What do you think upcoming artists are passing through in the industry?
Up and coming artists are really passing through a lot, we don’t have good platforms to showcase ourselves and when we perform the coordinators always want a free show from us. Common we make good music and we should get paid, cuz we pay so as to record the songs and we pay to blog them and have them played on the radio station.
As an upcoming artiste, what advice can you give to the upcoming artiste
My advice to up and coming artiste is that they shouldn’t quit. Practice makes perfect and being humble should be a trademark as well. Learn every day and do good songs. Most importantly be yourself don’t try to copy others, BE OUTSTANDING WITH A GOOD CONTENT.
What can u say about Dexsblog.com & Crew?
Dexsblog Crew is a very good site, they work tirelessly and they update their library, I think this platform is good for an up and coming artiste to showcase their songs.
