2C Stresses Liberian Music Business is no longer a child’s play






A U.S.-based Liberian artiste, Romeo Mulbah, known affectionately as 2C has called on musicians to raise the bar. He said there is a need for Liberian musicians to produce quality music, if they must rule the world’s music scene.
Mulbah, who spoke to reporters at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) upon his arrival, said many musicians in the country should be mindful of the fact that the profession is no longer a child’s play.  He stressed the need for musicians to embrace professionalism as a code of conduct.
“I am unhappy with the way things are going on in the music world as the music market is daily flooded with unpleasant music. All hands must be on deck to get rid of this menace, which has eaten deep into the growth of the Liberian music industry.
“As long as you believe in yourself, work hard and chase your dream, you will become successful in life,” he said.
The Liberian international star explained that he was 12-years old when he first met his manager, only identified as Charles. He said at the aged of 5 he left the country for neighboring Ivory Coast, where his love for music started.“I am trying to put Liberia on top of music on the international scene,” he said.
2C said Liberian musicians should get out of the box. “If you want to be recognized globally, you got to spread your wings as much as possible,” he said.
According to him, Liberia has talented individuals but “lots of Liberian musicians are not recognized globally.”
Mulbah indicated that he was scheduled to visit Ghana, Senegal, and Gambia but chose to first come to Liberia, adding, “there is no place like home.”
Touching on his latest song “Mr. Mechanic”, Mulbah said the song tries to send out a message that whenever a boyfriend breaks the heart of a girl she will definitely find another guy to mend her broken heart. Akon recently signed the artist to his record label Kulture, and the deal is expected to last for four years.
“It has been my dream throughout my life to sing alongside Akon,” Mulbah said.
The Liberian international singer described Akon as a god of music in Africa, stressing, “everybody looks up to him.”
Following the deal with Akon, Mulbah said he had become the happiest person on earth, noting, “when an artist is attached to Akon, more doors are open.”
Mulbah called on Liberian musicians to work harder, produce quality music and put aside jealousy. While in the country, 2C met with Minister Len Eugene Nagbe and Ambassador Judy Endee, Liberia’s cultural ambassador. He also met other local artists and engage in some philanthropic work in Bong, where he hails from.
