- Eazzy says the Ghana music industry doesn't pay when artistes lose public attention
- The musician says she is currently busy with other profitable ventures
Ghanaian female artiste, Mildred Ashong, widely known as Eazzy, has disclosed that she is currently off the music scene and concentrating on other profitable ventures.
According to the music diva, she prepared for ‘hard times’ and has turned her attention on other businesses.
The musician say she decided to make a switch at her own will when she realized attention on her had waned.
Although Eazzy did not make public her new line of business, she stressed the music industry doesn’t pay much if you are really not on top of the ladder.
“We have poor structures in this industry, and that has been the bane of Ghanaian artistes because you don’t make enough when you aren’t on top,” Eazzy told Graphic Showbiz in an interview.
The singer said she was always aware of hard times in the music industry and therefore made adequate provisions for that.
“The music business is all lucrative when you’re topping charts and enjoying the attention as a big artiste but the financial flow drops as soon as you don’t get much spotlight. I prepared for such days and I’m happy it’s reaping off now when I’m not as big as I used to be,” she said.
Eazzy sharing her views perception that Ghanaian female artistes don’t stay on top for long, held the opinion that, those times have past and the trend has changed due to how she saw Ebony performed.
The ‘Wengeze’ hitmaker added that, “the truth is Ebony gave many men very good competition because she was very talented and for that, had massive huge support. I also remember how I enjoyed such patronage at the peak of my career so I think if you are good, you will get public backing irrespective of your gender.”
