Popular skit maker and artist, Oderhwo Joseph Efe, better known as Carter Efe, has revealed that Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer, Asake was chased off the stage during his concert at London’s O2 Arena last year.
The skit maker-turned-singer disclosed this while lamenting the unfair treatment melted at Nigerian creatives by Western music executives and show promoters in the latest episode of the Spill With Phyna Podcast.
He said, “The management of 02 Arena turned off the lights during Asake’s performance at the venue last year. Westerners treat us anyhow, and we still go back to them. They chased Asake off the stage. They put off the lights. I’m not lying.”
The host, Phyna suggested that Nigerian artists should unite and organize concerts for fans in the country but Carter Efe dismissed her suggestion because Nigeria lacks the facilities to host events of such magnitude.
