English does not necessarily make music pleasant - Kuami Eugene claims

English does not necessarily make music pleasant - Kuami Eugene claims

Lynx Entertainment signee, Kuami Eugene says any good music should not be limited to English only.

According to the highlife singer, a lot of people crazily enjoy great music in other languages without any understanding of the lyrics.

He claims that many people enjoy African music, without really understanding the lyrics.

“There are a lot of African songs we don’t understand but still jam to.”

“I believe music goes far regardless ergo, you have to perform excellent music, and once it sounds nice people jump on it.”Kuami Eugene told Rev. Erskine on Y107.9FM.

According to Kuami, the language barrier always makes it difficult for artists to break into new music markets.

“If you’re able to break through that barrier, then you can do the O2 arena and other places because those coming to watch you want to sing along, and if they don’t understand anything about the music it’s quite difficult.”

“The fact that they use a lot of pidgin in their music and because it’s English, people understand what’s being said.''

 ''So, when it’s played somewhere, it doesn’t have to be explained because they can understand everything being said in the song.” 

It’s good but if you really want to get on the international market you have to do something they’ll understand and that means adding a little of what they can relate to.” He concluded.
