Ghanaian rapper and musician from Bogoso, Fameye, has revealed the plans for his latest single, ‘Not God’, articulating a nuanced perspective on the lifespan of this music release.
Addressing the longevity of his musical endeavours to Berla Mundi on the Day Show on TV3, Fameye highlighted that not every song’s impact is meant to be immediate.
“Every song we put out there is a good one and if it doesn’t make an impact now it’s a matter for the future,” he disclosed
He emphasized that the timeline for reaping the rewards of a song’s artistic expression and value can extend beyond the present moment.
Citing his recently released track ‘Not God,’ Fameye revealed that his aspirations for its success are aimed at a time frame of 5 to 10 years from now.
“I have a song I released it like 12 days ago my target is like 10 years time. The target for ‘Not God’ is to be big 10 years from now,” he indicated.
Fameye who won the 2022 Songwriter of the Year at the VGMAs noted that even if a song doesn’t gain immediate traction, its value might become evident in the years to come.
Berla Mundi, the host of the show, was quick to point out the substantial timeframe of Fameye’s vision.
But Fameye in response explained his reasoning for embracing a long-term approach, stating, “I know we are in the time of trends, but Peter [referring to himself] doesn’t want to see it that way. Time evolves. Gen-Z will go and the old school folks will come. As long as I’m not dead, I am cool.”
The song has quickly gained momentum and earned him praise for its artistry and impact. Produced by the talented Ghanaian producer, Liquid Beatz, “Not God” boasts a seamless fusion of infectious beats and Fameye’s mesmerizing vocals.
The lyrics of the song focus on the limited ability of humans emphasizing that no matter how good you are, you can be replaced. It’s also a clarion call to live in the moment and be present.
