Nigerian artiste, John Njeng-Njeng, popularly known as Skales, has recounted how he was always compared to his colleagues and constantly trolled while he was at Empire Mates Entertainment, EME.
He said he was being pressurised because he was under the shadow of two of the biggest artistes at that time; Banky W and Wizkid.
He recalled that trolls even compared him to N200 on Twitter because he wasn’t doing well at that time.
The ‘Shake Body’ crooner disclosed this in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.
Skales said, “I will go on Twitter, people were comparing me to N200. Of course, I was under the shadow of two of the biggest artistes at that time [Banky W and Wizkid]. So, you know the pressure mehn. I had to come through.
“Some times, I will release music, I will go to YouTube or some random sites, I will see like the first five comments na insults. I will just not want to read the comments again. And I will just be feeling bad not knowing that there is people that think what you just did is the most amazing thing they’ve heard so far.”
