Lagos – The Chief Executive Officer of Greenland Music Productions, Wale Adesanya, on Monday urged musicians to stick to originality in their works in order to distinguish themselves.
Adesanya in Lagos said that many musicians lost uniqueness because they were in a hurry to come out with their albums.
“People would t listen and dance to your song if it is good and original,” Adesanya said.
He said that there were many talents in the music industry and that originality would distinguish any musician.
“If you are original, one day, somebody will pick you out because music is a universal language which will always show someone’s creative ability.
“As far as you can express that language well enough through music, people will listen and note it,” he said.
Adesanya, however, expressed delight at the efforts of some musicians to include African rhythm in their music.
“The music we listen to these days is quiet; it may contain a lot of hip-hop but there is an African language infused into it.
“The world is a global village, so even abroad they are infusing African rhythm; that is where music is going to,” he added.
Adesanya urged the musicians to develop themselves through training and retraining as well as entertain constructive criticisms and take to corrections.
“If you don’t train yourself very well you, your music will end up being local champions,” he said. (NAN)
