Yemi Alade, Blaqbonez, Olakira condemn artists who use ‘streaming farms’ after BNXN called out Ruger
Numerous Nigerian artists have come out to speak against their colleagues who use “streaming farms” to boost their songs.
It started with Ruger and Buju Benson arguing on Twitter.
Benson stated that streaming farms exist in Nigeria where record label bosses are paid money to get artists’ songs on the music charts. This gives them an advantage over artists who rely solely on organic streams.
His tweet resonated with other artists, and they now join him in condemning streaming farms.
Blaqbonez tweeted: “All of you using streaming farms would be exposed soon. Awon hushpuppi.”
Yemi Alade quote-tweeted BlaqBonez tweet, adding: “Never saw a ‘realler’ tweet! Somebody pls frame this tweet for me. I want to hang it on my wall.”
Olakira also weighed in, saying: “And If you no dey pay these streaming farms, one guy from abule agba go borrow data come online talk say you fall off.”
He added: “Y’all ruining the industry for genuine hustlers, Judgement day dey come.”
BlaqBonez in another tweet said: “It’s actually so painful say u go hustle, push your shit, some niggas go just use money buy the charts. same men go come out give God credit. Lmao continue.”
