One of the major issues many entertainers, especially newbies have faced is maintaining their relevancy in the long run, However, It is not surprising that the inability of many artists to respond to trends including negative ones.
Trends are what make an artist relevant and you can see that from observing popular artists.
To understand this situation better, Afri Okay had a session with a popular brand manager and a key figure in the Ice Nations Record Label, Bros Effizy.
During the interview, Bro Effizy further emphasizes that as an entertainer you will stay relevant for a very long time if you constantly upgrade yourself and understand how to positively move with trends.
He further explains that not all trends will impact you positively, most celebrities loses their fan each time they engage in a negative trend, Davido Wizkid Burna Boy understands the importance of trends so well and they are making good use of social media and what the fans want.

Another method is to build a positive relationship with your fanbase and ensure you support them no matter what. If you want to trend, then your fanbase must be solid.
Linking up with other artists also help you to trend. Nevertheless, you should know that this is another tricky one and must be clearly defined.
