I won’t sign any artist until I retire from music - Empress Gifty Adorye

Award-winning gospel musician Gifty Adorye has revealed that she will only sign an upcoming artiste after she has retired from music.

According to the Aseda singer, this will let her have ample time to be able to promote her artiste to the top.

She made this known in an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa when she was asked about her support for an upcoming artiste.

“Oh of course, yes! But now I’m still doing music so when I retire from my music I will sign an artiste. Because two captains can never be on a ship.” She said.

Gifty explained that, “It is wrong and unadvisable for an artiste to sign his fellow artiste under his record label, it doesn’t help. So I like the way Lynx Entertainment is doing it, he put his career aside and building an image because it’s not right to compete with the young ones. He’ll compete with Kuami Eugene and the likes – his own artistes. He’ll grab all the shows for himself; do you think when I have an artiste under me and there is a show worth GHS30,000 – what am I going to do? So me, when you hear I’m signing an artiste that means Empress, I have retired from music. So I will give my focus to the person, I’ll push the person to where I want the person to go.”

Meanwhile, Gifty noted that, she is ever ready to support any upcoming artiste with their songs.

Empress Gifty Adorye is currently promoting her new single titled ‘Jesus Over Do’ which is a song off her upcoming album.
