Whitemoney, the winner of Big Brother Naija Season 6 who has ventured into music, recently disclosed in an interview with BBC Igbo that he has not been reaping financial benefits from his musical pursuits.
Despite acknowledging that his singing voice may not be considered exceptional, Whitemoney highlighted that his primary focus is on delivering meaningful content rather than conforming to conventional standards.
During the interview, he revealed that music streaming has not been a lucrative source of income for him. He clarified that his earnings primarily come from live performances rather than digital music platforms.
Whitemoney addressed criticism about his vocal abilities, stating, “The truth is singing has not started paying me because I don’t get money from streaming, but I get money from performances.
I don’t have the best voice but I have a message and melody.”
He emphasized that he sings to convey a message and create melodies, not necessarily to meet conventional expectations, and expressed indifference towards criticism, noting that he doesn’t sing to please critics who neither support nor fund his musical career.
