    See international body ranking is different cos they use facts nd figures , so forget those slay nama that call themselves musician. Hun… international talented musicians are different from dressing up to impress anyone.. wd are talking about real talent here. Not despirados that want to use money nd fashion to hijack Real Talent..You see in abroad.. it is different because no bribery nd no rich Sugar Daddy to come nd bribe for you to be at the top.. hun.its strictly talent.. the song you may not like here is positively making waves in obodo oyinbo. Period !
