Reggie Rockstone further explained the effects of not uplifting local artistes.

He told YEN.com.gh how Nigerians have been able to market themselves effectively on the global music market using their media.

Reggie Rockstone said, "I think it's very disheartening. It doesn't encourage the artiste because it seems like your people are clowning you. When would we also boost our artistes?
Because once upon a time, these same Nigerians were looking at us. We were their inspiration. And today, because they take pride in their own and support each other, look at where they have reached now."
