any of these anymore, as we lost many of his #awards,
throphies, photos and gold plates in that famous fire that gutted the family house 12 years ago. He hasn't rebuilt his own house - But he has toiled day and & night to make sure there's a #COSON
House Finally Standing for ALL Nigerian Musicians. A place they can call their own. After giving almost 40 years of his life, blood and sweat to the Creative Industry. That's what I call leaving a LEGACY.
RESULTS matter big time. Look at the people who skew the facts. Look deeply at their track record, their agenda and ask yourself honestly what they have sacrificed or achieved for the good of others. I am so proud of Chief Tony Okoroji. And NO! I do not speak because I am his daughter. I SPEAK as a Creative Artiste myself who knows the value of true leadership and has earned the right to speak.
1984 this young talented musician was making waves with hits like 'Juliana' which went gold, 'Locomotion' and 'Mama and Papa'
He considered his music a melange of highlife, afrobeat and pop.
Apart from his music he was also a producer and headhunter for EMI, discovering artists like Dizzy K Falola and Angela Star.
By 29 he was elected the youngest ever National President of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN) and today
Chief Tony Okoroji is Chairman of the COSON (Copyright society of Nigeria) Board. #Amazing #Music #IntellectualProperty #Copyright #Success #Legend #Career #Life #Purpose #Passion #Hardwork #History #PhotooftheDay
