Record producer ID Cabasa has revealed that most Nigerian artists who are parents do not want their kids to listen to their music due to explicit lyrical content. He explained that many artists only do music to make ends meet and don’t want their children to be influenced by their songs. Cabasa made these comments on The Honest Bunch Podcast co-hosted by actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel. He emphasized that many artists are doing music for survival and struggle to balance who they are with who they are expected to be. This sheds light on the challenges faced by artists in Nigeria and the impact of explicit content on their own families.

“I can tell you that most artists in Nigeria that you see, they don’t want their kids to actually listen to their own songs. And don’t blame them.
“I don’t like apportioning blames because they people funding . A lot of us are doing this thing for survival. So, the question is how do you balance who you are with who they want you to be?”
