|RICHIE MENSAH (CEO OF LYNX ENTERTAINMENT)|
Ghana’s eye of the future in terms of music and the meaning to their company name LYNX, is now going through a serious changing faces moment in their career as a label losing all their major money making artistes.
Lynx Entertainment which was the hottest label some years back counting all the GMA awards to their credit and the championing of a genre called ‘crunk’ which could not stand the test of time in Ghana is now struggling to keep their heads above water in the music system.
Why wouldn’t the CEO, Richie now Richie Mensah release a single called ‘Changing Faces’ because indeed his company is going through trying times because loosing all your major artiste under your label could be a big blow just like ASEM’s first hit single ‘give me blow’.
The latest to walk out from the lynx camp is their heavily tagged first lady of Lynx Eazzy of ‘GO GO Wind’ single featuring Jupitar of which Jupitar did justice to her on her own song.
Reports said , Lynx entertainment ‘hand over Eazzy to KOD’, so then we ask, when was the last time Lynx handed over some artiste to another producer while all their formal artistes hardly recorded with another beat maker apart from Richie when they where with Lynx.
If truth is told, the label after losing ASEM (who is now doing awesome well with the new single ‘Bye Bye’ ft Kwabena Kwabena) and, OJ Blaq became weak in the system, no wonder Richie Mensah could only say on the Jamming Show on Viasat 1 with Benny that Lynx strong hold is building and introducing fresh artistes.
The simple truth is Lynx entertainment is changing faces trying to find its feet again in the system and who knows they might win another Ahpro pop song of the year again with Zigi been the only artiste left in the camp or may be with Richie Mensah who of course doubles as an artiste plus beat maker.
Eyes were on ASEM when he left but is now doing well, Eazzy after so many denial that she was not going to leave the Lynx camp is now out, so what was the delay for, well now eyes are on first of, Lynx Entertainment since Richie said their strong hold is introducing new artistes, we are waiting for another hit artiste and second of, is Eazzy, we hope she does well with KOD, which we trust she will.
