Nigerian hip-hop artist, Sodiq Abubakar Yusuf, stagely known as CDQ has faulted the new trend of show promoters dragging out artistes over charging for a performance.
The ‘Nowo E Soke’ crooner said instead of calling out artists over pricey booking fees, show promoters should settle for underground artists whom their budget can afford.
Speaking in a recent interview in Lagos, CDQ said most of the A-list artists invested a lot in their careers to reach their current heights, hence, the pricey booking fees.
“As a promoter, if you can’t afford a particular artist because of the pricey booking fee, leave him and go for who you can afford.”
He however,urged show promoters to collaborate to be able to afford pricey artists for their concerts.
