Mavin act, Reekado Banks has made it known he cares less about negative comments thrown his way, as long as he is smiling to the bank.
He said this in a recent interview: “Every artiste should know how to quantify their success. This year has not ended, but I have made more money than I did last year or the previous year. It is just the perception of some people who think this year has not been good for Reekado. I’ve made more than double of what I made last year. So, if you think last year was good for Reekado, I can confidently tell you that this year is far better.
“I am sure Tiwa Savage would not say that this year hasn’t been a good one. She dropped hit songs and she is fully booked for December. I am fully booked for December too and the same thing applies to other artistes under Mavin. So, I don’t understand why people are comparing last year with this year.”
On controversial artistes getting more recognition; “Controversies, in a way, put you in the public eye. In showbiz, no matter how good you are, the controversial singers get more credit and awards. But I don’t quantify success with awards; it is far different from that.”
