One of your favorite Ghanain Highlife musicians Akwaboah has narrates how Some others musicians were using him when it comes to songwriting, according to him, he wrote many songs for people but was not given any loyalty, and it was because he knew nothing about loyalties in music as at that time till Sarkodie sat him down and explained to him how it works. Though he feels cheated but was grateful Sarkodie has rescued him.
The discussion on Simple Showbiz was "The business of songwriting" and it related matters. One of the members of Songwriters Association of Ghana Mr Logic has also complain bitterly for how the musicians are not doing with the association.
This sensitive question "Should all Musicians be songwriters?" No!! But everyone want to write and that's why there are bad songs in the system. He was even threatening to mention names but was disallowed.
Some people can sing but can't write and the same way some can write but can't sing, have to know what your talent is rather than pushing yourself too hard.
He also added that most songs don't go through the due structure of a quality song. Hence if the system is not well oriented Ghana music can never move forward.
