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.

Open Letter to President George Weah

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,

and in order to fully empower the young generation, the Liberian Entertainment Industry must be included. 

Arts and Culture has played a critical role in keeping our young citizens gainfully employed.  From the music industry to film industry to the fashion industry, this generation has benefitted from the employment opportunities arts and culture provides. 
To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
