Nigerian musician and producer, Terry G who’s widely known for his eccentric dressing and viral songs has declared himself the Jesus of Nigerian Music
After taking a long time break from the music scene without dropping any singles not to mention an album, he has broken silence in a new interview, making his new intentions known in the music industry.
“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,” the singer explained.
He added, “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.”
According to Terry G, he is the “Jesus” of the Nigerian music industry who set the pace and sacrificed for his artistic genre.
He, however, claimed many Nigerians were hypocritical, adding that they have embraced and supported most of the things they criticized him for in the past.
Comparing himself to rave of the moment, Naira Marley, Terry G admitted that it was not in his place to decide whether he was more influential than the UK-trained artist.
Marley, the singer said, is only trying to ‘archive’ him, although he sees both of them “making the world go crazier.”
