Ishak Spark, a Ghanaian musical artiste, has explained why he does not like to include other artists on his songs.
He stated that the lack of support amongst musicians is one of the reasons he does not cooperate with other artists, despite his desire to do so.
He does not believe in categorizing artists and believes that they are all creative individuals who amuse their followers in their own unique way.
He stated that a lack of industry support is hindering the business from growing, making cooperation harder.
“I do collaborations but not as much as expected because it will depend on how the person you’re collaborating with treats you or makes you feel,” he remarked in an interview with Her Ladyship on Shobiz TV ”Afro Section”
He believes music has to do with feelings and personally, “I’ve been chasing a couple of people to work with and majority of them keep giving me excuses. Some tell me they don’t have time, others also just tell me they’re not interested and some also just ignore me.”
Listing some artistes he has reached out to who ignored him he said, “I have tried to reach out to Sarkodie a couple of times but it proved futile.”
Ishak Spark however mentioned that, he understands the kind of pressure on the multi-talented artiste, as everyone’s wish to have a song with him “so if you text him and you don’t get through to him, you should understand,” he said.
He believes the music industry can do better than it already is if all artistes come together and try to push themselves through collaborations and also giving themselves the expected support they all need.
