Sister P slams video queens

VETERAN Bongo Flava artiste, Happy Peter, popularly known Sister P, has criticized domestic video queens for opting to sing, noting the move diminishes the music’s quality.



“The genre has experienced an increase in the number of people, who do not have skills in it but have simply forced their way into the music,” she noted.

The artiste issued the comments during an interview with a radio station and insisted the video queens should stick to their profession.

"The video queens have found out Bongo Flava is quite lucrative, for that matter, they all want to sing. With producer being keen on cashing in on the music, they simply accept bad song lyrics,” Sister P noted.

Sister P said the video queens should continue working in the profession and earn cash.

She had been out of the domestic music circles for a long time and last year disclosed she is yearning for composing a track with renowned artiste, Ali Kiba, claiming they can produce a good song.

Sister P has always maintained that she has what it takes to shine in Bongo Flava although she had not been active in the music for a long time.

Meanwhile, artiste Voice Wonder has disclosed that he has not fulfilled his plans this year and he is preparing for the next year.

"My plans were not fulfilled, I’m preparing to officially start recording songs in January next year, there a so many songs,” the artiste noted.

Voice Wonder, who rose to fame with a song titled 'Nimpende Nani', said he will introduce three tracks in January, with two of them featuring dance musician, Christian Bella, and another Bongo Flava musician, Barnaba.

"I will continue recording other songs, given I have plenty of tracks. I do not want to waste time, I want to work hard next year,” he said.

"I have seen domestic artistes do the same thing, there is nothing new in the music, given most of the tracks are almost the same,” Voice Wonder noted.

He was adamant he will successfully make his way back to fame, as it was the case in the past, as he has already assessed the music’s market.
