Ghanaians Tag Artistes Who Stop Releasing Songs As Old And Past---Screwface Lament
Ghanaian hiplife artiste, Screwface has lamented about how artistes who do not release songs timely are treated.
Speaking in an interview with Grandmaster Murphy on Todays Radio's celebrity hour which was monitored by www.newshuntermag.com, the ‘Maabena’ composer stated that it is not the best for people to conclude that artistes who do not release songs frequently are not fruitful or their time has passed.
He was confused about whether this is limited to Ghana or the African continent.
Screwface laid emphasis on the style which veteran musicians, Amakye Dede and Daddy Lumba use to release their songs.
He explained that they do not rush in releasing songs, but they mostly have hit songs after they come out with new ones.
“It is only in Ghana that people think your time has passed if you relax in releasing new songs. That is the problem…I don’t know if it is with Africans or just my country. When you relax a bit they say your time has passed but look at Amakye Dede, Lumba and others…they stay silent and release one song during November and December and their songs become hit after it has been released,” Screwface averred.
He also bemoaned over how Ghanaians decline to support themselves.
“In every aspect, Ghanaians do not love to push or support ourselves…we love to push the negative side instead of the positive side,” the musician, known in private life as Jehoshaphat Eshun wailed.
“When family comes in, you have to look at the family side, now I have two businesses, the family business and music business, if I mix the two there is going to be a problem.” – He said on his inactiveness in the music scene. “It’s not all about money—there is more to life than money. I have four kids—they come first before my music.”
