Project Fame’s Bennett Ogbeiwi popularly known as Uncle Ben has talked about learning music and why he is a strict instructor .
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Uncle Ben revealed that people only remember their strict teachers. He also added that he did not learn music in a mediocre style therefore, he strives to always leave his footprints while teaching his students.
“Learning about music is serious education. I am sure you once had a teacher who was mean to you; do you still remember him? I am sure you do. I didn’t learn in a mediocre style.
A lot of people want to be praised for what they didn’t achieve. I won’t allow that. If dignity is not in the industry, there is no way we will have any form of credibility. If you don’t learn properly, there is no way you can excel.
If people think I am mean because I am trying to teach my students, it is okay. But regardless of what people say, I will not change my style. Every time I say I want to leave Project Fame, they beg me to stay.”
