Beatmaker and rapper, Jayso, has advised music producers and artistes to engage together for profit sharing arrangement.
Jayso who made an appearance on The Gist with MzGee on Joynews revealed he makes money as a music producer by partnering the artiste he produces since most of them (musicians) are struggling.
“I do more partnerships than taking money to produce music for people. I mean they themselves are struggling so it makes more sense if you are able to partner and make money together,” he said.
According to the producer, cum rapper, young and up and coming producers should look for up and coming acts so they can build and grow together.
Asked if the aforementioned was the situation with Sarkodie, Jayso explained working on the ‘Pizza and Burger’ hitmaker’s first album. ‘Makye’ was not a partnership “it was more of me helping someone that I felt was really, really talented.”
He, however, said Sarkodie’s second album ‘Rapperholic’ was partnered project “because we planned it. There is money in production if you understand the business.”
According to the ‘Skillion’ he is not interested in mounting stages to perform his tunes.
Jayso disclosed he makes money from royalties beyond the shores of Ghana, with the United States being his biggest market.
