Winnie Nwagi, despite working on a few projects with Nigerian artists, is not a fan of how they operate and believes they are selfish. (They’re self-centered – Winnie Nwagi dislikes working with Nigerian artists)
“Fire Dancer,” a collaboration between Swangz Avenue singer Winnie Nwagi and Nigerian singer Slim Prince, was a big hit in Uganda. Not quite in Nigeria.
She believes this is the case with several other collaborations between Ugandan and Nigerian artists, and she accuses the West Africans of being exploiters.
Nwagi revealed during an interview on Galaxy FM that she no longer wants to work with Nigerian artists because they do not promote music in their country.
We enjoy collaborating with Nigerian artists. It’s great because imagine a song with Burna Boy in it. It would be a big hit in Uganda because you would promote it so well (in Uganda).
If he has time, he can even assist you in shooting the video, but that artist will not promote the song in Nigeria. I’m not sure why they feel so good.
I now feel like I resent them personally. We have artists here who have done collaborations with them, but this music is not played in their clubs or anywhere else. It ends here. They don’t promote our music.
Winnie Nwagi is not the first local artist to express similar feelings about Nigerian artists and their selfish behavior.
Chameleone and Bebe Cool, among others, have faced similar difficulties. (They’re self-centered – Winnie Nwagi dislikes working with Nigerian artists – celebrity Gossip 2022
