Is Etcetera a problem? - written by Onyeka Ibeanusi

Writer and social commentator, Onyeka Ibeanusi answers the question y'all are beginning to ask, is Etcetera good or bad for the entertainment industry? His article below...
Many people felt the rude awakening to the presence and existence of singer cum writer Etcetera. I got to know about Etcetera in 2008 when I was still in Uniben. I remember a guitarist friend of mine saying, "Dis guy hold guitar like who no sabi play am."
Then I heard his songs and saw his videos. The videos were nice at that time and Etcetera was on his way to becoming the male version of Asa. I watched some other videos from him years later but unfortunately, Nigerians hardly patronise his genre of music and Etcetera disappeared.

Thank God entertainers lost their primaries - Etcetera writes

Singer turned writer Etcetera takes the entertainers who tried to venture into politics recently to the cleaners in this article...not nice but it's an interesting read. Read below...
My dear entertainers who just lost out in your quest for public office, can you please gbe enu e soun so that we can concentrate on the election at hand? Despite your claims, we all know the reasons why you sought public office in the first place. So many Nigerians have hurt their knees in praying to God to rid this nation of political miscreants and people with selfish motives in seeking public offices. So the fact that you all lost your primaries is a gargantuan sign that the system does not see you as worthy representatives of the Nigerian youths.
