Kwaw Kese might just not take this lightly as this news comes from a well respected radio presenter based in the Garden City, Kumasi whom Kwaw Kese has been a close friend to, cherished and respected all along.
Speaking on Kumasi based radio Kessben 93.3 fm in an interview which sought Franky Taylor’s view on current trends of music promotion by music artists and their relations with radio presenters and DJs, the host of African Express on Fox 97.9fm in Kumasi disclosed he felt it was disrespectful for artists to send songs for promotion via whatsapp, ask radio presenters to log on to musical websites to download them or tweet links to download.
Citing a related example of how artists normally respected radio presenters and would do anything to have this songs played, Franky Taylor described how the man of the street, Kwaw Kese used to clean his shoes just to get him play his songs.
“Kwaw Kese would in those days clean and polish my shoes just to get me play his songs so why would an artist ask me to download his songs via whatsapp? That is disrespectful.”
Although he might be right as I share the same opinion as a radio presenter and radio DJ, did he really need to say this to make a point? Well, comments reserved. What do you think?
