Afro-beat singer Addi-Kissidu Eugene, popularly known as Qweku Ace, has observed that musicians in Ghana deserve better working conditions from handlers and other stakeholders.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with THE PUBLISHER, he disclosed that it is not an easy job to always entertain fans, especially during live performances.
According to the newly signed Artiste on Remedi Entertainment, the humiliation some musicians suffer from some industry persons is simply indescribable.
”Just recently, I suffered serious humiliation from the hands of a senior music producer. I was supposed to perform at his show, I got there on time but to my surprise, he refused to allow me to perform. I tried to ask why he was treating me that way, but he refused to give any explanation. That was unfair” – he lamented.
On how he struggled to the top of his career, this was what he said: ”I had to Rebrand my showbiz name from Ace Eugene to Qweku Ace, after releasing my debut Single called ‘Fallen’ featuring Kenya Fees due to the fact that I wanted to be Unique and authentic”.
He said he later released his Afro song called “Adukro mu nsuo” followed by his hiphop song, “GABA” which featured Dancehall sensation “Epixode”.
The young champ, who blends all genre of music from highlife, hip hop, rap and the rest, hails from Suhum in the Eastern Region of Ghana.
His biggest inspirations in the music industry are Kojo Antwi, K.K Fosu, J Cole, Nas, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Sarkodie amongst others.
