President of the Resourceful Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, claims the New VGMA topic tune lacks proper audio good quality, way under the typical of a music supposed to live for the subsequent many years.
“The 1976 recording of the Osibisa ‘Warrior’ tune appears superior than the hottest VGMA song”, he concluded on Showbiz Additional, hosted by Anita Kumah on Luv FM in Kumasi.
He, even so, applauded also Charterhouse for the initiative to compose a new music to raise the facial area of the awards plan, even though the party administration team unsuccessful to seek the advice of him just before composition.
“If you are to pay attention to the similar tune for 20 yrs, you are going to be exhausted, it’s a excellent initiative’, he informed listeners.
Mr Okraku Mantey said he is not the only one particular audio man or woman on the VGMA Board but as a music mogul, he was shocked VGMA to locate out the organisers did not request tips from these new music personalities on the challenge.
“I’d have advised the VGMA not to have applied any common artiste and relatively go for neutral persons with talent whose voices can not even be identified, so we can use this audio to offer whoever”, he lamented.
Charterhouse’s VGMA freshly-composed song titled, ‘Our Music Lives’, was sung by Kidi, Kuami Eugene, TeePhlow, Kwesi Arthur, Joe Mettle, Adina and Amandzeba.
Mr Okraku Mantey cited FIFA Planet Cup 2010 topic music, ‘Waving Flag’, by musician Kanaan, who was not well known but gained fame after the World Cup stressing it would have been ideal to use a not- so- well known artiste who, by way of the VGMA theme track, can attain acceptance and fame.
Drawing from his abundant specialized know-how in audio, he also mentioned it is not ample just to place artistes together to compose a song.
“In music, there are two voices that if you pair you may get a negative sound”, Mr Okraku Mantey tutored, describing the composition of the VGMA theme track as a rushed occupation.
“With a generic music as this, the recording should really have been tight and the audio really should have been timeless. This can’t be a tune which will past for 10 years”, he maintained.
In comparison to late Michael Jackson’s tracks, nicely recorded for certain uses, Mr Okraku Mantey thinks the board can do greater.
“I consider the VGMA Board can do superior than this”, he emphasized.
He is strong in his viewpoint that in the composing a generic track, Charterhouse need to have contacted tunes moguls, seniors and other experts to system anything.
