Ridwanullah Solahudeen O.

Respected singer and song producer , Cobhams Asuquo, firmly believes that within the wake of the COVID – 19 pandemic , entertainers are needed now greater than ever . He instructed Saturday Beats , “Entertainment has usually been a device todeliver joy and luxury to human beings andthese are instances when human beingswant as lots of that as possible . That the world goes through hard times is evengreater cause to keep our spirits up and one of the ways to do that is thru entertainment . I would inspire entertainers to keep toperform their craft because we are wishednow more than ever .”
Weeks back, Asuquo had trended on Twitter after posting a video of himself , recording acover of DJ Neptune ’s song, ‘ Nobody ’. Asked why he did a cover of the song, Asuquo said , “ I commonly like to ‘mess ’around with different varieties of tune and Ioccur to like this specific song. It’s one of these tunes that are hard to forget . I ‘covered ’ it because it become fun , that is asturdy motivation behind almost some thingI do musically. I like to experience my workand I take into account that to be quiterewarding . That it was well received changed into simply mind – blowing. ”

Sharing his view on artistes paying more attention to beats than lyrics , he said , “ I don’t know whether I ’m qualified to answer that or not but I will say that beats are intrinsically who we are as Africans so it’s not uncommon for us to naturally respond to a great beat before anything else . However , music is also a medium to communicate a message , and lyrics play an important role in that . I hope we come to a place where both the audience and musicians begin to pay more attention to music as a holistic experience and not focus only on certain parts of it to the exclusion of others .”
Sharing his thoughts on artistes getting more credit than music producers , the ‘Ordinary People ’ singer said , “Artistes do get a lot of credit but I don’t know they get all the credit . “ Producers get some recognition , which is why we are familiar with names such as Sarz on the Beat , DJ Coublon, Baby Fresh, among others. As with many jobs and careers , there are those who work behind the scenes to make the magic happen . I have often been on that side of things and what is most important is getting commensurate compensation for value provided , and that the music is well received by consumers . No producer wants to put in all that work just to have the music sit in a hard drive, so the further the music can go, the better for everyone. ”
