Joey opined that the concept of poor people breaking into fame and limelight through music in Nigeria is a well believed myth. 

According to Joe, to make it in the Nigerian music scene, one ought to have lots of money or have someone who is ready to spend lots of money to push their music.

Joey Akan’s tweet reads; 

Once again, stop allowing people you. The concept of a poor person breaking into the music stardom is a myth. Everyone you see who breaks through, and becomes a star, either has plenty money or has someone spending plenty money. Poor, broke artists don't blow anymore. see people peddling the misconception that talent will blow you in this game. That's fat lie. The Nigerian music industry will only acknowledge your talent, if you have the funding to push that talent. Without that, nobody send your papa. Nobody go pick your call sef.

A poor person without a sponsor can't pay for photoshoots, payola, marketing, and PR. Na to dey beg up and down for favours, in this economy. Anyone with a piece of music real estate in this country, has put a price on it. Pay up or get out and get shut out of your dreams.
