Mainstream artistes don’t owe upcoming ones any favour – artiste

Having featured the likes of the ‘Koko’ hit maker, E.L, and also one of the top female vocalists in the Ghanaian music industry, Efya, Bryan The Mensah is fast paving his way to the top, with his professed “contemporary music”. Certainly, he cannot be left out when mentioning upcoming artistes whose works are currently in circulation. Bryan The Mensah was part of the initial hundred who were recognised by Mr Eazi in his “Empower Africa” movement. When he took his turn at the X-Jam show with Host Thompson C D Nortey on Monday, Bryan The Mensah had very interesting thought on the ever present complaint among upcoming artistes that those in mainstream don’t support them. “I don’t know why artistes feel like it’s the responsibility of the mainstream artistes to push them,” he underscored, “If they don’t like you, there’s no foundation for them to feel like they wanna help you”. Coincidentally, the artiste has a song titled “Assumptions”, which takes a dive into some of the “unwarranted” complaints of some upcoming artistes. There is a line in that song that translates into the need for upcoming artistes to literally step out of their houses and go to places and also meet people that will somewhat enhance their pursuit towards their musical dreams. “I feel like you should read more. It’s just like how if you wanna become a doctor, you go to medical school . There is a need to learn everything we can about music, the industry and then implement it,” he advised. About his take on the industry  as a whole, he said, “I think we are gradually getting there; wherever it is we wanna get.” Bryan the Mensah is an artiste and producer based in Accra, Ghana, and he considers his style of music tilting towards the inspiration, social and personal experience. He currently moves in between his music career , his studies for an I.T degree at Blue Crest College, and also running his Graphic and Web Design company called “Plegishes”. About his inspiration, Bryan the Mensah mentioned artistes both locally and globally, such as Sarkodie, E.L , Manifest, Post Malone , Drake , A.K.A , and Nasty C, among a few others. He would also like to work with the these big names in the near future.
