According to Andy, the label did not like the fact that he sang in Twi and wanted to change his brand altogether.

Challenges After TV3 Mentor

The musician said one of the biggest problems he faced after the show was being underrated by key players in the industry and his fellow musicians.

The superstar mentioned that he had been left to finance his career by himself without much support after his first album and regretted being on a talent show at a point. He said:

It got to a point I regretted going to the reality show seriously. Especially being from Tv3 Mentor, it was hard for other stations to promote me because of me being another station's product. Because if they mention my name, they will add Andy of tv3 Mentor fame to it, and they cannot promote Tv3 on their station.
