Popular Filmmaker,cum politician, Socrates Sarfo has advised artistes in the music industry to stop attacking the government for lack of support and find ways to save money.
Explaining his point in a recent interview, Socrates Sarfo stated that the success of artistes lies in their own hands and not on government.
Socrates, who was speaking on Peace FM said;
“Sometimes I get irritated when I hear artists say they’re not being supported. What kind of support are you talking of? We don’t owe you any support. That is the reality,” he fumed.
“It’s about time they knew it is business they’re involved in. What kind of support should we offer you? We should carry you on our shoulders to the studio, clean the microphone for you?” he quizzed.
“What has been your game plan since you decided to do music? That is how they should start thinking instead of always crying for support. How do you get the DJ to get the song played? That’s all part of the business. There is a game plan when you want to do business. No DJ owes you that support. They should stop trumpeting the lack of support thing,” he mentioned.
“Get a good business plan, get a good consultant, get good management and you’ll get there. Your management can even tell you per their research, you type of music cannot sell. You don’t record any kind of song and cry for help,” he concluded.
