Rapper Joey B has advised the likes of Stonebwoy, Sarkodie and Shatta Wale who own record labels and have signed other artists onto it to always seek the betterment of the artists who come on board.
Explaining his position better in an interview with Jay Foley on Hitz FM, he clearly stated that one must not sign artists just to earn praise but must do so because he genuinely wants the signee to progress.
For me, signing artistes on to your own label isn’t a bad idea but for me, don’t sign artistes to make yourself look good, genuinely sign them because you want their betterment. Because if you don’t take care, after the artistes blow big, that artiste might disappoint you and you would be very hurt.
He however praised Stonebwoy for going the extra mile to help Kelvyn Boy and Okailey Verse (OV), his signees on Burninton Music Group.
Sometimes when you sign artistes, it relegates you, and that’s why i love Stonebwoy. Despite the fact that he signed artistes, he still makes time for himself and the other artistes; look at Kelvyn Boy and OV now.
