Sierra Leone’s Historical Music Producer Warns Musicians

In the cause of reincarnating the love and respect for Sierra Leone musicians in the country, the nation’s youngest music producer and studio engineer, Saidu Kanu has said that music is one of the best money making talents and warns all musicians using music as a means of promoting conflict among people to desist from it.

In an exclusive interview with this medium, the genius said entertainment is the second fastest growing industry in the world, adding that Sierra Leonean musicians should be conscious of the role they play in society.

A descendant of Magbonkeni town in Makeni, north of Sierra Leone, he disclosed that he was born 30th June, 1992, and that he lost his father, Mr. Bobson Samuel Kanu at the age of twelve and his mother, Margaret Koroma two years later.

He revealed that he was later adopted by Daniel Sesay popularly known as Dutch Green, the elder brother of David Sesay also known as Dave Mic, producer and engineer, Forensic Studio in Freetown.

As an orphan adapted to a brother of an engineer, he said that he found the engineering profession as a career, adding that the interaction with musicians and artistes generally will create for him a pace to advice musicians who preach words for the help of orphans and the less-privileged children in the country.

Kanu further said that he has produced many popular musicians since he took over from Dave Mic and helping Mr. Lamin Othello aka Big & Broad in the studio.

In the cause of producing musicians, Saidu Kanu said that he has been refusing musicians who intend to sing rude lyrics in their songs.

“I wonder how certain engineers and radio presenters feel when they promote musicians with rude songs,” he said, adding, “the promotion of the so-called hip-hop rude musicians has contributed in the relegation of Sierra Leonean music in the market.”

“Musicians like General Sfano, Willo-Wize, Ceejay, Wahid, Famous, among others, are good examples of a better musicians in the country,” he said, adding “though they find it difficult in the pursuance of their music cause, they are considered a role model in society.”

He further called on all journalists and marketers of local music to help bring the minds of our musicians to positive thinking with no compromise.
