Danny Young revealed during the interview that a lot of the reasons why most old afrobeat artists have are so quick to call out their younger colleagues was because they feel slighted.

He expressed that unlike in the abroad where even old artists are still acknowledged in musical channels and radio stations, in Nigeria old artists are hardly acknowledged. He further disclosed that this type of neglect can breed resentment among them which is why they are always so quick to call out other artists.

Now speaking on Afrobeats music as a whole, he revealed that Nigeria produces a lot more songs besides Afrobeats. He also stated that Nigeria produces Fuji but a lot of people do not even know because there is more spotlight on the Afrobeats scene.
