“People I knew before I became successful didn’t want to help me” – Singer, Kas

Nigerian singer turned evangelist, Kas, has revealed that people he knew in the music industry did not want to support him before he hit fame.

The former MoHits artiste said they refused to help him because they were scared of competing with him if he eventually becomes as successful as them.

Kas revealed this during a recent interview while weighing in on Odumodublvck’s recent remark that nobody paved the way for him or any other buzzing artiste.

He, however, noted that many people and organissations such as radio and TV stations, and media personalities like Kenny Ogungbe paved the way for those who are topping charts now.

He said; “I don’t know much about Odumodublvck, but in this industry, even people I knew before I became successful did not want to help me, because they feared competition.

“Regarding what the Odumodublvck guy said, good luck to him. I believe that many people paved the way, including radio stations, TV stations, blogs, newspapers, and individuals like Kenny Ogungbe. Many people contribute to an artiste’s success, and pride should not make us forget that.”

In another part of the interview, the singer urged younger artistes to show gratitude to older artistes for their contributions to the industry.

Kas said; “Respect for older artistes is crucial, because they paved the way for the younger generation. It is important to acknowledge their contributions and show gratitude. Mutual respect among artistes, regardless of age, is essential for the industry’s growth.

Last year in Birmingham, United Kingdom, I performed with Iyanya. Backstage, he thanked me for paving the way for artistes like him. I appreciated his acknowledgment, and respected him for showing respect.”
