Emerging According to Nigerian rapper Bad Boy Timz, whose real name is Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin, musicians cannot make their living only from music streams.

He made this revelation in a recent interview with Hip TV, emphasizing that stream revenue does not give musicians a big income.

According to Badboy Timz, a lot of musicians use the money they get from online streaming to promote their songs. He clarified that he earns money by taking frequent vacations, and he advised his colleagues to follow suit.

The singer said: “As an artiste you cannot depend on music streams because it is not substantial. Most of the earnings from music streams are reinvested on promotion.

“So, what I do is go on tours. I’m always trying to get Visas to tour different countries. I have been touring for over a year now. So I advised my colleagues to make more money from shows and seek sponsorships.”
