Legendary Nigerian music producer, Don Jazzy, and ace songstress, Simi, have taken to their individual verified Instagram pages to advise budding artistes on how they can use their social media accounts to boost their careers.
The artistes stated that budding musicians have to use their social media accounts to promote their crafts.

Taking to her Instagram story, Simi said, You a “serious” growing artiste and you have only three posts on your page. A picture of the sunset, one of an aeroplane and one of your shoes. Caption- Lost, but don’t find me. Nothing with your music in it. That is not a great look. If you want it bad, bad; always be selling yourself. Leave the mysterious shit for when you have won! Even then, still leave.” (sic)
To buttress Simi’s point, Don Jazzy further stated that ‘fake deep mysterious aesthetic’ on social media tampers with the growth of budding artistes.
He said, “I tell y’all this all time. Hear it from your fellow artists too. All that fake deep mysterious aesthetic is tampering with your ops. Besides, if you show the algorithm that you want to be dark, mysterious and left alone, it will make sure you are in the darkest part of the gram where no one will see you. How then will you get discovered?” (sic)
