2011 winner of “Stars Of The Future,” Immanuel Emmanuel is calling on organizers of music reality shows to sign long management contracts with winners to help develop their career to a greater heights. He is also calling on them to increase the cash, recording and management contract to improve the well-being of the artistes.
Speaking to Kwesi Kumah-Ntim also known as Papa Sey on Maxx FM, he applauded the organizers of “Stars of the Future”; Charter House, for giving him the platform to be on various shows but urged them to sign long contracts with winners to develop them fully. He says in his case, he had a contract of recording two songs and shooting one video within 2011 and 2012 which were also included in the cash prize. He believes the length of time is not good enough to bring out the best in the upcoming artistes.
The “Afro rock” artiste says his style is new in Ghana and believes that with determination, Ghanaians will jump at his music.
Speaking on his plans in the industry, Immanuel Emmanuel says he wants to be at the Grammy’s in the next 5 years.
He added that he wants to be one of the biggest artistes in Africa. “I want to be one of the biggest artistes in Africa. I want to be a big artiste in Africa because I want to represent my origin,” he explained.
He is currently embarking on a campaign to sensitize Ghanaians to help develop the country. He is admonishing the youth against involving themselves in immoral practices like Sakawa.
