VERSATILE GHANAIAN artiste Sena Huks, who recently released his album ‘When is day’, has said that the Ghanaian music industry’s growth is choked with some varying factors and his presence will give hope to the industry.
According to Sena, who has over the years served music lovers with some great love tunes; RnB, Hi-life, Hip-Life, Hip-Hop, Afro-RnB, Dancehall and Pop among others, said, “Ghana’s music scene may look like one which is at its choked point with varying factors acting as a brake to the growth of the industry, but with a young talent such as Sena Huks, who is applying new skills to the old trade, we see a glimpse of hope.”
Sena’s first debut (14-track) mixtape, ‘Let It Go’, was released in 2014 and had three (3) singles; ‘Wonkoaa’, ‘Looongtin’ and ‘Go down’, which enjoyed massive air play on various electronic media platforms in Ghana.
The year 2016 saw the returning Sena Huks release ‘Marry Me’, which was followed with ‘Hold on a minute’ on the, ‘Nuff love riddim’, and then released two other singles in 2017 – ‘No More’ and ‘Send me your love’.
He plunged right back into the music space in 2018 with ‘I no dey get you’, which featured BBnZ star, Shaker, and later in that same year released ‘God do am’, which seeks to thank his Maker and has gained some attention since its release.
HE told us, lovers of his art were demanding more music from the prodigy as his music was gaining rapid acceptance.
“It’s about time the world gets a full body of work from me, so they can judge for themselves the talent they have been sleeping on – the Sena Huks you see today. It’s also an avenue to finally lay to rest the doubt about the musical genius which I’m. Get ready for an album instead. Music lovers should anticipate a new video in the coming weeks”
Sena promised his fans that the year 2019 is surely his year of outburst as the days of Sena Huks-less music chats will be a thing of the past.
New artistes are taking for granted – Dr PuTiTi
TALENTED GHANAIAN artiste, Dr PuTiTi has said that industry players in Ghana have taken up- and -coming artiste for granted.
According to him the music industry is retarding growth due to issues like, “improper way of monetizing our art forms and state of the art. Lack of financing, due to inadequate understanding of the music business, lack of large auditoriums for performances and more importantly when industry players take new artist for granted especially the upcoming ones.”
He explained that, Up – and –coming artistes, need lots of support from both the fans and industry to sustain them to the top just like the mainstream artiste.
Dr PuTiTi who doubles as a producer and sound engineer was inspired by Busta Ryymes, 2PAC and NAS started his music during his Senior High School days, “Well, I fell in love with rap when I started listening to Busta Ryymes, 2PAC and NAS. NAS, because, he is very lyrical. I have delved into afro beat and fusion of rap and highlife because it’s indigenous music and represents us as African.”
The young artiste recently released his debut single dubbed ‘Chill up’ which he says talks about things we aspire to do for fun, when we have money in our pockets. The song was produced by Dr PuTiTi.
