‘I haven’t considered myself a musician’ – Asamoah Gyan
Former Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan, who featured in highlife artiste Castro’s ‘African girls’ hit song, says he does not consider himself a musician.
As he is affectionately called, Baby Jet explained that though he loves music, he does not consider himself a musician because he believes that being a musician is something professional.
“Although I did a couple of songs with my brother Castro…we had a couple of hits and won a couple of awards and stuff, but I still haven’t considered myself as a musician because it is a professional thing,” he said on the Super Morning Show on Monday.
According to him, being in the music industry necessitates commitment and even more hard work.
“If I have a professional then I have to wake up like 5 am and go to a studio but this is not the case. There are more dedicated to what they do.
“Every time they are in the studio, you know they sleep there sometimes like the way in football. I just wake up and go to the beach and run. I haven’t considered myself like that because I don’t even go to the studio unless I decide to do one track with somebody, and then we go to the studio and do it,” he stressed.
When asked if he was working on anything for Ghanaians, he revealed that he is currently working on promoting some up-and-coming artists in the industry.
“They are a lot of things there. There is this up-and-coming Dancehall artiste Ky-Mani who is Afro. He is very talented, I will try to help him and then we do something together it’s on the line,” he said.
