Taking to his X timeline, Ifani shared some gems with artists who are on the up about building relations in the music space.
To my fellow upcoming artists: independent artist doesn’t mean by yourself. It means without a major record label. Truth is you can’t win alone, by yourself.
Even if you could, you still need a team to travel with and work with. You can’t do everything by yourself. So get a team,” he wrote.
A couple of years ago, Ifani worked with upcoming rapper Big Xhosa, who was ecstatic about bagging the opportunity to work with the Ewe hitmaker, someone he grew up admiring.
Big Xhosa said he was excited about the iFani feature as he grew up watching the star on TV. He said out of all the big names he could have worked with, he chose the legendary rapper.
“I don’t think there’s anybody as excited as me about this iFani feature. I used to watch him on TV, now he is on my song? I have access to work with a lot of established artists but I preferred iFani.
He is a legend to me and will forever be, I don’t care ba nithini!” said Big Xhosa.
To my fellow UPCOMING ARTISTS:
Independent Artist doesn’t mean
It means Without A Major Record Label.
Truth is, u can’t win ALONE; By Yourself.
Even if you could, you still need a team to travel with & work with.
U can’t do everythin By Yourself.
So, get a team!
