Popular music producer and record label boss, Don Jazzy, has revealed that female artists find it more difficult in the music industry than their male counterparts.
Speaking on the Off Air show with Gbemi and Toolz, Don Jazzy said the music industry was kinder to male artistes than female artistes, saying that “The industry is generally kinder to male artistes, and I don’t know why. In this music industry, I have noticed that women suffer. Over the years, I have seen that it’s a difficult market for women. Everybody wants to have sex with them and how many people are they going to have sex with? It’s ridiculous.”
On how he discovered the new sets of artistes signed to his record label, he said, “I discovered them through social media. People don’t know the power of social media. I look out for talents, though (good) looks are a plus. I also look at the space the person would fill in my camp. If I see you on my timeline and you sound like Rema, I obviously don’t need you. If I also see you on Instagram and you sound like somebody the industry already has, that means I don’t need you.”
