Gospel musician Michael Oware Sakyi, well known as OJ, is asking musicians to improve on what they are good at.
According to the Obi Nya W’aye singer, a musician could not be perfect in everything concerning his or her craft; hence, the need to improve on what he or she was good at.
“I am not a good dancer so when I want to do a choreography I engage the services of dancers to make my performance complete.
"The likes of Sonny Achiba, Reggie Rockstone and Slim Busterr are very good dancers and, therefore, don’t need dancers for their performances but Daddy Lumba, Ofori Amponsah and myself will need dancers to make our choreography complete,” he told the Daily Graphic recently.
He explained that once a musician was able to identify what he/she was good at and what weaknesses they had, he/she would be able to move his/her career to the next level.
“I put in a lot during my performance because I want to be always remembered when I leave the stage and Ghanaians love me for that. The comments I hear after my performances encourage me to do more and I always win because I have perfected my act,” he said.
It is the dream of every musician to get his/her songs being heard all over but for OJ impacting society remains his main priority.
“I am more than okay when my songs impact the society. The joy of hearing testimonies of how my songs have touched lives is my greatest joy.
I had a Muslim calling in on Joy FM some time ago that he prays with my songs every morning. The other day, a man confessed to me that he had plans of divorcing his wife but when he listened to my songs he aborted the idea,” he stated.
Known for songs such as Onipa Hia Mmoa, Koso Na Koso, Adom Ne Odo, Se Me Bue M’ano and Wana Mosi, OJ has not been active for a while now and said he had been away since 2016 planning something big.
“I study Ghanaians a lot and I calculate when to release a song. When you release too many songs Ghanaians tend to forget about you quickly but when you do your calculations well, you will always get them to enjoy your songs."
