I’ve made over 10,000 songs – Stanley Okorie

Stanley Okorie, a legendary Nollywood soundtrack composer and vocalist, claims to have written over 10,000 songs throughout his career.

He revealed this when appearing as a guest on a recent episode of Wonu Osikoya’s Osikoya Speaks podcast.

The ‘Billionaire (onye ji cash)’ crooner said that for nearly four years, he was responsible for all of Nollywood’s music.

He did, however, admit that his achievement came at a cost, as his neglect of his family owing to deadlines often irritates his wife.

“For about four years, I was making all the music in Nollywood,” Okorie explained. I’ve written nearly 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.”

The veteran stated that the reappearance of his iconic track ‘Billionaire (onye ji cash)’ demonstrates that “art is immortal.”

It excites him to watch people dance to a song he wrote six years ago on Tiktok.
