DJs must play our songs for free, appreciation will come later-eShun



Supremely sensational High life/Afro Pop artiste Ethel Esi Eshun known in showbiz circles as eShun has expressed worry about the rate that Disc Jockeys (DJs) demanded money before playing musicians’ songs on air.

She described the behaviour as “unjust” and should be changed for Ghanaians to be served with good variety music from talented artistes who are not financially secured.

This she said could project the artiste to get more gigs and show’s contracts that would enrich them to show appreciation to the DJs afterwards.

eShun narrated that, the industry had been full of challenges for artistes coupling with financial issues as their arts go viral for free on various social media platforms.
“Getting your song playing on air is not for free, cost of shooting a video, the logistics in there and everything goes out for free without people patronizing it. They just share the music among themselves on whatsapp, facebook and other social platforms without paying a dime, this is a whole challenge for artistes,” she said.

She bemoaned that if artistes do not gain contracts for performing on shows they tend to lose a lot adding that “those who invest in you might withdraw and your career will end right there.”

The lyricist insisted that DJs should bear with artistes and support them to make the industry exciting, compelling and attractive by playing each and everyone’s song.
Speaking with the “someone loves me” hit maker further stated that if DJs only play songs that they received payola on listeners would tune off and they would show less interest in the music because they have heard the songs over and over again.

eShun is set to release her first album titled seven in this month, she has twenty one tracks on the album and has released a new video of her track “clap for yourself” to usher her “Seven” album unto market.

The talented singer became popular in 2016 with hit tracks like “Yolo,” “Akyia” amongst others and she is working hard to make the music industry a great one.
