Paul ‘Rudeboy’ Okoye of the defunct P-Square boy band has dished out some words of advice to emerging musicians.
The top Nigerian music act warned upcoming singers about the type of content they make when creating their first viral video. He implied that contents showing them smoking throughout the video should be shunned.
Rudeboy stated that smoking throughout a viral video is bad for the music career of upcoming artistes. In his words, he said; “As a new artiste, you’re making a viral video of your first single and all you do is smoking throughout in the video. My brother na there your problem start”.
He continued, “the only thing getting higher is your brain, no be only you sabi smoke”.
Paul Okoye, known by his stage name ‘Rudeboy’, started his solo career in 2017 after the disbandment of P-Square. In 2019, his successful song, ‘Reason With Me’ emerged as the music video with the highest YouTube views in Africa.
Meanwhile, Paul Okoye, who is better known as Rudeboy, has officially received a GOLD plaque from YouTube after hitting 100 million views on his hit single ‘Reason With Me’ on the site.
YouTube announced that the official music video of the ‘Reason With Me’ song has been GOLD certified after it reached 100 million views on the music and video streaming site.
