Talking about the need for the creative arts space to receive more attention, Epixode said if not for music, Nigerian would’ve been known for sakawa or fraudulent activities.
“Nigeria have been able to change the narrative from being a 419 country to the best country in the world right now when music is mentioned,” he remarked.
He continued, “And five years ago when you type Nigeria on google what you’d get is sakawa or 419 but now it’s music”.
