Not every popular song is relevant – Cwesi Oteng

- Gospel music artiste, Cwesi Oteng, has stated that some hit songs are not relevant

- He added that some songs are of no benefit to society

Ghanaian Gospel musician, Cwesi Oteng, has argued that the fact that a song is popular doesn’t mean it is relevant.

According to him, some songs have enjoyed massive airplay, but that does not mean they impact society in positive ways.

The renowned musician’s comments were part of his response when he sought to justify his absence from the music scene for some time now.

In his opinion, it is better to have songs that remain even when the musician is no more actively singing.

“The purpose of any artiste is not to make hits for people to sing and dance to and then the next moment, they just forget about it”, he stated.

“The likes of Michael Jackson and Obrafour are still enjoying prominence. That is why I choose relevance and purpose over popularity,” he added.

The God Dey Bless Me hitmaker went on to say that some songs he has released did not do too well, but he isn’t perturbed.

This, he explained is, because hit songs do not define an artiste’s relevance and success.
