Lemi Ghariokwu an experienced artist, has fated the lyrical contents of most Nigerian music which he says are very evasive of the realities in our society.

Lemi Ghariokwu on his speech to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos says that poor and shallow lyrical contents were the banes of contemporary Nigerian music. Ghariokwu, a graphic designer, designed up to 29 out of 56 covers of the musical albums produced by Fela Anikulapo.

He said, “Arts; be it music, creative, visual, performing arts, theatre, among others are supposed to play a role in shaping any society philosophically. “Artists are expected to express whatever they come across in the society and hold out solutions to them if they are bad, commend them if they are nice. “Folarin Falana, popularly known as “Falz’’ has rich lyrical contents of circumstances in the society.

His songs are always addressing issues affecting the society.’’ However, Ghariokwu said that the lyrical contents of most Nigeria’s music were about materialism, bum bum, money, buy big house and cars. “Some musician’s plans are just how they will credit the bank accounts of their girl friends with huge sums of money. “It is a very bad moral standard when we are talking about fighting corruption in the society.
