We Don’t Get Enough Credit –A&R Representative, Slasha

The fellow benefactor, AandRduty, Ayodeji Omotola, famously known as Sasha, has criticized the minimizing of the pretended by specialists and collection agents in the Nigerian music industry.

In a select meeting with Midweek Diversion, Slasha said tragically individuals were not giving sufficient credit to An and R delegates in Nigeria, adding that specialists and collection staff were liable for exploring promising performers and associating them with the perfect times to succeed in the music business.

He said, “Yet the same way they minimize the jobs lyricists play in the music business, the An and R delegates are behind the scenes working yet they don’t get sufficient credit. An and R delegates are the ones that scout for skilled craftsmen, train and foster them, assist them with tracking down their sounds and educate them on the sort concerning music to do to succeed in the music business.

“An and R is the delegate of what the market needs and the ability that is conveying it. Thus, we deal with the entire interaction. Thus, we are attempting to sharpen individuals including those doing An and R occupations that know nothing about their job, so satisfactory credit is given to us.”

Making sense of the difficulties experienced in the exhibition of An and R obligations, Slasha refered to individual contrasts as one of the difficulties.

He said, “Thus, the artiste and the An and R delegates need to adjust appropriately to direct against conflict. Each skilled artiste accepts their ability is sufficient and has a method of how he/she needs to make melodies and how he/she needs to be seen by the general population.

“In any case, the An and R delegate, who has an elevated perspective of the business, realizes that by going into the business with that sort of mentality and style, the artiste probably won’t succeed due to market requests.

“Thus, attempting to impact these abilities and make them see reasons is testing. This is beside the difficulties looked while pitching ability to finance managers, among others.”
