Entertainment is the biggest thing in Nigeria, according to reports, this industry might be taking over every other industry very soon. Little wonder every one is making hay while the sun still shines, fighting for a place in this very large and rich industry.
Surprisingly, while the music Industry is recording the arrival of more stars, some are taking their bows and leaving the industry, swearing never to return.
We have heard severally how the industry is hard, how competitive it is and how only the strong can survive the politics in the industry. Still, many are telling tales of grass to grace after just a short period in the industry.
Well, for those who took their bows, the industry was not fair to them, in their words and they would rather leave than endure or leave room for depression.
