Fast-rising singer and rapper, Crown Uzama aka Shallipopi has likened money earned through music to the one made from rituals commonly known as blood money.
He stated that music money is the same as ritual money and even if he stops singing today, he will still be getting credit alerts as royalties from his already released songs.
Shallipopi talked about how profitable the music industry is during a recent interview on the Zero Conditions podcast.
The ‘Plutomania’ crooner was asked how he copes with balancing his income and expenditures amid endless demands from family and friends.
“How do you find a balance between giving to family members, saving for yourself and knowing when to draw the line?” the host asked.
In his response, Shallipopi explained that music returns are very abundant in such a way that his pocket can be empty no matter how much he spends or gives out.
According to the 23-year-old singer, he never knew how profitable the industry was until this year after releasing his hit singles.
He said; “You will never understand music money. Music money is like ritual, there’s too much money in music that you cannot understand at all. Even if you’re an artiste that came out in one month and your song is just big, no worry.
Me now, I no dey balance anything; if my family request, I dey give because I know that, the music will not stop. Even if I stop singing, the music I’ve dropped will continue giving me money”.
