Omar Sterling (Paedae) and Mugeez of R2Bees in latest interview has revealed they are not difficult but rather principled when it comes to doing business in Ghana’s music scene.

“When we came into the industry in 2008, it was not that perfect but I believed it’s changed a lot.

Paedae said; “Anyone who has followed the industry from way back, the approach was a total joke, from the artiste, promoters, to everybody running the industry. Artist don’t know they are taking for granted. One day I was on radio around the time they disqualified Ajei from the Ghana Music Awards because of some lyrics Obidi used talking about the way the song was disqualified.

“And I remember, the approach to the whole thing was a joke and artist didn’t know they had that power to change things, if a promoter comes to call you an artist to perform, nobody comes to watch stage or lighting or how beautiful the setup is, they come because of the artists on the bill but the promoters deal with the artistes as if we are not even important.

Sometimes others even go as far as telling you how expensive their logistics is and I tell them, ‘I don’t care about the stage, nobody will leave their house to come watch the stage. So deal with the artist with respect.”

Currently promoting their Gboza single featuring Davido, the Refuse To Be Broke Nation artist continued;

“We have a serious problem with Charterhouse, you see what Shatta Wale did with them, we did same but in more diplomatic way. Most of our songs were disqualified, I Dey Mad, Kiss Your Hand and Ajei never won an award. We were really vexed. We don’t really care about the awards because where we are from, we have been too hungry to care about plastics. But at the same time it was obvious we deserved the recognition. If you are against a bigger organization, you will get the reputation of being too difficult or disrespectful and that is our story.

We are principled. Ask Bola Ray, we worked for a long time and we always go by the principles. There are people who work with Charterhouse and other companies, they kissed feet and they are nowhere to be found now. Their brands died. But we have been here with our principles and they call us difficult and we are still here.”
