Former Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan says he doesn’t see himself as a musician.
It is no doubt that Gyan has featured in most highlife songs with his friend Castro which became a hit many years ago.
He told Accra-based Joy FM on Monday that although he had a couple of hits and earned awards, he doesn’t consider himself a musician because he is not doing it professionally.
“Although I did a couple of songs with my brother Castro…we had a couple of hits and won a couple of awards and stuff, but I still haven’t considered myself as a musician because it is a professional thing,” Gyan said.
“If I have a professional then I have to wake up like 5 am and go to a studio but this is not the case. There are more dedicated to what they do.
“Every time they are in the studio, you know they sleep there sometimes like the way in football. I just wake up and go to the beach and run. I haven’t considered myself like that because I don’t even go to the studio unless I decide to do one track with somebody, and then we go to the studio and do it,” he added.
He revealed that it is his goal of putting some up-and-coming artists into the limelight.
“They are a lot of things there. There is this up-and-coming Dancehall artiste Ky-Mani who is Afro. He is very talented, I will try to help him and then we do something together it’s on the line,” Gyan stressed.
