Fuji music maestro, General Kollington Ayinla has berated trending singer, Portable over the lyrics of his hit song, ‘Zazu zeh’.
Kollington noted that lyrical contents and the essence of music are fast diminishing while urging musicians to create music that will have a positive effect on society.
He said: “Musicians don’t care about the lyrics of their music anymore and the lessons that people ought to learn from their songs. In lyrics like Ori e o Foka sibe, someone called himself Were Olorin (referring to Portable). He said in his song, ‘Were Adugbo wo ilu o’ meaning the mad man of the streets has come o. And unfortunately, people are dancing to it. Are they improving the community or they are adding to the problems?”
Continuing, the music General also stated that Portable’s Zazu is an adaptation of his 1981 classic song ‘ Zaa Zazu’.
“He (Portable) sang ‘Zazu’- a song style I released in 1981. Such songs with nothing to better a lot of the youths ought not to be played on the radio or on TV, but nowadays it is all about melody and street madness and not music that will last and impact on the society,” said Kollington.
