It Is Frustrating Listening To Your Songs Because It Sounds Noisy’ : Efia Odo Jabs Shatta Wale

Published

on

Popular Ghanaian slay queen and television personality, Andrea Owusu also called Efia Odo has penned a lengthy piece of message to her former good friend and Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale regarding his music.

Efia Odo expressed her love for Shatta Wale’s craft and commended him for amazing creativity.

However, Efia Odo cited that she is not impressed by the quality of Shatta Wale’s songs technically.

According to the controversial socialite, Shatta Wale’s songs lacks quality mixing values because he does not invest resources into the technical production of his song making it substandard.

This she revealed produces noise to her ears anytime his music is being played.

Taking to her Twitter page, Efia Odo wrote;

”Hello my dear
@shattawalegh
, my name is Efia. There is a little piece I’d like to bring your attention to it regarding your music. I started paying keen attention to yr craft since the release of your last album. It was a cool project. But I felt you could have done more per..

…your status in the music industry. The only Ghanaian Act with the biggest international collaboration. I love Sarkodie personally, but since that collabo, I’ve actually saluted and respected the feat you’ve achieved and hence the main reason why I began to follow your craft.

Charles @shattawalegh, one very big problem I have with your craft is “production”. You’re very talented, even miles ahead than your colleagues. You could write great lyrics but input zero effort for quality sound. Most of your sounds have poor mixing techniques and often you…

…could hear this unseeming noise like an echo producing in the background. It really frustrates & makes the listener finds it difficult to repeat the song for the second or multiple times. As a music lover, 1 thing I do get attracted to songs is quality production b4 lyrics..

@shattawalegh please we are in an era where people even cherish sounds (quality) more than lyrics and for the genre of music you do, I expect you to pay more attention to your sounds and do away with the unnecessary echo/noise in the background of your songs.

Problem 2, @shattawalegh please do colloborate with your colleagues (both local & Africa or Intern.) I’ve not seen a big artist who don’t collaborate with their peers in the game. Even Jay z, Beyoncé, Kanye West and the likes do collaborate. Collabs expand your listeners and..

…give massive appeal to a wider audience, hence growing your craft in general.
@shattawalegh
you can do this. You have the capacity so please do this for your own good & the people of Ghana.
@Stonebwoyb, &@sarkodie are doing that, and it’s helping them & our country.

Final problem is the “indescriminate releasing of songs” with no proper timing & less effort for promotion. Charles,
@shattawalegh
I’ve realized this has been your thing since, but past times isn’t present times. I learnt you’ve released over 80 songs this year but I know of…

…only “#AkweleTake” and prolly “#SleeplessNight”. The latter, I’m sure isn’t known by many.
@shattawalegh
Charles pls sit down and assess everything I’ve said,& I’d be glad if you consider it & restrategize.”

‘I Had Always Wanted To Have Someone From My State As A Wife’ : Ned Nwoko Further Reveals The Main Reason He Decided To Marry Regina Daniels

Published

on

Before marrying Regina Daniels, none of Ned Nwoko’s wives were from his home state, Delta State.

In a recent interview, he indicated that he was always on the lookout for someone from his state, Delta State, to be his wife.

Meeting Regina who was also from Delta State somehow influenced his decision to settle down with her.

He said“; I liked her when I saw her, especially when I found out that she was from that place. I had always wanted to have somebody (a wife) from my side. We were introduced to each other and one thing led to another. That was when I found out she is a very decent girl. I have always said that I wouldn’t marry anybody who isn’t a virgin and that is very important to me. When I found out that she was a virgin, it reinforced my decision to marry her. I married all my wives as virgins.”
