Tekno vs Seyi Shay, Is it even a contest? Well done the Juice!!

Live performances are the final frontier of the Nigerian music industry. It is shocking that the vast majority of musicians are content to singing along to their backing tracks, complimenting the digitally rendered vocals with their amateur hoots and yells, but this is changing. The talent pool is improving. This is helped in part by the increasing number of talent competitions in the Nigerian mediasphere. We watch them, we listen to them, and we judge them. We know what they're capable of. This is better, and if not better, then at least more original and sincere than the Dbanj's, and Davido's of the world. And this is one of the reasons why the Ndani spot on performances on the Juice are incredible. Take this performance by Tekno below.

I could do as well. I'm not even trying to be funny here. It's almost beyond commentary but I'll do what I can. He can't hold a tune that sounds like a tune, and he's quite possibly tone deaf. He doesn't mind all of this at all. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that he likes this about himself. I think it's rather good advertising you know? At least you know that if you hire him, this is exactly what you're going to get. It's startlingly bad, especially when you consider what other people in the industry are doing with the opportunity.

Yes, she kills it. It's soft and clean, and even when she strains she keeps it under control. You can tell that she's got a sore throat or something, but it's still great. This is the standard, and it's time that the industry met it. I am thoroughly impressed. She will go far.

Happy Days,
