In 2024, you have shared zero links of colleagues to push their craft. I pray they give you same level of support as you give them.

Youtube searches are sorted by Relevance (that's the default), so this is normal. New channels are not considered relevant by the system. It'll take some time before it starts popping up at the top in search. I'll share

He stated that Wendy Shay and Bullet started off nicely, and now that they have parted ways, it is normal for such circumstances to happen in the music industry.

Speaking on what may cause musicians to part ways with their record labels, he stated that in some cases, these musicians are ungrateful, or sometimes, the record labels are greedy.

"Sometimes too, the artiste grows to a certain level where the record label can no more handle the artiste so then the artiste would have to move on," he said.

Mr Tsormanah further stated that Wendy Shay and Bullet are on good terms, adding that they are also leaving room for the public to speculate whether they are on good terms or not.

"They are cool. That is what I know. Even within this week, the two of them were together. They were driving in town. Behind the scenes, they are very fine."

Speaking on Wendy Shay's new songs' struggle to get the numbers, he said that sometimes many Ghanaian musicians leave their record labels without implementing measures.

He said that in some cases, when artistes leave their record labels, they can employ the services of their former record labels and leverage their expertise to boost their numbers.

"If Wendy Shay wants to move on now or be an independent artiste now, it is too early to tell whether she is going to survive or not. Because she can move out of RuffTown and still engage the services of RuffTown, or Lynx Entertainment or Empire. And then if she leaving the record label too she has not put downt he right measures in place, she can also leave and then end up being like the Eazzys, and then the MzVees, and then Asem when he left Lynx Entertianment."
