Tonto Dikeh Needs To Learn How To Sing . via [@trends_ng]

Babatunde Jezreel Okungbowa popularly known
as OJB is no stranger to the Nigerian music
industry. Matter of fact, he can be described as one
of the pioneers of the industry as a veteran music
producer and singer.

In an interview culled from Nigerian Tribune in
which he talks about his sojourn in music and how
he has remained relevant for almost two decades,
OJB shared his thoughts on Nollywood actress,
Tonto Dikeh’s entry into the music scene.

He said: “The problem is that she wasn’t listening
to the key thing. People did not download the song
out of love but out of surprise. If she really wants to
go into music professionally, she needs to take out
her time and learn how to sing.”
However, OJB notes that she did not learn as her
subsequent efforts do not show any remarkable
improvement. “It’s a lot easier to cross into acting
from singing but a lot harder to cross into singing
from acting. If after her first single, she got better
people to coach and produce her songs, she might
not have complained so much but there was no
improvement.”

And he concluded by saying of the actress, “As far
as I’m concerned, Tonto Dike’s delving into the
music industry is a bad idea right now. Her wanting
to sing is not bad but her thinking that on the
platform of the fact that she is a movie star, so she
can sing, is a very bad idea.”
