, ‘My music is not for TikTok, my craft is bigger than trends’ – Fameye, Frederick Nuetei

Ghanaian musician, Peter Famiyeh Bozah, popularly known as Fameye has added his voice to the ongoing discussions on the impact of TikTok on the Ghanaian music industry.

Last weekend on UTV’s ‘UNITED SHOWBIZ’ show which featured popular TikTok stars, Asantewaa, one of Ghana’s most followed TikTokers said:

“That’s why I say that now it doesn’t matter how long you have played your music game. when you drop a song now it is not about your craft unless you bring it to us, if not you will have to sing your song alone,” she said and Kesse added, “we are the board of directors, you have to bring it to us”.

Her comments attracted backlash for her and her colleagues from music lovers and some players in the Ghana music industry.

Sharing his opinion on the topic in an interview with Zionfelix, the ‘PRAISE’ hitmaker revealed he is in complete disagreement with the statements made and that the music craft is a much more serious business than following trends.

He said:

My music is not for TikTok and TikTok is not the main platform that makes my music go big. 

Music is bigger than TikTok, loud music doesn’t automatically make a song good. Because a song went viral on TikTok doesn’t mean the artist is extremely good.

Too much power has been vested in these TikTokers for them to be passing these kinds of comments. 

The comments were distasteful, and I wasn’t pleased to hear them. Unless she was playing and said it as a joke in the heat of the moment.

On whether he had ever paid a TikToker to promote his music on the platform, Fameye responded:

I do my personal videos and share them on social media. That’s how I’ve been promoting my songs since 2019. I don’t create TikTok challenges for my songs, I don’t dance to promote my songs. 

If you don’t hear my songs on TikTok, doesn’t mean they are not a hit on the streets.

I have never paid any TikToker to deliberately promote and make my song a hit. I have however sent the monetary value of thanksgiving to some TikTokers who used my songs in the videos voluntarily.

In concluding his remarks, the VGMA ‘Songwriter Of The Year’ said:

When did TikTok come? With or without it, artists are going to work and reap the benefits of their work.

Do you agree with Fameye?
