“I will give him 40% for his performance.” – Trigmatic scores Obour’s MUSIGA administration.Speaking on Daybreak Hitz with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, Rocky said:
“I broke the bank to always make a record. I emptied my account…I know the legacy I was creating. I’ve been a guy who starts from zero most times and this has increased my portfolio and taken me to places I never thought I’d be.”
Rocky Dawuni also added that making money from music has become easier now because of streaming services adding that there was a need to break into the International market to reap more benefits.
“The music industry has changed. We recorded the songs as a product but now the game has changed. One big thing that worked for me was when my music was accepted on American TV and films. I got video games and TV shows patronising my songs and I broke that world with royalties and public rights. Now streaming has become the main way of income and live performances,” he added.
