Afro pop star, Eldee, has denied quitting music following his noted absence from the Nigerian music scene.
Eldee, whose given name is Lanre Dabiri, clarified that he had only made a shift from singing to online digital music management.
The former Trybesmen frontman told the News Agency of Nigeria that even while he was a recording music artist, he had always had a passion for online digital music management and helping artists to get the best of the industry.
“I am not completely absent from the industry,” he said. “My true fans knew of my transition right from the beginning of my transition. I have a computer training background, because I studied computer science as a student and I have always had the plans to delve into online digital music management.”
Eldee said he had to create Playdata platform to expose upcoming musicians to cutting edge technology that would boost the substance of their works.
“The site does many things for the artist, including monitoring how many times your song was played on the radio, reactions from fans and it also gives the artist international recognition,” he said.
He explained that critics should be sure of their facts before delving into issues they are not conversant with.
“I believe that I will contribute more to the industry through my Playdata platform and it will also increase my relevance most that singing,” he said. “I have not completely abandoned singing, it’s on the back burner until my Playdata platform reaches its full potential.”
