Budding Ghanaian versatile artiste Ernest Adu-Gyamfi known in showbiz as Titan is cautioning fellow artiste and music lovers to also look out for messages in songs rather than choosing a song based on only beats.
According to the artiste he is a messenger to the music industry and has been gifted with a voice to touch on delicate issues in the society.
In an interview he said, “I am a messenger. I am beyond religion, language and other such barriers. My music is more than just words and melodies on a beat, it’s a message to my people who may be going through some issues at that very moment.”
Titan who started his music in church by playing the keyboard, said he always wanted a platform to express himself and music is the only craft that gives him that space.
The artiste said he does take pride on versatility, “I want to treat the music market to good music that goes beyond beats, music with a message…If we will move on as a people, we need to be cautious about what we consume and condone.”
He has worked with producers like Paq, Tbeat of DopeNation, Uglybeat and some other talented producers. Titan looks up to some great acts in Ghana worthy of emulation, like Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Samini, Sarkodie and to even some rising artiste.
He is inspired by nature, daily happenings, anything at all can trigger great music depending on his mood, he revealed. Titan also seem to be the ‘Falz’ in Ghana who wants to address pressing social issues in his songs
Titan has a new song dubbed ‘Over you’ which he featured two great crew from Ground up Chale, Quamina MP and Kofi Mole ,“This new one paints a more comic side of me, the song is actually an experience I had.
The title ‘Over You’ means you can’t handle it as in if you take my woman from me because of her beauty you’ll not be able to handle her flaws”.
