- Tic says he longer offers his experience and advice to young musicians free of charge
- According to him young musicians value advice when they pay for it
Hiplife musician Nana Kwaku Okyere Duah, popularly known as Tic Tac, has said that all young artistes looking to get advice from him must first pay.
The “kangaroo” singer said most of the young musicians of today are reluctant to pick advice from more experienced ones like him.
In his view, it is better to charge before offering advice because musicians tend to take advice more seriously when they pay for it.
Speaking on the Starr Drive show Thursday, Tac said he will always be willing to help underground artistes, but said he is also a business man who cannot give advice for free.
“Underground artistes do not like me because I ask them to pay for consulting. It’s nice to guide underground artistes but it’s right to make it a business so they can take my guidance serious. I’m a businessman so if you need my advice you pay for it,” he stated.
Recently, the hiplife singer changed his name from Tic Tac to Tic and he insists his new name has been received well by fans.
According to him, people have started calling him by his new name – a gesture he described as “fantastic”.
“The response has been fantastic, girls call me bra tic already and guys call me Tic and so it’s about living the name. It’s not really a rebranding because already many people call me Tic so I’m just living it”.
Tic further stated that he will no more make songs based on what his fans call for, but by his personal feelings and convictions.
“My craft is about what I feel and not what the fans are telling me. In the end it’s about me. The fan is supposed to learn from me not the other way round. So, these days I will do what I feel from within,” he added.
Tic Tac announced in a recent interview with Citi FM that he has re-branded and thus must be referred to as Tic. Tic Tacused to be a household name in the Ghana music industry during his heydays, having won the coveted Musician of the Year award in 2004.
