Hip-life Ghanaian legend, Nana Kwaku Okyere Duah, formerly known as Tic Tac and now Tic has blasted critics for saying older artistes should retire from active music.
Few months ago fnnewsonline.com made publication concerning this same issue when hip life singer Obrafour revealed there is no retirement in music so he will keep singing till he dies.
Tic in an interview listened by
fnnewsonline.com on Radio Central with Amansan Krakye, has also lamented on how Ghanaians ignorantly think there is pension in doing music.
He said ;
” There is no pension in music. I started singing professionally in 1995 and I was singing together with people who some were 10 years older than me. We are in 2018 now and you will bear witness with that I’ve proven beyond doubt that I’m a hitmaker. So with this I don’t think age is a problem. I started listening to Kojo Antwi at tender age but I’ve grown to become a star myself and the man is still making hits. So its about time Ghanaians should learn and stop saying big artistes should retire. I see that to be barbaric “
The “Philomena” hitmaker went on say that one wouldn’t be happy when his/her strong and active father working in a company is asked to retire.
” Imagine your father is working for a company and they ask him retire because a young guy has come. Would you be happy about that ? So personally I don’t listen to those stuff, I’m a young man doing music, they life begins at 40 and I’m not even 40 yet so why should I retire because I started early. I see those stuffs as barbaric “, he added.
Few days ago Tic released part 2 of his popular song “Kwani Kwani” with Lyn Entertainment sinjay Kuami Eugene.
