Kuami Eugene, a highlife musician, has counseled underground artists to make as many mistakes as they can at this stage in their careers.
He believes that rising artists have the opportunity to make a lot of mistakes now and fix them before it’s too late.
On Friday, Kuami Eugene delivered the advice while hanging out on Joy FM’s Drivetime Show.
The ‘Angela’ singer took advantage of the chance to explain why underground artists face different pressures than their mainstream peers.
He added that underground acts are under little to no pressure to be masters of their art. As a result, when compared to mainstream performances, underground artists have a lower expectation of perfection.
“People have different methods to communicate how they feel,” Kuami Eugene stated, “so I’m just reminding every underground act out there, that this is the time to make mistakes and repair them, because once you become Kuami Eugene [a mainstream act], they judge you.” However, even if you’re an underground act, you can learn from your mistakes.”
He mentioned how some big artists struggle to write hit songs, claiming that they don’t get a second opportunity because they are already famous.
Kuami Eugene’s new song, ‘Bunker,’ has all the makings of a hit song, owing to all the mistakes and lessons he learned as an underground act.
