Young Ghanaian musician, and songwriter, Linda Eshun, better known as Eshun has disclosed the acceptance of Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’ is a clear indication that Ghanaias taste for music is on the decline.
According to Eshun, Ghanaians hailing and accepting Patapaa’s kind of songs is killing real talents in Ghana music industry.
Speaking on Zylofon FM as monitored by Browngh.com, the singer stated that Ghanaians prefer 'one way of doing things'.
Therefore, it makes it difficult for talented young artistes with a different style of music to penetrate and survive the music industry.
“Ghanaians are used to one style of music, the Patapaa and kind of songs are what is in vogue. This kills talents of musicians who want to try new styles” she said
Eshun in her conversation added that most artistes in the music industry have been forced to follow the trend as that is what Ghanaians love to listen to.
"People who divert from it are left on their own, therefore they are forced one way or the other to stay in it” she added.
To her, for an artiste to survive in the Ghana music industry, one must learn to do what the masses want, and later do his/her own style when accepted.
“However, I believe if one follows the trend for a while to make their name, they can chip in their main style. Efya did it and it worked out for her,” the musician said.
Eshun, a powerful vocal goddess and performer, hails from Apam in Central Region of Ghana.
She was the first Runner up in the Glo X-Factor, participated in Project Fame –West Africa in 2011 and TV3 Mentor reality show.
The talented singer currently has a number of hit songs featuring Flowking Stone, Kofi Kinaata among others.
