IN their bid to gain recgonition for their career, many up and coming artistes sell themselves cheaply; choosing to perform for free at events but new entrant, Cynthia Millz, does not believe it’s worth it to do that.

According to the Dancehall act, new artistes should not cheapen themselves by playing for free at shows but rather work hard to get their songs out there after which event organisers will chase them.

“Don’t be in a hurry to mount stages to be recognised. When you work hard and your songs are out there, event organisers will look for you and pay you.

“Event organisers are always looking for trending songs and up and coming artistes whose songs are trending will make their list.

“I would never play at an event for free. Actually, I am working to get my songs all over the place for event organisers not to take me for granted,” she told Showbiz last weekend.

Citing an example, Cynthia said everyone was dying to see Patataa because his song, One Corner, was everywhere and event organisers were all after him.

“I am not sure he would have been paid if he were pleading to play for free. If you want to support a colleague musician by performing for free that is on a different level,” she stated.

Cynthia Millz is out with her latest single, Papito, on which she advises young ladies to stay away from sugar daddies. Produced by Chensee Beatz, Papito is gaining attention especially for Cynthia’s serious Ragga.

Signed to Great David Hallmark and Panther Music, Cynthia Millz sees herself taking over soon since she believes there is no pure female Dancehall artiste at the moment.

“I don’t know of any female musician doing serious Dancehall like me. I do pure Dancehall but the others mix it with Afrobeats and makes me unique.

“Anyone doubting me can check out my song Papito on YouTube and he or she will know that Cynthia Millz is in for serious business,” she added.
