Popular Nigerian singer, Terry G has described himself as the Jesus of Nigerian music. The Nigerian music star reiterated that he set the path right for new trends in the Nigerian music industry.
Terry G who needs no introduction in the Nigerian music industry once ruled as king like seven to eight years ago. His songs were the life plugs of any get-together.
While speaking in an interview session with Channels TV, the ‘Free Madness’ crooner explained that Nigerians have come to embrace and love his style of music through another singer, Naira Marley. Terry G argued that he was the one who started the street madness of a thing only that he doesn’t have a movement like other artists who are currently reigning.
The singer then concluded that he is the ‘Jesus’ of the Nigerian music industry because his sacrifice has been the bedrock that the new reigning artists stand upon.
In his words:
”I’m the Jesus of Nigerian music, I’m not the Christ. The Christ is the savior, Jesus is a name, and for the fact that Jesus is the most popular name that died for us and sacrificed for us.
It took me a while to take this risk that a lot of persons discriminated against me for and now, they see people smoking, doing stuff and nobody is talking. There must be a pace-setter”.
Meanwhile, the singer accused Nigerians of being hypocritical in their doings. He recalled how much criticism he got from Nigerians because of his style of music, whereas, the same style they condemned sometimes ago has now become the most acceptable music style they all embraced now.
However, Terry G was conscious enough not to have himself compared to Naira Marley. He reiterated that it was not in his place to compare himself to the leader of the Marlian group on who is more infleuncial in their prime.
