Even though she is not doing commercial music, soul singer, Aramide, is not doing badly in her chosen genre as she has been picking awards here and there.
Even as commercial music is trending and artistes are making more money singing such hip songs, the pretty artiste said she is not going to change her genre, no matter what.
Speaking to Saturday Beats recently, Aramide said her kind of music is not boring.
“I still get invited to perform at gigs every weekend. I am not sure my music is boring. Soul music is for the mature minds. I don’t make music just for myself. I make music for everybody. What matters most is that people listen to my music. Soul music is not noise music, it is music from the soul,” she said.
Aramide, who is set to perform at the second edition of The Alternative Music concert in Lagos later this month, said her kind of music is for people who are not interested in commercial music.
Talking about the upcoming concert, Collins Akpapunam, CEO of Efizzi Worldwide Limited, organisers of the show, said he wanted to use the concert to promote alternative music, which is mainly known as soul music.
“We want to give people who sing such songs the chance to have a platform to showcase their talents. It is not everybody that loves noisy songs. Some people also love to listen to songs that touch the soul, songs from the heart. That is what the show is all about.”
The show will also feature soul singers like MICasa from South Africa, Chinny, Lindsey and Tomi Owo.
