Harrysong Reveals Why Artistes Can’t Compete With Wizkid, Davido, Burnaboy

Harrison Okiri, also known as Harrysong, has given reasons why it is difficult for artistes to compete with top singers Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy.

He said during an interview that because the Afrobeats trio works extra hard to hold onto their top spots, it is virtually impossible for others to compete with them or unseat them.

However, Harrysong stated that this does not imply that musicians are not working hard, but rather that everyone is thriving in their respective lanes.

The singer of “Reggae Blues” added that he is not in the music industry to outdo or outshine his contemporaries.

He said there was no need for envy or jealousy and that it is equally necessary to recognise and honour someone who has made some amazing professional strides.

Harrysong then referenced Burna Boy’s Grammy award and noted that when he won, it was a thing of pride for Africa and Nigeria.

He said: “Everyone is the king of their castle. Artistes such as Davido, Burna Boy and Wizkid work really hard to maintain their prime position. However, it is not that every other person is not working hard.

“But as far as I’m concerned, I am not here to compete with anyone. If one has the spirit of competition, I don’t think one will be able to ‘beat’ it.

“It is important to always pay compliments to people who are doing well. If one congratulates them on their successes, one is also tapping into their grace.

“There is no need for envy or jealousy. The way I see it; when one person wins, it is a win for everyone. For example, when Burna Boy won the Grammy Award, he brought glory to Africa, not just Nigeria.”

Speaking on his plans for 2023, he said: “I can assure my fans that they will hear new sounds because the music is changing. I will give them what they love.”
