Sarkodie arguably does good music & has multiple hits
“Music is business and it is not all about making hits especially in a system where most hits go waste in terms of monetary value; over the years some greedy DJs have collected monies aka Payola from artist that produce useless songs and have played these useless money induced songs to become acceptable by listeners by force so the average listener cannot even tell what a good song is. You watch Music videos on TV and those who can afford are those that do mediocre songs and after a while our people accept mediocrity as perfect and that is where we are today. Most of the songs that our people are accepting as hit songs now are so useless you can’t do anything with it but you can’t blame their sense of judgment after it has been reduced to that level. My point is a bass guitarist in Ivory Coast and a Saxophonist in Senegal is making a lot of money so why can’t we realize that music is business that goes beyond just hit songs. My little advice is keep doing good music so that when you get your dream Hit Song it will not be classified as a useless ‘Hit Song’.” Enock Agyepong, Chief Executive Officer of Speech Productions educated Ghanaians through his Facebook page.
According to the CEO, there is no specific formula to making any hit song, but to be consistent and give the public, “good music”.
