‘I Am Not An Upcoming Artiste’ – Korede Bello

Posted by Jim Donnett on March 4, 2015 in News · 59 Comments


Korede-Bello

Mavin’s last born, Korede Bello has expressed his utter dissatisfaction with the labeling ‘upcoming artiste’. Bello who is not new to the industry had been doing the toil till it paid off last year when he got activated to the Supreme Mavin Dynasty by the leader of their pack, Don Jazzy. Since then, he has experienced a significant growth having featured on songs like Dorobucci and Adaobi as well as releasing his singles African Princess, Cold Outside and God-Win especially that stirred a frenzy on the airwaves.

Bello was recently with a rep of The Nation, and he had this to say.

“When somebody goes to school and is in primary one, will you call the person upcoming student? Or when you just get a job in the bank will you be called an upcoming banker? But for me I will say people are entitled to whatever title they choose to give artistes, but it depends on the artiste; ‘how you see yourself.’ I see myself as a musician, I see myself as a mega super star and that is all that matters. I will advise artistes not to go along with that upcoming title because you might just remain upcoming forever. So you had better see yourself as a musician and a servant to humanity. Is there upcoming pastor? If there is none, why upcoming artiste?”

I’m of the opinion that he’s made his point but he most of all, should understand the context being referred to when it is used.

  1. Young man keep quiet!! There are A-list naija celebs ryt about nw who passed thru dis same route ur in nw so work hard n mk a name for urself simple! U neva evn win any award yet u de talk..uv started on a good note so continue and dnt relent. God bless

    • lol……….wen u pple don’t knw sumtin , den u keep quiet….who told u he as nt won any award……….u beta do ur findings very well b4 u start broadcasting nonsense

  2. You’ve got a point dude

  3. I think is bello is not an upcoming, he as don so many song b4 God, help him, he did a song with danny d newman. Phone number as in the song was very ok, and I don’t no why the song was not. Promoted

  4. I like dt my man@korede Bello.I hate that sentence’up coming artist,am an artist but I hate that name wen people call me up coming artist,I alway tell dem am a star in making@menoblackmusic

    • See, the word upcoming is an adjective not a noun. Whether d both of U like it or not, U are upcoming. Settled.

  5. Dis guy don start again. bt keep it up, God go bless u with more voices.

  6. Upcoming artists! This is a category where a number
    of our local acts fall but they are good at referring to
    themselves as new artists.
    By definition, ‘Upcoming’ is anything going to happen
    soon. As a new artist, one expects to make it big in
    the industry but this stage is inescapable. Upcoming
    musicians are those singers that are no longer new
    because they have been around for some time and
    promising to make it big. New and upcoming have so
    much in common though they also differ in some
    ways.

  7. Meanwhile, he do not believe himself then, why should he be upcoming forever? Being upcoming forever is when you don’t have talent… Bello is being talking proudly of himself, he said the other time that his account was bigger, he’s still kidding bcoz’ even while Don Jazzy was getting small small money then he never said that talkless of Bello of yesterday. Tell him to chill.. He is giving me discourageous of his music now! He should try to focus.

  8. Just shot up n focus on your career. B4 u go begin dy tlk anyhw, u r not yet the d star u tink u r. N leme remind u dat z nt been very lng (phyno) graduated 4rum an upcumin 2 a full grown artist n dats wot I call super star, n u’v nt made half of d fame he made 4 himself n here claiming 2 b (MEGA SUPER STAR) boi no dy tlk 2much n focus. Al d same God bless.

    • see… whether u like it or not korede bello is already a star, so stop hating.

  9. nice one Mega super

  10. If U like speak grammer frm now til Christ comes, U stil be upcoming….

    • if u re in christ, u will understand wat korede is talking about, try and see with ur spiritual eyes and stop thinking like d way d world thinks.

  11. upcoming is a better tag, it means u ve nt gotten to your peak. But if he prefer super star tag, that means this is d best he can offer.

  12. bro keep it up God bless ya

  13. Obviously, this guy is blessed with an upcoming brain….

  16. Most times in life we ought to aim high, so as to be great achievers and most times people speak in parable and it is only the few that are CHOSEN will understand coz as we all know, many are CALLED but few are CHOSEN. It is only people with the wisdom of ABOVE and not the wisdom of the WORLD that will understand what Bello is talking about. Bello may your SUCCESS work according to your BELIEVE. You are such a sweetheart
