Terri Ryn one of Nigerian's hottest prospects in the music industry full of promises for the future but all of a sudden we just can't figure out why he is yet to drop any new single. The Question is - Where Is Starboy Terri? Is this the end of a promising talent?

The talent singer shocked the worldwide when he was discovered by Starboy boss Wizkid few years back and he was featured on the label's joint single 'Soco' which since then we did couple of great records like his first single 'Bia'.

Questions are being asked by fans - Where is Terri? Well the last time we heard from him was a joint track with fast raising afro fusion songstress GoodGirl LA titled 'Talo Lomo' and ever since then we heard nothing from the singer.

He may have succeeded in disappearing into tin air for sometime now and it been too long for such promising talent to just go off without a feature or self made single which has caused many eyebrows being raising and questions circulating weather we've heard the last from him.

Terri has failed to be that star we all thought he would be after getting signed to Wizkid’s label which I believe for sure is one big opportunity for any upcoming artiste that wants to make it big but funny enough no one gets really why he was signed to Wizkid’s Starboy Record label.

Since Wizkid flagged off the record label we have seen multiple acts from producers to singers and rapper and the list continue to grow, with more additions and exits in quick succession.

Talking about the likes of Maleek Berry, Efya, Mr Eazi, Legendury Beatz, R2bees, Willybang (Silly), L.A.X and so on, we understand that the case of Starboy Terri who is the main focus of this content is quite different from others.

2018 post-2019 was a very good year which many music talents we're discover and we can go on and naming so many of them but this isn't about them but for the sake of placing Terri in same category we have to list the likes of Rema, Crayon, Joeboy, Fireboy DML alongside others who were discovered in the same duration.

Like y'all know those names mentioned had already dropped something for the year 2020 if not one single maybe more and some planning to drop an EP/Album soon.

Remember the Starboy singer came out on his social media to announce his body of work EP dubbed 'AfroSeries' in March this year but hold on! We in April and we are still waiting for Terri but nothing yet.

This made us to wonder what is really going on with Starboy's Terri? Is The The End? Is Wizkid holding him back? Has be been dropped by the label? According to some reports, we saw people advised Terri to leave Starboy Entertainment and we ask ourselves why?

If we remembered how the LAX and Wizkid issued played out we might arguably point fingers and say maybe Wizkid is the problem to Terri being going off the music radar for so long, but what do we know? Let just see as it plays out.

Please Just Take A Look At 3 Evidence We Pulled Out:

1: “ Bia ” didn’t last a week before WizKid decided to drop “ Fever ”. The video which features “Tiwa Savage” further drifted attention from the track and everyone eventually forgot about it.

2: Another one was with his 2019 song “ On Me ” which was released the same day Larry Gaaga dropped the hit track “ Low” featuring with WizKid and this was Wizkid’s first track after a long hiatus so definitely everyone wanted to heard the real Starboy, which So again, Terri was nowhere to be found.

3: Terri showed signs of doing wonders again after the failure of “On Me” with the release of “ Non-Stop ” and this particular track was dope but little did he know that something much bigger was about to hit his way and stop his shine, Wizkid’s collaboration with Beyonce ‘ Brown Skin Girl ‘ which was massive for him and the whole of Africa.

Aside from releasing songs during the same period as Terri, Wizkid is not doing enough in promoting this young talent and he rather prefer hiding him than putting him out there fully for everyone to meet and know his worth.

To cut all the long story short we think Wizkid is the culprit to Terri's absent from the music scene for a very long period of time which we all know it should be so because the likes of Rema, Joeboy, Fireboy DML and also has been doing much more.

Terri Ryn is a bundle of raw talent waiting to be heard by the world If you actually listened to his debut single “BIA” you would understand how talented he is.

So We Keep Asking Until We Hear From Starboy Terri – Where Is He? Is This The End Of A Promising Talent?
