Gasmilla says releasing hit songs is not his focus
Telemo hitmaker, Gasmilla has stated that if there was ever anything he would avoid doing in his line of job as a musician, is to be pressured into releasing hit songs.
In a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz, he mentioned that he will be not cowed into releasing songs for the sake of it.
In his own words: “I don't rush to make quick songs. I take my time with my music, crafting each one carefully. My goal is to make music that people will love for a long, long time”.
For Gasmilla, who is credited with popular hits including Telemo, Aboodatoi and Ak3rsomorshi, among others told Graphic Showbiz that his focus extends beyond just releasing hits, because he aims to create songs generations will hold dear with pride.
Gasmilla also issued a strong caution to music enthusiasts and industry players against the practice of categorising artistes into specific music genres or styles. (Read also: Gasmilla: It’s wrong to categorise musicians by music genres)
Speaking in a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz, he pointed out that creativity thrives when artistes are free to explore and adapt to various music genres, instead of being confined to a particular category.
“I don’t think people should box artistes into one style of music. That singular act kills creativity. I, for instance, may have the skills to explore other areas and put my artistic prowess to the test.
“Putting me in one style of music will kill my creativity. In fact, this act of saying this artiste belongs to this space or that space alone kills creativity, and we must put a stop to it," Gasmilla said.
