Boy Spyce Speaks Out : “People Look Down On Me Because I Started My Music Career on Instagram”
Boy Spyce, the rapidly emerging Nigerian singer, has spoken candidly about his struggles as a budding musician in the music business. He claimed that many people “do not rate” him because he began his career on Instagram.
Boy spyce came into the limelight following the numerous covers and posts he made on Instagram as he showcased his abilities. Don Jazzy decided to take a chance on him and eventually offered him a recording deal with Mavins Records. He has since gone on to release chart-topping songs and melodies that the current afrobeat audience has since enjoyed.
But Boy Spyce says despite his relative success in the music scenes, many people still find it hard to give him credit for reaching the heights he has now. However, the mavin signee said he doesn’t feel terrible about being looked down on in an interview with Cool FM.
He said, “No, it doesn’t piss me off. I knew it was going to happen. I knew there are some people who are gonna find it hard to accept, but I mean, if you don’t face challenges, then are you really doing anything?”
He also explained that he feels pressure from colleagues in the sector to do things correctly if others are doing the same.
He said, “Uhmmm, it’s not bad pressure. It’s the pressure of, like, yeah, I can do more if this person is doing more, I can do more too. You know, they don’t have ten heads. It’s the pressure that pushes you to do better.
I am in competition with everybody, and it is just the truth. So I was thinking one day, I’m like, why is that everybody likes to say, “I’m not in a competition, I’m not in a competition
If you’re not really in a competition, then why is there a top 100 Apple Music chart, why are there awards, then? Everybody is in competition, but we are too scared to admit it. And this is the way I see it, right?
I am in a competition with everybody. It’s just like I’m in a classroom right now, I want to be the first in the class doesn’t mean that if you miss class one day and you want me to explain a Maths topic to you, I won’t. I will teach you.”
