Years ago, Gabriel Oche Amanyi, popularly known as Terry G , was the posterboy of Nigerian music industry. He once enjoyed the spotlight that the likes of Davido and Wizkid enjoy presently. But after a while, there was a shift in power.
While everyone is still talking about how Davido’s 30 Billion Concert reunited Mo’ Hits Stars, the performance and response of the crowd to Terry G shouldn’t be overlooked. As if he was performing to save his career before the massive crowd, the singer showed all that care to watch that he was yet to give up on music anytime soon.
While he was performing Free Madness and
Akpako at the concert, the energy, dance steps and his mastery of the stage cheer up the crowd.
No doubt, Wizkid and Davido are the leaders of the New School. But in Terry G, we have an old brand that still has much to give. He may have squandered some opportunities in the past and he may be crazy, but his talent is still in abundance.
Davido should be commended for extending invitations to yesterday’s stars like Daddy Showkey, Ikechukwu, Terry G, among others.
