Rapper E.L explains his extended absence from the music industry by claiming that after winning the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Award for Artiste of the Year, he became bored with making songs.
He said that he didn’t have a strong desire to continue making songs.
“My attitude and personality are that when I am hooked on something, I do it to perfection then I find something else to do. That is my composition. After Artiste of the Year, the truth of the matter is I just got bored with the whole thing. I just didn’t feel taken aback or wild about everything,” he said on the Daybreak Hitz show.
When Andy asked if he felt complacent, he said, “complacent has a negative connotation to it, but it wasn’t that.”
E.L. claims he took a sabbatical for himself but realized Ghanaians don’t like singers that prefer to take pauses. E.L. is now promoting his newest EP, “The Teacher.”
“I just took a break from the limelight, not music. Consistency is important for an artiste and I have learned it. I have realized Ghanaian fans are insatiable. You have to keep it coming and I didn’t expect that,” he said.
