Award-winning Ghanaian rapper Elorm Adablah, known widely as EL has opined about things musicians do to grab attention for themselves and increase their numbers.

According to the ‘Koko’ crooner, musicians rely on lies such as bragging about their outfits, what they have and others for attention and to increase their numbers.

Speaking in an exclusive interview on Accra-based Luv Fm, EL noted that it depends on how well the artist leverages this strategy to tell whether it will be good for them or not.

“Musicians, we talk about things that we wear, we talk for the numbers, we just talk about different things…it’s for the numbers and the attention, so depending on how you do it, whether it’s a good or bad idea, it’s up to you as an artist,” he said.

EL continued, “Music is an attention-based game and publicity is what an artist goes out there to look for. If you want to be in the business side of it, that’s definitely what to do. I might be saying too much but there’s definitely an aspect of it that you have to go out there to look for.”

This comes a few days after EL confessed to having lied about his supposed delivery job in the United States for attention.

According to his interview with Accra-based Hitz FM’s Andy Dosty, the statement he made while speaking to Accra-based 3Music Network earlier this year, was influenced by his team and was purposely to announce his return after a long stay abroad.
