One of Ghana’s music guru’s, Felix Lambert known in music circles as Dagaow has in an interview thrown some shots at his colleague musicians cautioning them to put an end to the hypocritical act of always pretending to love each other whiles their hearts tells differnt stories.
The musician in an interview with flex newspaper lamented that, it is worrying how hatred in the industry keeps pulling down the creativity of individuals and yet, musicians especially the A-LIST artistes will always pretend to have the kingdom of God being established on their hearts when performing together on stage but, it’s a different game when they go back stage, an act he sees devastating and retards the growth of the industry.
” It is funny especially among and between the A- LIST artistes and the unpopular acts. Lets look at at it from the big artistes point of view, everybody wants to be known as the boss and rule over everybody. Though it is very good for us to be competitive, we always forget that, together we stand and divided we fall and you will always fall alone when you are up there alone”.
“In this industry,one will need the help of another to excel, just a mere phone call by a fellow colleague can do you the magic to even winning a BET award. It doesn’t matter what the person does or who he is but what do we see today? selfish and greed has been the order of the day where a musician will rather die than to create that link for his fellow musician to excel”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6m783s35pI4
He continued to narrate that, most of the musicians are very good at acting to love each other when performimg on stage but, it is rather funny how they treat each other when they go back stage;
“When we are back stage, it is different thing all together, we come on stage we jump and hug each other but inwardly, it always looks like competing with people from different planet, everybody will be at his or her corner trying to show flex to his or her colleague artistes. Talk to an artiste back stage and they will behave like they have never met or seen you before, even if you don’t know me, the mere fact of me trying to socialise with you should only tell you to be nice to me or give me some possitive responds”.
“When i was in U.K during one of my international performances, it was amazing how artistes related to each other back stage. After an artiste is done performing and comes back stage, all the artistes will go to him to congratulate him or her not caring much of your race or where you are coming from, this makes you feel at home. Why can’t we do same in Ghana?” He asked.
The musician cum journalist again added that, some of the A-LIST artistes don’t want to associate or have anything to do with the unpopular artistes;
“When an A-LIST artiste is on stage performing, he would want to perform all of his songs not considering an opportunity to some of the unpopular ones to shine. Meanwhile, this big artiste have been on that platform on several occassions and might not need that particular stage for anything, it is our wish to see some of these big acts come to us and encourage or motivate us that we are on the right course but it is never so in this industry”.
“How amazing will it be for Shatta Wale to join me on stage whiiles performing just for his fans to associate with me. This behaviour is affecting our industry and it is evident in Stonebwoy’s current BET nomination awards, how many artistes have come out openely to congratulate him on his nomination? One thing we should know as a country is that, Stonebwoy is no longer for himself but representing the entire country. I know many artistes who are making it big now have in one way or the other been through some challenges where they were denied help when needed most and hence, they still have that bitterness in them which always deters them from helping others which shouldn’t be so. The fact that you have been through it all doesn’t mean you should allow others go through same ordeal whiles you have what it takes to help them, having your name being mentioned by another artiste for being the force behind his or her success is on its own a big plus than the artiste thanking you with cars etc”.
Dagaow also mentioned Guru as one musician who is much concerned about the well being of the underground;
“One name that needs to be mentioned and commended is musician Guru. When Guru released his LAPAZ TOYOTA hit single, he featured two unnpopular artistes, it was the same Guru who brought Singlet and Mac Wonder out. I don’t know which year Guru will release a single without featuring an underground and we encourage other big musicians to do same” he had stated.
He again mentioned Shatta Wale as one who haven’t done much as far as supporting the underground is concerned;
“Shatta Wale is one musician who haven’t done much to support the underground artistes, had it not been his recent signing of these joint 77 guys, who has hehelped? If Shatta Wale out of every three songs he does will feature even one unpopular artistes, imagine the number of musicians who will owe their celebrity life to him( Shatta Wale) but no, he is rather doing the opposite.
Dagaow is current out with his latest banger ‘CHECK POINT’ and features Zeal of VVIP fame. The song which was produced by Ronnie Turn Me Up is an Afro-pop tune is which already making all the necessary waves there is to make on the internet. Music aficionados have adjudged the song as one of the best timeless songs ever to be recorded.
The singer and composer of the song Dagaow aside his smoothing voice has been in the industry for the past ten years and hence, he is always on top of whatever he does as for as music is concerned, the video however is ready and will soon be shown on various television network.
