Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Bubbly Ghanaian musician, Akosua Agyapong, has called on young

musicians to focus their energies on developing "the talent" and shun

the gimmicks that gives them sudden popularity.

According to the singer who has been an active music icon for 25

years, "longevity" in the field is more guaranteed when there is "pure

talent" and creativity at play.

"I tell you what, people will offer you all kinds of advice, but in

the end of the day, it's creativity that speaks for years," she told

Morning Starr host, Kafui Dey.

"There was a time I was to perform at the Arts Center, and this guy

whothought I was shy and couldn't perform offered me something to

take. Something to give me more confidence but I didn't take it. I

went and performed to the awe of everyone. That's why I keep telling

the young ones, once you start taking something, you become dependent

on it forever.

"I told myself I wouldn't smoke, I wouldn't drink or go naked. I will

clothe myself, and still, here I am today. The talent supersedes

anything else," she stressed.

The Frema hitmaker, will be celebrating her 25th anniversary in music

with the support of some of Ghana's greatest musicians.

The concert which is scheduled for Saturday, May 30, at the Accra

International Conference Centre will see her mentor Nana Ampadu, the

evergreen rap originator – Gyedu Blay Ambolley, A.B. Crentsil, Rev.

Joe Beechem, MzVee, Edem, Becca, Amandzeba, Rex Omar, Daughters of

Glorious Jesus, Nana Ama McBrown, Sarkodie among others performing.
