Ex triple MG and now Mavin artiste Iyanya expressed his disappointment the street has taken over the talents in the country.
‘Honestly, I feel like some guys on the street are doing their thing better than reality show winners. I am actually not hearing from most reality show winners after winning the event; instead, people are moving into movies after winning. Once they win, the next thing is to see them on one soap opera.’
Iyanya faults the attitudes of some winners who he says does not have any concrete plan once they are out of the Project Fame Academy. He feels majority of them cannot stay on the grind to make a success out of their career- like artistes from the streets do.
‘Even me, after I won project fame, it took me two years before finally getting it right. Not like I didn’t drop songs during those period but nobody knew me’. Most of them don’t get the breakthrough because thats not what they want to be. Only the guys who knows what they wanted becomes big later’,
Iyanya says he doesn’t pay attention to the reality talent hunts these days.
‘I wont lie to you, I am not interested in most of the present shows anymore. I don’t even know what most of them are doing anymore’.
