Support For Support – Mixtic Writes

Published

on

Show business shortened Showbiz, is a very expensive venture which blends creativity with investments.

The main purpose of show business is to use One’s creativity to create an avenue for making some cool cash, in a very legal and positive manner.

But the big question is,  Should it always be an investment of cash or should have a little bit of a barter exchange?  An exchange i term support for support.

With over 15 years of practicing showbiz in various forms, from selling of music CDs to Radio presenting, TV presenting, publicity , Media marketing and now Artiste Management, there are lots of people l have met as an individual who play vital roles in some of the activities i do to ensure results are achieved.

These group of individuals in the show Business, with more emphasis to Music, includes but not only

DJs/Presenters

Producers

Promoters/Bloggers

Publicists / Marketers

Graphic Designers / Photographers

creative visual directors

Artistes

Actors / Models

Record labels

Artiste Managers

Event Organizers

Stylists

With all these people working and competing for resources to assist their operations,  lets consider if one is supposed to hire the services of all the above mentioned professionals before releasing one single, how can he/she cope? In a case where the individual has little or  no money at all.

My thought

This game is a numbers game,  therefore it would be very critical any creative person, artist or an Artiste with vision can identify few people in the various areas with a common interest to form a strong team. The team must be transparent and selfless in a way that there would be accountability and fairness in the distribution of any potential revenues generated from the team’s efforts.

If forming a team would be too much to bare,  connect with some few who would believe in you and have some exhange, for example an artiste can have a good connect with a graphic designer where by the artiste would recommend the graphic designer to many other artiste colleagues all the time in exchange for cover arts without paying.

If this arrangement is agreed it will save the artiste some cost in paying for artwork which can be channeled into promotion.

Any professional who notices your effort of consistently supporting their works would also make some effort to support yours, unless may be they don’t have any intentions to form a union,  then you can move on until you get someone who believes in  your work and willing to have that exchange.

Exchange is not robbery, it is a way to reduce some cost in an industry that requires many professionals to get you results.

Support people who support you,  that is the way to go

Azigiza-: Ghana didn’t take advantatge of Shatta Wale and Beyonce’s collaboration

Published

on

Victor Kpakpo Addo popularly known as Reverend Azigiza Jnr has asked the government to find ways of pushing Ghanaian acts onto the international scene.

Speaking on Upside Down on Citi TV, he said Ghana did not take advantage of Shatta Wale’s feature on Beyonce’s ‘The Lion King: The gift’ album.

He said this when he was asked to assess the performance of the current crop of Ghanaian musicians.
“I really love Sarkodie. I have never met him but I think he has got something that even if the Ghana Tourist Board, the musicians union whatever can pick some three, four, five people and find ways of pushing them,” he said.
“I was excited when I saw Shatta Wale and Beyonce. It was good, I saw Stonebwoy and other people. But we can be intentional. For example, what advantage have we taken from Shatta Wale and Beyonce? What have done with it?” he asked.
He further noted that the Ghana Tourism Authority can ride on it, pick this guy and market him to the world.
“Let’s do something on CNN with this guy, inviting them to Ghana. Music is a lifestyle thing so see how you can weave other lifestyle stuff with it,” he said.
He started his Disc Jockey career in 1991 on the radio as a presenter and DJ and hosted programmes such as Joy Fm’s Joy Beach Jam, Video Vibes, Guinness Music for Your Dancing Feet on GTV and the Azigiza show.
Rev. Azigiza enrolled in some Bible schools and since become a minister of the gospel.
