Ghanaian rapper, E.L, has opened up about his absence from the music scene in a recent interview on the Big Conversation on 3Music TV. The rapper attributed his hiatus to a desire for greater control over his art, as he often found himself with many ideas but unable to execute them as he envisioned. He also expressed a need to break free from the repetitive nature of the industry and try new things, but felt limited by the structures around him at the time.
E.L also touched on the struggles faced by artistes in Ghana, particularly in terms of expanding their fan bases and reaching new markets. When asked if he would consider looking outside his current environment for success, he responded that Ghanaians were unlikely to help him at this point.
While E.L's absence from the music scene may have left fans wondering, his candid interview sheds light on the challenges faced by artistes in Ghana and the importance of creative control. E.L's dedication to his art and willingness to try new things are sure to be appreciated by fans as he prepares to make his comeback. Reflecting on his own experiences, E.L advised new artistes to "cool down" and avoid making the same mistakes he did. He also announced that he will be returning with the BAR series and a new concert, along with other upcoming projects.
