Ghanaian rap Artiste, Strongman has addressed issues concerning him leaving Sarkcess music after two years and some problems signees go through.
In a live interview on the “rise and shine” show of Y FM, Strongman is saying that most at times, the fans are the ones that cause problems for the signees. The signees are not respected and are always seen as ungrateful. He said that fans always want to talk about stuff they know nothing about which hurts the signees.
He explained that by being a signee of a record label, you go through lots of trauma especially when the CEO of the label is a trending artiste with a large fanbase. The rapper in the interview made it clear that in Ghana, there is a perception that signing someone means helping them and that is absolutely wrong. Signing is not help but then it’s rather business. The signee agreed to sign because he knows what he wants and vice versa so when they are done, they are done.
According to Strongman, nobody is supposed to be grateful to anybody because it’s not captured in contracts however as human as we are, we do it out of our own will and respect.
He said that he left Sarkcess Music after a period of two years because there were things he expected that did not happen although he was ok. He further shared little experience that signees pass through some kind of trauma so he even understands what Kelvynboy is going through.
Although some fans are tagging him ungrateful, he stated he will still try to be loyal and respect the brand of Sarkodie.
Strongman adviced that if any up and coming artiste should get signed to a record label, the person should consider getting signed under someone who is not a musician or a veteran musician. He said that the person should not consider signing under an active musician with an active brand and fanbase because most at times, signees are not respected in Ghana.
