Veteran Highlife artiste, Akosua Agyapong, has advised female musicians in the country to focus on building their arts than their outfits.
According to her, the current generation of artistes release hit songs that last for less than a year because they do not focus on creating works that will live on even after they are gone.
“Today, most of the songs that people create die after three to four months. Even though the person is still living, the song will just go off air. You should do things that will live long so that when you are gone, we’ll still remember you for it,” she said
Speaking on Hitz FM, Akosua Agyapong also blamed managers for encouraging these young female acts to dress scantily in their bid to make them famous.
“When I ask some of these artistes why they dress the way they do, they say ‘our managers said we should dress that way so that we will look good and sexy”
“…the funny thing is those dresses do not make the popularity last.” She added
She however advised such female acts to resist being pressured to do what they will not be proud of in the future.
“I’m begging the musicians, the actors and actresses don’t let anybody tell you what to do to become famous or liked. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are beautiful, advise and encourage yourself because nobody out there will encourage you,”
