Award-winning Ghanaian gospel musician and fashionista, Gifty Hopeson Adorye, popularly known as Empress Gifty, has revealed she would not be signing an up-and-coming artiste on her record label.
The ‘Jesus Be Too Much’ crooner, in a recent interview, said she would only train up-and-coming artistes when she decides to retire from the music industry.
She added that she needed ample time to be able to promote her artiste to the top to avoid any unnecessary competition.
“Oh of course, yes! But now I’m still doing music so when I retire from my music I will sign an artiste. Because two captains can never be on a ship.
“It is wrong and unadvisable for an artiste to sign his fellow artiste under his record label, it doesn’t help.
“So I like the way Lynx Entertainment is doing it, he put his career aside and building an image because it’s not right to compete with the young ones. He’ll compete with Kuami Eugene and the likes – his own artistes,” she said.
Gifty Adorye further explained that, if she signs up a new artist, he/she will grab all the shows for him/herself. Do you think when I have an artist under me and there is a show worth GH30,000, what will I do? So I case you hear I’m signing an artistic that means Empress has retired from music. So that I focus on the person and push him to where I want him to be she add.
Meanwhile Gifty Adorye is currently promoting her new single titled ‘Jesus Over Do’.
