Mavins Records act and Nigeria’s alternative music sensation, Johnny Drille makes the cover for the latest issue of MyStreetz Magazine.
The publisher of the magazine, Sesan Adeniji shared this on Instagram with the caption:
Out there in the music industry, there’s a false narrative used to describe what today’s successful song and great artistes should sound like. This unsubstantiated hypothesis driven by folks who only see trendy-pop like dance music as the only yardstick to portray successful artistic delivery, is the catalyst being used to deprive an array of overwhelming quality music content radio airplay and cast shadows on artistes that churn out these materials. In the midst of this abnormality, artistes like Johnny Drille grouped under alternative music continue to thrive despite his journey with his music genre on a road less travelled.
Not too long ago, some unique groups of artistes that radio left for dead created a subconscious movement with the hashtag #fucktheradio. It was an eye opener. Until we all step outside of our sentimental music confines, and witness the fan base controlled by our alternative artistes, until then, we cannot fully have a grasp of the happenings in different terrains in the Nigerian music industry”
