Veteran musician Tic Tac now Tic has thrown shots at young artists in the music industry, describing them as disrespectful.
Speaking in an interview on Citi TV’s Upside Down show, the revealed that the upcoming artists show him attitude and expect him to initiate pleasantries when they meet- which is unconventional in his opinion.
He stated that such behavior is uncommon in the Nigerian music business and went on to elaborate, saying:
“Tuface will see me and shout my name. If he is watching, he will tell you, he will be laughing and say that’s true. But Ghanaian artiste who just sprang will see you, pose and expect you to say hi, and sometimes if you don’t, he may even go out and say you don’t value them.
“I don’t want to mention names because when you do that, it becomes a bit personal. But I am just saying that if you don’t know me, I don’t know you,” he added.
TiC was also chastised by the organisers of the annual Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for ignoring him and other veterans in the industry, despite being one of the leading musicians chosen for the first occasion.
“You can’t do Ghana Music Awards and not send me an invitation. I am not the King of Ghana music, but I deserve some kind of monumental positioning in this country. If you check the first Ghana Music Awards that was ever held, I was a performer. So history has captured me for Ghana Music Awards,” he said.
