Nigerian musicians today are better than older generation musicians – Runtown

Runtown real names Douglas Jack Agu has stated that new generation musicians are better than their predecessors.

The singer who is popular for hits like ‘Gallardo’, ‘Domot’ and so on, believes that the Nigerian musicians of this era are far better than musicians of old in music and lifestyle.
In his own words,
“We’rebetter than those people, we are fresher. I think then, they had more lyrical content but their sound production was poor.

Past musicians didn’t dwell on generic sounds and generic names; we had a lot of great songs especially from the 80s.
They’re the ones that inspired us, people like Fela, not just their music but their lifestyle too. Fela is a human activist so even if you’re not a musician, you learn a lot of stuff from Fela.”
