“The coronavirus has helped me write more songs” - Akwaboah
He further explained that he has never been like other artistes who go out to party
Ghanaian artiste, Akwaboah, has described the current coronavirus period as a blessing in disguise.
According to him, staying indoor has helped to write a lot more amazing songs for production.
Contrary to the reaction of most other artistes, Akwaboah has said that he is embracing these times.
While his fellows are lamenting over the difficulties and hardships within the period due to the obvious lack of shows, Akwaboah seems to have found a way to make the difficulties work to his own advantage.
“Definitely it have had effects on all of us because our President put a ban on public gatherings. We perform shows to get money to feed ourselves so the ban has affected us somehow because of the mere fact that you can’t actually go out to perform”.he said.
He further explained that he has never been like other artistes who go out to party but instead derives his inspiration from staying indoors and writing good songs for people.
“I’m really an indoor person so I devoted a lot of time to write more amazing songs and do other interesting stuff. So yes the coronavirus have had an effect on us but in terms of music and business-wise, I have really benefited from these pandemic times”.
Akwaboah Jnr. launched his music career in 2013 but in April 2010 he won songwriter of the year award at the Ghana Music Awards for writing SP Kofi Sarpong’s ‘Ayeyi Ndwom’ which became an instant hit.
