Livingstone Etse Stekla added that, upcoming musicians these days don’t know how to show genuine appreciation and selfless honor for the least support given them, yet they expect it all, urging protégés to cultivate a heart full of genuine gratitude that will embolden mainstream musicians to dedicate their career for a better industry.
