Dancehall artiste, African China, has blown hot on the Nigerian government thereby accusing them of not helping the entertainment industry due to the fact that the government itself is corrupt.

According to the artiste, this is because the first music Pirate that was caught in Nigeria, was never prosecuted and till date, and no one knew what transpired.

“Our government is corrupt. I remembered the first music pirate they caught a foreigner, and they asked us to come and sign so that the guy could be arraigned. Till today, we have not heard nor ever seen the guy again.”

He added that the artistes also should be blamed because they release too many songs into the market without allowing the previous release to have a good balance.

“Artistes also should be blamed for releasing too many songs into the market within a year. Aside that, they will now pay the Alaba guys to put their songs on mix tap; that's piracy and it is bad.”
