Ghanaian producer, Mr. Appiah Dankwa known in showbiz cycles as Appietus advised musicians not to rely on hit songs.
Furthermore, he states that they shouldn’t rely on hit songs in order to stay relevant. However, they should venture in activities that will keep them relevant in society.
Appietus on other ventures and hit songs
“You always need a hit to become relevant but you can stay relevant without a hit after you are known; now you are known so you can do other things to stay relevant, there are a lot of artistes who are doing a lot of projects that keep them in the eye of the public”.
Moreover, according to the sound engineer, having hit songs keeps musicians in the spotlight. However, in the absence of such, artistes can embark on various projects. These will put them in the spotlight and always have people talk about them.
He said this in reactions to comment made by Gospel artiste Cwesi Oteng.
However, the award winning producer thinks artistes should combine several other things to their music career in order to make significant impact. He wants artistes to emulate the example of Okyeame Kwame and others who he says are still relevant despite not having hit songs.
