Somali music before and after 1990

I'm not a fan of music generally but why is Somali music before 1990 way way better to listen to than afterwards the moment the Barre dictatorship collapsed? Maybe I personally think music in the 80s anywhere in the world regardless of country or language is better than 21st century music. Perhaps this is to do with the sounds technology and instruments in place.

Somali music in the 60s, 70s and 80s were much better than after 1990 and music collapsed along with the regime

Somali culture died since 1990.

Somalia used to have amazing newspapers, magazines, music, artwork, radio, theatre etc.

Now we have horribly designed Somali news sites with typos, horrible artwork on the side of each building and horrible “plays” that are shown on equally horrible Somali television channels.

Don’t even get me started on the music industry.
