One of the prolific songwriters, singers and music producers in Ghana, Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah , signed to Sarkcess Music has without any fear said that Ghanaian musicians should take their time to produce good songs, but shouldn’t rush to get hit songs that can’t stand the test of time.
In an interview with www.speedmusicgh.com, Akwaboah said good music takes time in terms of production, but it will also last long with the people even when you are no more, so that’s why he is taking his time to do a good song that will speak to the soul and also project Ghanaian music to the world.
Akwaboah is on the same page with some old musicians who think the current crop of artistes don’t do good songs that will last long and can promote Ghana as it should be. He believes the current crop of songs is of low content.
“Some of the songs we have out there are out of low standard. But some of them are of quality and projecting Ghana to the world.
Akwaboah is also looking forward to releasing his first album under Sarkcess Music titled ‘matters of the heart’. It talks about love, relationship and issues facing people in the societies. He believes this album will have impact in the music industry both local and international.
Akwaboah, has written a song for many artistes in Ghana both secular and gospel with names like Becca and ASP Kofi Sarpong. He also had a major influence on Sarkodie’s fourth album, Mary.
He continued to say that Ghanaians should have patience with him not getting a hit song under Sarkcess Music, because no one thinks about his music career more than Sarkodie, so he believes it is just a matter of time and hard work that will on his part.
He further stated that every musician or artiste should not force themselves to be signed by any record label because of money. ‘’Even though they are into business, they should rather think of how helpful the record label will be to their music career and brand.
He quickly added that Ghana music industry is growing but some Ghanaian musicians need to learn to perform live with a band. This effort he believes would make people appreciate Ghanaian music and also help Ghanaian musicians win more awards internationally.
