“A nomination is a win itself. It’s a great achievement and I’m really proud that my works are being recognized without doubts”, he said.
The young producer sees the nomination as a motivation which will give him a reason to keep pushing dispite all the difficulties faced in the industry.
Alleviate Beats described how times have changed and how difficult it has now become in the music industry to point out and correct mistakes since the laws and regulations are no longer respected.
“As musicians we now live to put food on the table since the rules and regulations are of no use”, he said.
As a producer Chikwamba calls for producers to be given their credit and suggests that producers should have a committee which represents them so that they can not be taken for granted.
“Producers are no longer valued yet they are the ones who take care of most of the recording, directing, mixing and mastering task. There should be a committee to represent music producers, we are being taken for granted”, said Alleviate Beats.
Alleviate Beats has worked with artists such as Freeman, Seh Calaz, Killer T, Brity Yonly and he wishes to work with Jah Prayzah who inspires his sound.
