Liberian Singer Georgee B Talks About His Trouble Relationship: 'I have sacrificed a 12yrs relationship for my music'
The talented artist, Georgee B, one of the few artists to sing with a live band at the Liberian Music Awards, speaks exclusively about sacrifices, and a possible end to a 12yrs committed relationship.Georgee B: The world encourages you to follow your dreams and live your passion, but we are not given the instructions on how to navigate obstacles along the way. Within the last five years, I have been through hell and back. Now that I am back on my feet, I am losing the one thing I have been trying to protect, my relationship. Few years ago, I quit my job to do music full time and ended up losing everything. My family and I were homeless. My girlfriend and kids had to live with friends, why I hustled to get back on my feet. We relocated from Minnesota to North Dakota, where I found a decent job that landed me back on my feet. What I did not realized, in the midst of it all, I was losing the love of my life.
What furstrates me the most, I have made all these sacrifices to build a music career, and I am not getting the credit that is due. I am the original creator of the New Age Gbema gerne, but yet Dj's are putting out New Age Gbema mixed tapes and non of my musics are on them. These award organazitions have New Age Gbema category, but non of my songs nominated. That is disrespectful.
One thing for sure, I am not giving up on my career, music is my passion, music is my life. I just need the world to know, the phrase "a struggling artist" is real. I have been living it for the passed five years.
