Enjoyment Pundit, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, has heaped praises on gospel musician Diana Hamilton stressing that she will reign for a life span.
Diana Hamilton, talking in an job interview on Peace FM’s Saturday’s ‘Entertainment Review’, charged her colleague gospel musicians to digitize and monetize their tunes as the entire world of amusement has transitioned from the conventional approaches to the electronic methods of creating funds.
Her remark was in response to statements by gospel singer Ernest Opoku that streaming platforms advantage secular artistes, not like gospel musicians.
“The secular artistes advantage a ton from YouTube and other streaming platforms but not gospel musicians. The secular functions get large monies from there when they add their songs but the gospel artistes rarely advantage and i am just getting authentic.”
“Some of the gospel musicians will say they make funds from streaming but have faith in me it is a lie mainly because i chat to a lot of them. They likely have sponsors who support them.
“Imagine about 800 individuals shopping for my cds at GH¢5 in churches, not to speak about my supporters, and i was superior to go. if i launch a tune and spend cash to shoot a movie, fork out a seem engineer, and not get shut to 50 percent of what i put in, then what is the issue? What am i undertaking with $300 when i put in more than $1,000 on that individual song? Right after uploading on YouTube, i now have to pay back DJs and tv stations to get the music performed. We are not undertaking very well and any gospel musician who will disagree with me likely has a sponsor pushing his or her operates,” said Ernest Opoku.
But Diana Hamilton expressed dissenting sights saying “Far better late than hardly ever like they say. It truly is persistence but then also realizing the appropriate roots to channel your electricity and also all those with the awareness to assistance you. God has been gracious and given me persons who are fingers-on, generally examining administration workforce that are normally working behind the scene to make things perform. So, all those who failed to catch up early, like I said, much better late than hardly ever. Let us build interactions. These factors are based mostly on associations. A DJ will decide on up your song and engage in not since you paid the person any money but simply because probably they like you as a particular person, perhaps the track you happen to be executing is great probably the get the job done you might be carrying out is wonderful,” she recommended gospel musicians.
Analyzing Diana Hamilton’s in-depth understanding about digitization and monetization of tunes, Arnold was without the need of doubt that she will hardly ever eliminate her relevance in the enjoyment industry.
“Just one thing I like about her is that she also won’t eliminate sight of the actuality that she’s a gospel artiste. So, she embraces the [gospel] organization facet and nonetheless understands she is executing the work of God. She will reign for a lengthy time by the grace of God because this is any person who is effectively grounded in the enterprise . . . I maintain declaring it is really exhibit company. Whether or not you’re a gospel artiste or traditional artiste, it is present enterprise. So, embrace the enterprise aspect of the career and then continue to mirror the operate of God. Large ups to you, Diana you’ll reign for a lifetime,” he asserted on the identical programme.
