NO CENSOR PODCAST EP05 | Importance of Your Come up Song

On this episode of NO CENSOR Podcast, the homies talk about the importance and impacts of your first song (hits or popular).

Musical success just like any sportsmanship, can be very rewarding and artist who have tasted fame from having a hit songs can confirm how very fulfilling this feelings bring.

For some, its a great start for their careers and a lot of artist has stayed hot since their first major hit, bringing in countless collabs, brand endorsement deals, traveling and touring and even cashing in big time. For some artist, this can be overwhelming, especially when their next songs don’t match up the commercial success of their previews.

Artist like Kuami Eugene, KiDi, Kofi Kinaata, Shatta Wale, Castro; bless his Soul has had so many number one songs and have cemented their feet as music superstars in Ghana, But for some this 15 minutes of fame leaves quick and it gets difficult trying to recreate this magical moments, a typical example is artist like Patapaa with his One corner global hit, Nana Boro, “Aha yɛ dɛ” Dr. Slim with “Ole sɛkɛ ni wo ye” Zigi-you Sey weytin, Eddie Khae- Do the Dance Bosom PYoung Ataa Adwoa etc some few years ago.

In recent times, artist like Yaw Tog, Kofi Jamar, Kwaku Darlington, Kwame Yoghurt, Dead People and even the Asakaa Boys, have enjoy commercial success with their first songs but are struggling to match up their first success. For Yaw Tog, his Sore with the Asakaa Boys and even his remix with Stormzy and Kwesi Arthur became a commercial success and eventually creating a drill wave in the Ghanaian music scene, this anthem has set the tone for most underground artist to gain recognition by releasing music without major record label deals or management.
