Choirmaster says some Ghanaian musicians are lazy

Musician, Choirmaster, has said that some Ghanaian artistes are lazy.

Making a submission on whether or not the industry is flooded with more substandard songs, the former member of the defunct Praye music group stated that most musicians of late are in a hurry to release songs and therefore spend little time to record and evaluate their works.

This he believes has affected the quality of songs released onto the market.

“There are so many disposable music now. The life span isn’t long because we hardly produce songs with good content. Now, people thrive on terms and hooks. We need to take our time and work on the songs before they come out,” he said on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz.

When show host, Black Eye asked if that is a sign of laziness, Choirmaster, formerly known as Praye Honeho responded in the affirmative.

A number of industry watchers have raised concerns about the kind of songs released onto the market. Some have argued that most content-filled songs do not get airplay because most disc jockeys (DJs) are interested in party songs. Others have also argued that a chunk number of musicians of this generation have refused to learn the rudiments of music – a situation which has accounted for the rise in low quality of songs.
