Meanwhile, in another news…

Nigerian singer and rapper, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, better known as Skales, has claimed that he is underrated in the music industry despite being “the greatest artiste.”

The 32-year-old artiste stated this during a chat on Hip TV programme, Trending, hosted by reality star, KimOprah.

Skales said fans aren’t giving him enough credit and talked about on how he was battling with low self-esteem during the early years of his career.

The ‘As I Wake Up’ crooner also argued that he is among the set of Nigerian acts that took Afrobeats to an international level.

His statement was a mixture of lamentation and self-appraisal as he believes that he is the rave of the moment who is not appreciated enough for his craft.

He said: “I just rediscovered myself from 2020. I’ve been dealing with a lot of low self-esteem. Even while I have all the big songs in the world, I still doubt myself. But now, I’m more confident.

“I believe I’m among the set that started taking afrobeats to the world. I was honoured and opportune to be part of it. I tell myself I’m the greatest artist out there. This is no disrespect to anybody. It’s just my opinion of myself. I believe that I’m the rave of the moment because where I’m right now musically is inspiring.”
