97% of Nigerian music have no meaning – Award winning OAP, Lolo 1

Multiple award winning OAP, Omotunde Adebowale a.k.a Lolo 1, seems not to be impressed by the songs being churned by Nigerian artistes lately. 
In an interview with HipTV she reportedly revealed that 97% of Nigerian music have no meaning.
She even compared the impact of the music of the likes of Obey, Sunny Ade to present generation and it is just so incomparable. See below…

“I’m not sure if they’re passing any message because if you are looking at the content of music, what will you say you’re buying? It’s not that everybody talks crap but 97% of it has no meaning. ‘Bangdadadang’, what does that mean? ‘Skibidipapap’, doesn’t have any meaning, ‘Wo!’, it’s just play, we are just having [fun] 

“It’s not like the music of Obey, Barrister, Sunny Ade, they had depth, they had what they wanted to pass, even though we have people here in this current generation that are doing conscious music, Fela was a great advocate, he did a lot of social impact in music.. but in this generation, I’m not sure.”
