Prolific juju musician, Semion Olatunde Atilola popularly known as SOA has admitted that Juju genre of Yoruba music is no longer enjoying the needed promotion like it was in the past.
SOA said unlike in the hey days of musicians like Sunny Ade, Ebenezer Obey, IK Dairo and Dele Abiodun, Juju music does not enjoy premium promotion, both on the media and off the media.
SOA was speaking during the unveiling of plans for his 20th year on stage celebration which he said will be commemorated with the launch of his latest album.
The juju musician said all efforts by contemporary juju musicians must be commended but there was need to do more.
According to SOA, the 20 years on stage celebration and album launch is another attempt in the effort of bringing juju music into the consciousness of fun-lovers and to draw attention of traditional media like Lagos Television to the beautiful genre. He said that was the reason he decided to host the event at the premises of Lagos Television.
The event is scheduled to hold on Sunday 13th October 2019 at the Combo Hall of Lagos Television LTV starting from 1pm
