Double will storm the nation - Icon Dada
Sprouting dancehall artiste Icon Dada has revealed the he’s about to storm the music industry with his EP album dubbed “Double”.
Speaking to host of Service Drive, Official Tau, Mr Lewis Songose opined that his EP which features known artistes such as Yaw Tog, revealed the ordeals he’s gone through before he made it to the top.
“I’ve gone through a lot of hell in the hands of someso called producers before I got to this level as they took my money but never made me see the light of the day in the music industry. I mean as far as 2004” he noted.
He however noted that his breakthrough is a conscious effort to prove doubters wrong.
“I paused for a while to pursue my education and anchor myself in my career as an agric extension officer to raise enough funds to set up my studio and invite ready-to-do sound engineers to produce my songs. And my debut song “Some buoy” was produced by King Dee in my own studio, of which it is a hit” Icon opined.
Touching on how complicated to being a civil servant and a musician could be, the rudimental dancehall act revealed “I have developed a good working relationship with my boss to understand my situations suit both careers. At times I work overtime to meet my key performance indicators. My producers also understand my situation and they are very cooperative”
Icon expressed profound gratitude for the support from the media and his patrons but pontificated that, he’s the sole sponsor of his career.
“I’m really grateful to the media and my fans, but the biggest the challenge is that I am supporting myself in all spheres of my career. It’s my fervent hope that an investor in or around will come in and put me up there. I’ll be very grateful, but until then I’ll box on with my last breath. The light is just a few meter ahead of the tunnel” he opined.
The poetic luminary expressed worry about how politicians and the elite class are pilfering and milking the marginalized.
“ I feel worried about how our leaders, irrespective of their status, take advantage of the weak and keep us impoverished. We need to rise up and ask for more from our leaders ‘cos we have contributed enough of our quota” He hinted.
