Well known Ghanaian hip hop and hiplife artiste from Takoradi, Ayesem, has put on his voice to the talk of whether people from Takoradi support their very own or not.
The artiste on his part, believes his people give him the support he needs, however, there’s more room for improvement.
He shared with Y97.9FM’s Chelsy Sey on the ‘Ryse N Shyne’ show.
“Everyone has a definition of what supporting your own means but then you can’t force someone to support you. I feel supported in a way but in my region, I expect more. Even though the support is not to my expectation, so far so good.”
I feel that Takoradi has been there for me from day one even though it is not from everyone. And in everything you do, you wouldn’t get everybody supporting you. It is normal”
Ayesem adds that at the right time, he will be “hailed by all”.
For now, it appears the singer is relaxing in the attention he gets from his fans as he shares: “One thing about being a musician or a celebrity is that you inspire people and if you see some of these people, it makes you feel that people have seen your hard work. They get inspired. People meet you and tell you how inspired they are from your music. This encourages you as an artiste to work harder”.
