Recording a hit song is very easy : Sarkodie Reveals

Sarkodie

Ghanaian Rap King, Sarkodie speaking at the launch of the fifth All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) at the Movenpick Hotel in Accra on Monday evening hinted that recording a hit song is an easy thing to do but it is not a sure guarantee that a successful musician will retire from the music industry and live a comfortable life.

According to him, there is more to maintaining a reigning artiste’s status than just recording hit songs. He explained such an artiste also needs to build a large following, record timeless songs and build a lovable brand that will win the hearts of the die-hard fans any day.

He went on to say; “As an artist, my advice for the young ones is that they should focus on building the brand which is the hardest way but the easiest that allows you to relax and … it lets you make money anytime you want… We say we need hit songs which is very easy. People don’t know but hit songs are very easy. You can say something and it hits tomorrow but that doesn’t mean you have a stand in the industry. If hit song is about to save certain people then we have thousands of hits by one person but the person still doesn’t have a stand. So it means the focus should be on building that deep love for your brand from the people. How you do it is individual strategies.” Sarkodie also used the careers of celebrated musicians like Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba, and Kojo Antwi as examples of musicians who have stood the test of time because of their hard work to build the numbers and their brand in Africa.

“They had time to make the music grow on the people and fade into their hearts and focus on the people. Daddy Lumba had a conversation with me in the studio and said we the young ones have one dream which is going to international which is good. But before that what do we do? …We are waiting to be recognized out there to call it a success but we are still losing out on the numbers we have here, which is way more than the numbers of the so-called artists out there that we want to be like,” he added.

He revealed that the last time he checked, Nigerian artistes like Davido and Wizkid had more following than American artist Miguel.

However, Africans are made to think they need to be heard out before they could be called successful “because it is a mind game the rest of the world is doing. They are trying to control what we have termed as the highest key.”

AFRIMA is a platform designed to promote the distinct rich African music worldwide, engaging millions of fans by propelling its music to glorious pinnacles beyond the borders of Africa. This year’s ceremony will be the fifth edition and it was launched in Ghana.

Kuami Eugene

A beef has surfaced within the last 24 hours between “One Corner” hitmaker Patapaa and the Fadama Rockstar, Kuami Eugene.

The beef was triggered by comments made by the Lynx artiste regarding the Patapaa’s music. In an interview on GhOne, Eugene revealed he had been ignoring requests from the Swedru musician to collaborate on a song. He criticised the One Corner innovator saying, “Patapaa’s kind of songs are not me, he makes too much noise”.

This evaluation did not sit well with the Patapaa. To show his disapproval and to affront his contempt, he has released a diss song directed at the “Angela singer”.

The winner of this beef will be determined this Saturday, during the Zylofon Celeb Gala. Patapaa and Kuami Eugene are slated to battle at the Gala. The Gala will be held at the Lizzy Sports Complex, East Legon.

Other celebrities competing in the gala are Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Samini, Patapaa, Kuame Eugene, Wisa Greid, Sammy Flex, Kumi Guitar, Blakk Rasta, Asamoah Gyan, Klala, Jupitar, Baba Spirit, Dada Halfco, Dabo and CEO of Zylofon Group Nana Mensah Appiah.
