Islamic singer makes case for up-and-coming artistes

Islamic singer, Lawal Akindele Hammed, popularly known as Akobi Omo, has said that all up-and-coming artistes irrespective of the denomination and genre of music face a lot of challenges in pushing their career forward.

He urged stakeholders in the industry, especially promoters, to invest in them in order to be successful in the music business.

Hammed said that at the official launch of his first album entitled: ‘Moropeda’, held at Akionla Aboru Muslim prayer ground, Iyana Ipaja, Lagos State.

“There are artistes like me who are struggling to come out. They have brains, very talented and good messages to deliver, but there is nobody to help or promote them. Our promoters should take note of this and also consider us. The truth is that the popular artistes they invest on were once up-and-coming,” he said .

The musician, who started music in 2012, also noted that he would not relent in pushing his career forward as well as circulate his new album personally until he finally encounter divine help.
