Be smart, there’s money in the industry – Guiltybeatz to producers

Music producer Guilty Beatz, born Ronald Banful, is urging fellow producers to have a split sheet that earns them money after producing for artistes.

Speaking in an interview with Lexis Bill on Drive Time on Joy FM, Guilty “Know who you’re producing for. You want to make sure before the song comes out, you have your percentages down before distribution begins,”.

He told Lexis Bill, host of the Show that getting paid by the artiste for a work done is not enough to sustain a producer.

Guilty Beatz stated, “even if the song makes 100,000 streams online, there is some money coming from somewhere and your name needs to be part of it.”

He revealed producers usually take 50% of streaming shares and sometimes 25% when there are two of them.

He explained that it is because artiste gain money from live shows, brand sponsorships, and others, unlike producers whose only source of income is from production.

The ‘Akwaaba; hitmaker said, “as a producer, you own some rights to the song, make sure you get it even if it’s one cedi.”

Guilty Beatz stated the only streaming systems have helped not only artiste but producers to make money “you just have to be smart about it.”
