Gospel Artistes Shouldn’t Shoot Music Video For Worship Songs – Nana Kofi Asihene

nana-asihene (1)

Nana Kofi Asihene, a music video director and creative consultant, has said that artistes should be careful about the type of songs they shoot videos for.

According to him, worship songs don’t need music videos.

He said on ‘The Chat’ on Citi TV that most musicians do not know the business and marketing aspects of their career so they do things anyhow.

“I tell gospel artistes; they bring you a song it is six minutes and I tell them to cut the songs short. Because nobody will sit and watch [a video for] six minutes. And the amount of money you need to sustain interest on screen for six minutes is long,” he said.

Don’t shoot a video if it is a worship song. Play it at down; that is when people like it. Don’t worry about a music video because you’ll just be wasting your money,” Nana Asihene added.

He made this comment during a discussion on the importance of videos in music promotion.

This comes on the back of Shatta Wale’s assertion that it is not worth it for Ghanaian musicians to shoot expensive music videos for their songs.

Joe-Mettle

Joe Mettle has expressed worry over the wanton display of unprofessionalism on the part of some people in the media.

He told Andy Dosty in a recent interview on Hitz FM that some media people who peddle falsehood about celebrities, do not even bother to correct their stories or retract after finding out they have goofed.

He said the attitude of writing untrue stories about people in showbiz drags them back.

According to him, he even lost a gig because of some negative stories that were written about him and his family.

“Even me, it’s happened to me before. There was an event like that and at that time there were rumours of things about my family. And the people, based on some of these rumours started making excuses. They didn’t say no, but they didn’t come back,” he noted.

The ‘Ye Bua Mi’ singer said some people hide in the name of showbiz, to ruin people’s brand.

According to him, after doing all this, they turn around to say the musicians are not making strides with their music.

Love is best appreciated by the undeserving – Ps. Amos Kevin-Annan

IlQoTZuD_400x400

Counsellor, Consultant and Inspirational speaker, Amos Kevin-Annan, has asserted that love is best appreciated by the people who seem or happen to deserve it the least.

Speaking on the Springboard Hangout Show which is hosted by Comfort Ocran on eTV Ghana, he reported that often times in our mind, when we relate to people, we may feel that they are undeserving of our love and therefore, we deny them that.

He advised against this and said, “We must come to a point of appreciating the fact that loving one another is actually a human trait because to that extent, you’re going to dignify them in how you speak to them, how you conduct yourself around them and how you validate or invalidate them”.

According to the counsellor, if we invalidate another person, we end up dehumanizing them but when we validate them, then we elevate them to the status in which we find ourselves. By so doing, “the maxim of love your neighbor as yourself begins to find expression in what you’re doing”.

Pastor Kevin-Annan emphasized on the importance of seeing people as our equals and loving them as we love themselves because on his accord, we only get treated how we treat people and if we love others, then we will not treat them as we do not want to be treated.

He concluded that simply seeing others as our equal makes us heed two strong advises from the Bible that say “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Do unto others as you want others to do unto you”.
