Memo to a musician

This gist is so true and I’m not so happy to write about it, but I guess it’s wrong to cheat others, especially when they really helped you without looking back. As a matter of fact, the only reason why I won’t mention this guy’s name is because e go get as e be. This guy has been on the music scene for quite a while now, but luck came his way a year ago when he was signed under a record label owned by an Ibo big boy based in Canada. He was given a magnum car, but with a driver, as the record label owner [CEO] didn’t want him to handle the car as he might soon ruin it. Anyway, he managed to go out with the car one day, and had a terrible accident with it, and by then, the CEO wasn’t in the country. I learnt the dreadlock wearing musician was so broke that he couldn’t afford to fix just one of the tyres, not to talk about the whole damage. Someone then introduced him to a guy who is into pimping rides. To cut the long story short, this dude fixed the musician’s car without receiving a dime, but promised to pay for the repairs once the car is been fixed. The repairs got the pimp my ride guy spending thousands of naira, but all he got back from the musician was peanuts, and after several arguments, he promised to settle the bills soon as he returns from a show in Jos. The car was released to him [the musician] six months ago, and till date the slim built tall dark musician is yet to fulfil his promise and has stopped picking this guy’s calls. I hear the guy is so much bitter with the artiste that he told his friends to beware of Nigerian artistes as some of them could be fraudsters. Anyway, I hope someone reading this will alert the musician to please go pay up his debt, as I might be forced to mention his name if I receive another call from this pimp my ride guy. The most annoying is this, how could you stop picking his calls? Obviously this guy isn’t ready to pay back.
To know who this musician is, he has a riff with another musician and has released a song about it. The song actually brought him back to limelight and a video of it is currently been aired. His name sounds like another name we can give a Hausa security man. And in another way, what other names do the Yoruba’s call a Hausa man? Oh now you know him, tell him to go pay up his debt.
