Djs Could Play Songs From Upcoming Artists In The Night : – Icebox
A Ghanaian upcoming Hip Hop artist; and head of the B.O. Society had something to share with presenters a Djs in Ghana. According to him, this should be the best way upcoming artists can feel supported and to encourage them to do even more and work harder. below is his “plea” to all Djs Nationwide…
“I have an issue and I need to tell the heads of the DJing Industry if there’s one. Our djs play these foreign songs; Hip-hop, RnB, Pop, etc and we all know that none of them artistes abroad pays them any payola. And these songs are mostly played at night. This is what I am suggesting, we have upcoming artistes who also do songs like these (Hip-hop, RnB, Pop, etc) and do them pretty good so it would be only fair if at nights, instead of playing their (foreign artistes) songs you play the songs from your own upcoming artistes who also are part of the music industry whether you agree or not. Everyone was once an upcoming artiste. This would be a great opportunity for every upcoming artistes in the country.
All these songs you play from the foreign artistes, you download them so we can make it happen here too. A group can be created on facebook and all upcoming artistes who have songs that can be played on air can post them there. Or we can also appoint someone who will check if these songs are airplay friendly or not. This might be a lotta work but since you have the passion to be a dj, it shouldn’t be so hard and every great establishment takes time, patience, hard work, perseverance, etc.
So to all the Bloggers reading this, if you think this is a great idea, then please write an article about this and publish and let’s get the attention of the heads of the DJing Industry and the DJs… And to everyone reading this, don’t forget to tag anyone who needs to know about this. Peace!! – King B.O”
