Ghana’s Music industry has seen the rise and fall of many talents, and each comes with a peculiar experience.
Pundits on many occasions have chastised the performing art for underinvestment in their craft.
Rising songstress Tina Brown Africa has shared some thoughts about what the up-and-coming artiste has to endure to feed his growing fans without a helping hand; a record label.
Tina Brown Africa writes??????
“Being an upcoming artiste is not an easy task, bcos being a musician really entails a lot: Writing sensible songs, getting a professional studio and producer to produce the track, getting costumes for photoshoots and video shoots, professional artworks, bloggers to promote the song on pupular sites, radio and tv stations to help you with the exposure and whole lot more.
What i have noticed after few years of my experience in the music industry is that, no one is willing to help unless they see you have reached a certain level.
It doesnt really matter whether you have the talent or not, its about whether you have the money or not. And so I wrote my new debut song ‘#Boa Nipa’ basing on this experience and then generalised it to preach to the world to support one another not because of what they have but because they have to. Nobody knows what tomoro holds“
