Veteran actor Patrick Doyle in an interview with Hip TV while explaining the impact of entertainment and pop culture in the people, said the ’30 billion for the account’ slogan is not a good message to pass to the young people.

He explained that singers who are conscious of the message they pass with their music are needed; and that the ‘singer’ (Davido) although not aware might have caused an insatiable want in the minds of the youths which might lead them to engage in desperate measures to have such money.

    Jesu, they must add meaning to everything.
    Get out!
    Poverty is a disease indeed. How much is the 30 billion again?
    PewDiePie makes $15m yearly (5.5 billion naira) from YouTube. Several other people are making billions online just by sitting at home and playing around on the internet. and here we have a supposed old man-adviser speaking from chronic-poverty mentality, Why always refer success to fraud and crime.The new young Nigerians are creative and industrious and are eager to succeed in their endeavors.
    This she-man talks too much.
    Weee Yuuu Qip Kwayettt!

      When we talk of experience, it has to do with number of years and encounter. This man is more experienced than the youths of today, he has seen many generation grow. Those of us who grew up in the 90s knows smoking cigarette w‎as the main deal, but now, codeine is their main thing. It is getting worst from generation to generation. There are people who cannot handle davido song as a positive inspiration ( people like: kidnappers, thieves, prostitute, runs girls..etc) so why u think in ur capacity it is no harm, imagine the others who cannot, the ones who come to traffic like to rob you in your car, in the name that they want to be rich( living fake life).

      So Mr Doyle is right, because from his experience from the 70s, to 80s, to 90s…he has seen the negative impact of what such songs have caused. You may not like what he has said, but picture that the wrong mind who has being impacted negatively by the song attacking you someday. You will understand what he is saying tomorrow when you are no longer young, then u will see it from his view but it is too late to make a change.

      Mr Doyle was once a young man, he has being through the stage u are now. Am a person born in the 90s giving my view.

      @GB: Wow, your comment is unbelievable. If you don’t have commonsense, must you display your folly in a public space like this? I pity your parents and family because you are definitely a disaster waiting to happen. What?

    Very true. It’s sad how materialistic and superficial our society has become.

    It’s not Davido’s responsibility to teach morality to someone else’s child. It’s the responsibility of their respective parents to teach it to them. So keep your big mouth shot. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

      So what role does the society play in training a child in this modern word…I pity a whole lot of you young people, I will never support a young person as a leader, they don’t reason deep

      @ Ganny ….The saying it takes a village to raise a child didn’t come from nowhere. Only the wise understand it. The society has a collective role on checks and balances. Besides not everyone has parents. And it takes more than parents to influence the life of a child.
      It’s youngsters like you than give the decent ones a bad name. If you aspire to leadership and greatness you have the responsibility to be a decent role model. That’s not rocket science work anyone with common sense.

    It is true that Davido ”s 30 Billion can incite people most especially the Young to craze for wealth. But Billions of Dollars is made regularly by people doing legitimate Businesses. Patrick Doyle has a point.

    Mr. Doyle, God shall continue to increase your wisdom. I remember growing up in Nigeria and listening to American Hip-Hop songs. We all wanted to dress, speak and behave like an American despite the fact that we have a better culture. I think anyone that feel offended by what he said has so many issues. Songs and movies influence our lives and decisions too.

  10. Why bother

    June 15, 2017 at 4:08 pm

    Why bother they know everything now! But no need to insult of you don’t have a father or elders at home. There are a few celebs that one can still respect like Patrick and Olujacobs and Joke ! Its easy to complain about the government and state of the country. The people that worship
    Davido and go are as clueless and mannerless as he is so no surprise there. In the next few years when trying to “huzzle” in an even more failed state don’t complain. It takes a village and there are elders in every village.

    Music is spiritual. Fela’s revolutionary music highlighted the discontent of the people. now its 2016 and what we’re seeing is boobs, yansh and cash. we’re waiting for the musicians to wake up to whats on the mind of the peeople. Tekno’s RARA is one of the many to come.

    See as so called well trained peeps open their own yansh in this post? You need not open it instead of cussing the man.
    He has said the truth and this song has even influenced not just youths but adults who are fickle minded.
