Veteran record producer Olumide Ogunade, popularly known as ID Cabasa, has said most Nigerian artistes who are parents don’t approve of their kids listening to their music.

He said most artistes don’t want their kids to listen to their songs because of explicit lyrical content, stressing that most of them are just doing music to make ends meet.

Cabasa spoke in a recent episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast co-hosted by actor, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu.

He said: “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 [music executives are behind what artists put out]. A lot of us are doing this thing [music] for survival. So, the question is how do you balance who you are with who they [music executives] want you to be?”
