Lanre Teriba made the statement during EsplashonTVC, where he said that Nigerian singers are not regarded abroad.
I travel a lot and I can tell you that Nigerian artistes are still seen as local musicians in the lens of foreigners. Even Wizkid is seen as an upcoming artiste. ~ Lanre Teriba
His statement has caused a reaction on social media and it is worthy of note that Wizkid’s has been on his own mini-tour lately covering different cities in America, from Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Edmonton.
