My art is larger than trends; my music isn’t for TikTok – Fameye
Fameye, a well-known stage name for Peter Famiyeh Bozah, a singer from Ghana, has given his perspective to the current debates over TikTok’s effects on the Ghanaian music business.
Asantewaa, one of Ghana’s most prominent TikTokers, stated the following last weekend on UTV’s “UNITED SHOWBIZ” program, which included well-known TikTok stars:
“For this reason, I assert that it is no longer relevant how long you have played your music game. She stated, “We are the board of directors, you have to bring it to us. When you release a song today, it’s not about your art until you bring it to us; otherwise, you’ll have to sing your song alone.
Music enthusiasts and certain participants in the Ghanaian music business criticized her and her colleagues for their remarks.
The ‘PRAISE’ hitmaker claimed he is in total disagreement with the claims made and that the music art is a lot more serious business than following trends in an interview with Zionfelix.
My music is not for TikTok and TikTok is not the main platform that makes my music go big.
Music is bigger than TikTok, loud music doesn’t automatically make a song good. Because a song went viral on TikTok doesn’t mean the artist is extremely good. Too much power has been vested in these TikTokers for them to be passing these kinds of comments.
The comments were distasteful, and I wasn’t pleased to hear them. Unless she was playing and said it as a joke in the heat of the moment. On whether he had ever paid a TikToker to promote his music on the platform, Fameye responded: I do my personal videos and share them on social media.
That’s how I’ve been promoting my songs since 2019. I don’t create TikTok challenges for my songs, I don’t dance to promote my songs.
If you don’t hear my songs on TikTok, doesn’t mean they are not a hit on the streets. I have never paid any TikToker to deliberately promote and make my song a hit. I have however sent the monetary value of thanksgiving to some TikTokers who used my songs in the videos voluntarily.
In concluding his remarks, the VGMA ‘Songwriter Of The Year’ said:
My art is larger than trends; my music isn’t for TikTok. — Fameye
