Taiwo Joseph Adebiyi Ogunsanya also known as Donnyace says artists should do more networking to set themselves apart from the crowd
“Some artists have actually been really spending this time shooting videos, radio air plays and that’s really good to see. I think that’s actually the best thing to do now if I were looking to be promoting things as an artist, I would do more networking online, connecting with everyone so that I had a really good book of contacts to reach out to when we start coming out from under our rocks.”
Teaming up with a good producer not just famous producer this will not only give artists the opportunity to technically enhance their sound but also open doors to a long list of contacts within the industry.
“If someone comes to me or goes to Google and looks for a producer or asks people who’s good to work with, it’s usually an indication that they’ve got to a point in recognising that they can’t do it alone. So if an artist has a problem, I’m going to have a solution, either personally or through my network – we’ll create a vibe that will be out the box.
I’ve invested my time in learning about the nuance of production and performance … getting energy, getting a vibe, understanding the technology,” Donnyace continues. “So I guess the benefit is if you’ve hit a roadblock or you’re listening to your work – whether it’s been done DIY or at a project studio – and it’s just not connecting with you as an artist, then it could be helpful to see a producer and discuss that problem because it’s very likely that They have a solution to that.”
For me i always talk to my brother Kehinde solomon Ogunsanya – He is the director of our creative agency and he helps with A&R for newly discovered talents.
