K.K Fosu Takes A Swipe At Colleague Musicians – “Stop being Local Champions”

Citi FM’s annual concert Music of African Origin (MOGO) lived up to expectation at National Theater on Friday 5th December as the list of musicians billed took turns to thrill patrons with exhilarating performances.  Among such performers was K.K Fosu who kept patrons to their feet singing and dancing along to his songs. Not only did he give a sterling performance, he also made news by taking a swipe at colleague musicians. 1382220_170396939832814_669818991_n

The six O’clock hit maker after expressing his appreciation to the numerous fans for holding and supporting him all this while  took a swipe at fellow musicians for miming and called that very unprofessional.

“It feels great to see your fans singing along with you when you are performing on stage with the live band but it’s also a big disgrace that as at now most of my colleague musicians cannot perform with live band sets and still mime. I call those musicians jokers. As a musician you must let your fans have a fell of your natural voice on stage without the voice passing through any software. It is hard time Ghanaian musicians target the international market and stop being local champions” –  he said.

He however asked musicians to take music as serious business.

“Its about time we all play live music and stop that photocopying kind of thing we are bragging with, if our music does not sound natural we cannot penetrate through the international market. Please let’s say no to miming for the good of the music industry because it does not speak well of us at all, it only make musicians very lazy in learning because one knows there are software’s that can turn voices to what so ever they wants.”

K.K Fosu was recently honoured at the just ended 3rd Annual Abedorc Production’s Arts, Entertainment and community Awards of excellence 2013 in Toronto – Canada.
