Renowned disk jockey (DJ) of the Despite Group of Company, Dj Toxic, has cautioned Ghanaian musicians to stop blaming DJs for promoting foreign music rather than local content.
In a conversation with Sammy Kay, DJ Toxic described Ghanaian musicians as lazy and unprofessional because according to him they don’t research, lack creativity and always mimic and follow trends.
“It’s about time Ghanaian musician’s sit-up and understand their chosen profession, know what it entails than putting blames on DJs”…..DJ Toxic stated.
“You do shabby and lazy work in the studio and blame DJ’s for playing foreign materials, beside they don’t even know music is a full time job”, they don’t even research and as a result produce one way rhythms and poor content”…. DJ Toxic , born Stephen Frimpong added.
“The most annoying thing is, they don’t even have time for their own works, yet expect DJ’s to keep wake for them….. Why this? If a Ghanaian artist imitates a Nigerian rhythm, I will play the Nigerian song because that is the original rhythm”…..he explained.
“It’s so annoying when they do their crap they call bangers, get your contact and WhatsApp their songs to you expecting you to download with your own credit and play”….he further stated.
Pushed further, the 2017 DJ award nominee said, Ghanaian musicians as a result of laziness lack commitment, communication, and respect.
“I was shocked when I heard Pope Skinny passing an immature and infantile comment that Ghanaian DJs play Nigerian music than our local content, he’s someone I’ve known way back and he’s still doing the Fun World rap, they must sit up and stop the blame games because good music needs just little push”, DJ Toxic furiously concluded.
