Colloque Singer DenG Quits Music: “I need to stop dreaming and face reality”

DenG
Liberia's hit maker, DenG, the first Liberian artist to sing R&B in Colloque, creating a new genre of music called Colloque & Rhythm, dropping hit songs like Kemah, Lappa Fine, Jue You Bad and many more, claimed that he is quitting the Music Industry and starting a business.  The artist who just returned to Liberia from a tour in Australia, posted this morning on his facebook page, "Starting my own business now and forgetting about this whole music thing because it's a total waste of time."
In an inbox chat, DenG told C Liberia clearly, "Every day is the same story, nothing changing, it's time to focus. I need to stop dreaming and face reality."

The reality is, the music industry is a hard road to travel.  It takes more than talent to survive, it takes determination, patience, and hard work.  Most can't handle the demands.  Music is normally not an overnight success. Many years of no money but more work.
