Nigerian soul musician and songwriter Chike has discussed why he has resisted issuing singles on a regular basis.
The singer revealed that he has scaled back on being an artist and has embraced music from an executive standpoint in a recent interview with Dadaboy Ehiz on Apple Music 1.
He said “I have toned down being an artist, and look at it from an executive perspective. The way music is here, it’s expensive – whether you’re pushing singles or projects, a lot of money is going to go down. I have been independent for the longest – you know I have my team, I have my people who handle management but I’m basically independent – and with singles, it’s still going to be money spent and you just don’t know for sure what the market wants to listen to.
“So, if I’m going to spend $50,000 in pushing an album, I’m better spending on doing that than $20,000 on trying out different singles that just might not work. I mean as an artist it works for me, don’t get me wrong, but then I’m not the one who’s going to consume the music. It’s more of an executive decision,”.
