According to him, before the industry seeks help from the government or any other organization, creatives must first fix their attitude toward each other.

He told Rev. Erskine on the Y Leaderboard Series, “We need to attend to ourselves. The industry is too fragmented. We need to put the industry together. I have this situation where usually we tend to badmouth people a lot in this industry.

“That is why I keep saying, if we are going to fix the country and we are not going to fix our attitude, we are going to mess up the country when it is fixed. This is because among ourselves we are killing ourselves as musicians and creative arts people. We are too fragmented. So, I think we ourselves need to unite and defragment”.
