Rufftown record CEO Rikky Nana Agyemang popularly known as Bullet has said that artistes need to have hit songs to stay relevant in the music industry.
Bullet is one of those managers who have gained a reputation for making stars out of anyone. in just a year of signing on the late singer, Ebony, he made her into one of the biggest musicians in Ghana, churning out hit after hit and culminating in her being crowned Artiste of the Year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) posthumously last year.
The former Ruff N Smooth music group member, Bullet has done it again, this time with singer Wendy Shay, who he signed while Ebony was alive. A year after he introduced her, Wendy Shay has become a household name, collaborating with the likes of Shatta Wale and Sarkodie and mounting big platforms.
She recently won New Artiste of the Year at the 2019 VGMAs.
“The industry we have is all about relevance and it means you should not take churning out hits songs for granted. You have to be on top of your issues when it comes to songs.
“You can do all that you want to, build whatever you want to build but if you do not have hit songs, trust me, you will feel less important in the industry. That is why for us we do not joke with the kind of music we bring out.”
In an answer to the process the songs his artistes churn out goes through, Bullet said, “we do not just get up and release songs, we have those who have an ear for good tunes who listen to them. It’s a big game altogether, the team does a lot of work and consultation etc.” Bullet told Showbiz in an interview.
