The following week, these people would come back and ask for another show, I would tell them to put 30 thousand and they would pay. the shirt and say that I was the guy who turned funk to funk pop. When I recorded my first DVD, in 2011, there was no Anitta, Ludmilla… There was no one. I made funk become an industry , industrialized the genre”, fired the singer.

Naldo also said in an interview with Barba Cast that he helped to increase the funkeiros’ fees when only the sertanejos and the axé singers made a lot of money with shows. He also recalled that he was the first to chart a career in the United States. “In 2008, I was giving interviews saying, ‘I’m going to have a house in Miami, I’m going to make an international career, starting in Miami, for the Latin audience. [que reside por lá]. Anitta followed that”, he commented, who received a lot of criticism from the singer’s fans.

It is worth remembering that the podcast Inteligência Limitada, Anitta’s former manager, Kamilla Fialho, praised the singer. “Naldo has always had a head for pop. He’s a host, he was the one who turned the key. If he hadn’t appeared, maybe Anitta wouldn’t have come in the same package”, she said and Naldo agreed.
