I’m Not In A Competition With Anyone — Harrysong

Nigerian musician, Harrison Tare Okiri, better known as Harrysong has said he’s not in the country’s musical space for competitions with anyone.

Harrysong made this known in an interview with Sunday Scoop, where he spoke extensively about Nigeria’s musical industry.

In his words, the Delta-born musician said: “Everyone is the king of their castle. Artists such as Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid work really hard to maintain their prime position.

“However, it is not that every other person is not working hard. But, as far as I’m concerned, I am not here to compete with anyone. If one has the spirit of competition, I don’t think one will be able to ‘beat’ it.

“It is important to always pay compliments to people who are doing well. If one congratulates them on their successes, one is also tapping into their grace. There is no need for envy or jealousy.

“The way I see it; when one person wins, it is a win for everyone. For example, when Burna Boy won the Grammy Award, he brought glory to Africa, not just Nigeria.”

Speaking on his plans for 2023, he said, “I am working on my album, which is titled, God Amongst Men. I can assure my fans that they will hear new sounds because the music is changing. I will give them what they love.”

The artist further asserted that Afrobeat music could never be ignored on the international stage, saying: “Afrobeats cannot go off the map. It is impossible. Nigeria remains the giant.”
