Current Musicians Are Lazy- Kojo Antwi
Ghanaian Afropop and reggae act, Kojo Antwi, also known as the ‘Lady’s Man’, has said music is more than the ‘baby move your waist’ being done by some artistes in the present dispensation.
According to him, some upcoming musicians are lazy due to technology and some musicians are only doing ‘cut and paste’ music and have failed to do quality music.
He told Rainbow FM, “If the devil wants to use music negatively, that is when music becomes an object that you sing about nothing but baby move your waist, baby shake for me and that entire thing.
“Music is more than that.
“Technology has made it easy to record so some musicians are being lazy.
“Some are doing cut and paste; they do not want to learn the rudiments of music.
“Some presenters have formed a league and only playing songs from particular musicians.
“When you pick an album from my generation, is not just the music; the art work that covers the music on the album, the content and recognition adds to it.
“But now we live in a world where musicians are only interested in quantity and not the quality.
“It is not about the quality any more but the quantity and that is where my worry is.
“The Western world sees music as a product and to them, music means gift of life.
“Music plays a more important role and a gift to the world like food, water and air,” the ‘Adiepena’ hit maker added.
