Put some respect on my name’ – Terry G kicks over comparison with new artistes

Nigerian singer Gabriel Oche Amanyi, popularly known as Terry G, Akpako Master or Ginjah Master has stated that no new street artiste is musically up to his match.

The singer said this on Wednesday while objecting to being compared with up-and-coming colleagues.
In a now-trending post on his official social media handles, Terry G, who felt disrespected by the development, described such a comparison as “a bad match.”

He wrote on the post: “Put some respect on my name.

“Comparisons have to be of equal match; then a better choice is made; comparing me with any new street sensation is a bad match; they can act crazy but not musically on my level on both vocal, playing of instruments, producing multi-platinum hits for several artistes and my catalogue.”

Terry G is widely known for his eccentric dress sense and controversial lyrics. His other monikers are “Akpako Master”, “Ginjah Master”, “Hitman, G.zuz”, and “Terry G.zus”.
Terry G has received several awards for his talent.

A few weeks ago, Terry G expressed disappointment in his colleagues for ignoring him during a challenging period.

He shared his sadness regarding the lack of response from fellow artistes despite his persistent attempts to reach out for support.
Terry G reflected on of their actions, recalling how he had previously been there for them when they sought his help.
Expressing his frustration, Terry G questioned whether it would take his death for them to acknowledge his contributions.

In another post on his Instagram, Terry G announced his retirement from music “for personal reasons”.
The musician thanked his fans for the career-long support he has received.
“I have to say a big thank you to my fans for staying true with me all these years back to back,” Terry G said.

“I really appreciate you all. Thank you so much for the love, I really appreciate.

“I am about to make a big announcement, I know it is going to hurt a lot of people but I have my personal reasons.

“I am quitting music. I no dey do again. I am done and I really appreciate you guys for showing me so much love.”
In 2023, the singer engaged the All Progressives Congress (APC) in an online outburst for allegedly failing to pay him for his campaign performances.

In 2020, he spoke about not landing endorsement deals because a negative image was cast on him.

“I looked like the baddest guy in Nigeria. Endorsement time came, nobody endorsed me. Nobody did anything all that time when Terry G was hot,” he had said.
