Stanley Okorie: I’ve made over 10,000 songs
Popular Nigerian soundtrack composer and singer, Stanley Okorie, says he has made over 10,000 songs in his entire career.
He disclosed this while featuring as a guest on a recent episode of the Osikoya Speaks podcast hosted by Wonu Osikoya.
The ‘Billionaire (onye ji cash)’ crooner said for almost four years, he was making all the music in Nollywood.
He, however, said his success came at a cost as his negligence of his family due to deadlines always pisses his wife off.
Okorie said, “For like four years, I was making all the music in Nollywood. I have made over 10,000 songs.
“It’s a lot. And believe me, it comes at a cost of negligence of some things. You don’t have time for a number of things because you are so focused on your art. You can’t go to birthdays because you have deadlines. You can’t do wedding anniversaries; that one was always pissing my wife off.”
On resurfacing of his classic track ‘Billionaire (onye ji cash)’, the veteran said it shows that “art is immortal.”
He said seeing people dancing on Tiktok to the song he made six years ago is exciting to him.
