Artistes Are Impatient But Not ungrateful - Gasmilla

Gasmilla Explains why People Mistakenly Tag Artist Ungrateful Without Understanding Them

  •   Ghanaian music industry has witness a lot of sudden artiste-management-splits
  • Investors shed-off as they become afraid after hearing the tag artiste are ungrateful severally
  • Record Labels should educate and explain to singed artists how they intend to achieve set goals
  • We should find a good way to settle issues between artistes and managements at the prime stage


Ghanaian Hiplife artist, Odartei Milla Lamptey popularly known as Gasmilla or International Fisherman, who is recognized as the originator of the Azonto Dance and Genre has disclosed that artists are impatient but not ungrateful.

According to Gasmila, a creative artist has the ability to write and record several songs within few days or weeks, and would want those projects reach the masses at a faster rate. But when you keep those projects hostage for long, they sometimes think you don’t want them to break boundaries, and become the super stars they have been dreaming  and working hard to be, and they eventual turn to leave because of impatient but not due to ungratefulness.

To manage an artist and become a successful management team or a label, you must have a vision and a plan. You should try and explain certain vital things about the vision, plan and how to achieve them to the artist, said the King of Azonto on the up close show on Max TV, on August, 7th 2021.

Ghanaian music industry has witness a lot of sudden artiste-management-splits, which often emerges as a result of a little misunderstanding between artist and management. On the average two cases of artiste-management-splits occupy the Ghanaian entertainment media space annually.  This plight has really affected the industry in so many ways, sometimes investors don’t worry themselves finding out the actual cause of the splits. They shed-off as they become afraid after hearing the tag artist are ungrateful severally.

I think the sudden artist management splits, should be tipped as one of the major reasons the industry lacks huge investments. We should find a good way to settle issues between artist and managements at the prime stage, before the thought of splitting cross the mind, and through this I believe if not completely eliminating the sudden artist-management-splits, it will reduce number of splits per year. And this will go a long way to clear the ungratefulness tag of artiste, attract more investors, and finally the birth of a better Ghanaian music industry.

Chicago prosecutor drops sex abuse charges against R. Kelly

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” against Kelly, who has been convicted in federal court.

An Illinois prosecutor dropped 10 charges of sex abuse against the singer R. Kelly on Monday, saying the cost was one of the factors she weighed in her decision.

Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is already serving a 30-year prison sentence on charges of federal racketeering and sex trafficking after he was convicted in New York last year.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” with the two convictions. She said her office’s “limited resources and court time” were the ultimate factors, noting that it found the accusations to be credible.

“Mr. Kelly is looking at the possibility of never walking out of prison again,” Foxx said.

Kelly is set to appear Tuesday in Cook County Court, where the charges will be formally dropped. The state has accused Kelly of sexually abusing four people, three of whom were minors.

Foxx announced the state’s case in 2019, saying the incidents occurred from May 1998 to January 2010. Kelly had faced three to seven years in prison for each charge if he were convicted.

The women in the case were identified in the indictment only by their initials. Multiple women have come forward with allegations over the years.

Lifetime aired a six-part docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” in January 2019 in which multiple women alleged Kelly subjected them to mental, physical and sexual abuse. Foxx urged potential victims to come forward to speak with her office about possible criminal activity after the series.

Foxx said Monday that she consulted with the women in the indictment before she decided to drop the charges, acknowledging that some might be disappointed.

“I know firsthand how difficult it is for you to tell your stories,” Foxx said. “Four years ago, I stood at this podium and shared my story of having been a survivor and my full understanding of what it means to have to go before strangers to discuss what is arguably one of the most horrific experiences one could have. And these women, all of them Black, came forward, believing that they would be heard.”

Kelly also faces state charges in Minnesota, where he has been accused of soliciting a minor for sexual purposes and engaging in prostitution with a minor.

In the New York case, Kelly was convicted on nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. Jurors found that he set up a criminal enterprise that enabled him to recruit and transport underage girls for sex.

Months later in Chicago federal court, he was convicted on six counts of sexual exploitationand enticement of a minor. He is scheduled to be sentenced on those charges Feb. 23.

Kelly’s attorneys have said he plans to appeal both federal convictions.

50 GB Of Unreleased Michael Jackson Songs Stolen And Leaked

Published

By

Renowned music engineer Brad Sundberg’s laptop was stolen this week during a break at one of his “In The Studio With MJ” events in Brussels, leading to the leaks of several unreleased songs by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Sundberg’s laptop contained a significant amount of unreleased material by the iconic singer, predominately from the late 1980s and early 1990s. He would play them for fans who attended the events over the years.

The stolen songs, which were recorded during Michael’s “Bad” and “Dangerous” eras, have now surfaced on various online platforms, causing a frenzy among the fans. This is not the first time that unreleased material by Michael has been leaked, but under the circumstance of the theft, it’s certainly the most shocking and disappointing.

Fans have urged others to refrain from sharing or downloading the leaked songs, as they were not intended for public release and may contain unfinished versions of the tracks, as well as damage any plans for potential future releases.

We at MJWN are deeply saddened by the events. We hope those involved will be brought to justice. We will not be posting any links to the stolen material, nor naming the songs that have been leaked.

Michael’s Estate has yet to release a statement on the matter.
