Budding TikTok star, Martina Dwamena popularly known as Asantewaa, has advised Ghanaian musicians to utilise TikTok in promoting their songs.

In an interview on UTV's United Showbiz, she told host, Vicky Zugah, that possessing craft as an artiste is of no value unless they decide to use TikTok.

"If you are an artiste, your craft doesn't matter again. Until you pay TikTokers to promote your song, you will be singing it alone," she said.

Gyakie Says That TikTok Does Not Determine How Long A Song Would Top Charts

Thriving Ghanaian afrobeat singer, Gyakie, says that TikTok does not determine the longevity of a song on the charts.

In an interview with Doreen Avio on Daybreak Hitz, she noted that the type of song one drops will determine its longevity and not dance trends on social media.
