For everything that come, always comes with advantages and disadvantages, whether good or bad. But what really matters is how many people it will benefit – This brings in the issue of the Zambian Music Awards, lately there has been a lot of Commotion on whether Zambian Music Awards organizers should increase the money they put on top of winning their ward. But to come to think of it, if this fund and any other payments that involve performing art were increased, all of us would have had a classical smile on our faces.
Assuming the artists increased how much they charge for any performing act they are hired to do, a lot of departments that manages to render services to make sure the artist produces quality stuff would benefit. Oh yes.. Quality music is what everyone wants to listen to and for such music there is always someone responsible for that, and this is Person is called a producer. Producers lately have been complaining on how recording artists fail to reach the prices of their services and big artist always salvaging for free stuff – that issue would be solved and It would give producers interests in doing more research in production, also an opportunity to increase the prices of their services accordingly because they will be sure that artists will afford and this will create employment to more youths – Same goes to music video producers it will motivate them to come up with well scripted music videos for artists which will help in the growth of Zambian arts to the international export, Hence they will attract more potential investors because they will develop an interest of knowing which country is giving birth to such brilliant art… Zambia, Ofcourse!!, at the end of the day everyone will benefit.
Coming to media firms, they will be appreciating tones of cash because of the grand amount of advertising requests and work load from the artists and not forgetting you as a viewer – you will be blessed with professional quality sounds, pro live performances and more.
More money in artists’ pockets.
