"Those doing this business do not have good offices and equipment to do the jobs. I see them as evil people into the game. There is need for musicians to go into the market, search and supervise to ensure that people are selling the original tapes," he said.

The music director who has directed Old Skoll, you are under control, Abu Ekpere Volume 2 aka Dike amongst others said that music directors face a lot of difficulties especially when they are dealing with a dormant musicians.

The director who has also featured in most of the Nigerian films advised up-coming artists to work hard as God would remember them.

According to him, "they should not relent because it is a rotational thing and they should not fold their hands and expect miracles to happen to them. Let them always make sure that their music is always in the market," he disclosed.

He warned music directors to always buy the idea of their musicians for a sound and perfect jobs because according to him, musicians know what they want.
