Nigerian singer-songwriter and producer, Okwudili Okoli, professionally known as 6UFF, has said songwriters, and producers deserve more credit than they receive.

The Anambra-born producer stated this while addressing some major challenges confronting the Nigerian music industry.

According to him, a song will be a fruitless effort without the contributions of producers, songwriters, and engineers.

“A lot of people fail to realise that without the instrumental, there would not be a song,” 6UFF said.

“It’s just like filling your car with petrol for you to drive it. The artist is the petrol and the producer is the car itself. I blame the listeners, artistes, awards organizers for not doing enough to accredit the producers,” he added.

6UFF further urged stakeholders and his colleagues in the industry to step up their game a little bit. “We need to sort out how these guys are paid their dues, and how they are recognized in terms of royalties.”

6UFF is currently working on his first major project, an extended playlist titled “No Regrets” EP.

Speaking about the project set to drop in November, the ace producer said he’s always wanted to do something different apart from producing music.
