Critics of my music aid my career growth — Whitemoney

The winner of the 2021 edition of popular reality show, Big Brother Naija (Shine Ya Eye), Hazel Oyeze, aka Whitemoney, says those who criticise his music are only helping him to succeed.

Addressing critics of his music, Whitemoney told Saturday Beats, “Criticism is good for business. Whenever anyone criticises me, they are helping to put me at the top. I do what I do (music) for fun, and I am a businessman making money. I have however picked some things from some criticisms that have helped me to do better and work on my craft.”

The singer also maintained that before he gets into any romantic relationship, he has to hear from God. He said, “I have not been in any relationship after BBN. Even before the competition, I wasn’t in any relationship. Before one gets into a relationship, one has to hear from God, especially when one is a celebrity. I am a spiritual person. Even if I don’t hear from God directly, I will follow my instincts and investigate the person properly.”

The singer also said that though he made a social media post last week, stating that he had experienced a high level of deceit and unfaithfulness in the past two months, it was based on the experiences of the people around him. He added, “I do not have any personal experience regarding what I posted. I was just sitting in my car and the thought of the deceit and lies some people have experienced in relationships prompted me to make that post.”

Speaking about his business interests, the former BBN housemate said, “I launched an oatmeal last weekend. Later this month, I will also launch my brand of party jollof rice. I am a businessman; I do not just make mouth. After BBN, I have cooked in different countries. I have even been doing private cooking for some families.”

Advising prospective BBN housemates, Whitemoney said, “Whether you are good, bad, toxic, straightforward, bent forward or not forward at all, there will be people who will like you for who you are. Just be yourself.”

Asked if he had any preferred presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 election, he said, “My mouth is sealed regarding that. However, I will announce my candidate next year before the election.”
