Coach Freeman, a renowned Ghanaian songwriter and vocal coach has opined that the habit of miming by some artists is tantamount to fraud.
He submitted this opinion on 3 FM’s drive belt programme, where he spoke on the need for a musician to subject their voice to adequate training.
“When one has a great voice , the person is capable of conveying feelings, and information in the right proportion,” he noted to host Giovani Caleb.
Freeman chastised musicians who use the aid of voice effects such as auto tune, saying that every musician who can’t perform live on stage without the aid auto tune effects is a “fraudster.”
Miming simply means pretending to sing, so why would a paid musician engage in such act of pretence?” he quizzed.
Further stressing his displeasure at this habit, Coach Freeman mentioned the likes of Samini , Sarkodie and Efya as among a handful of Ghanaian musicians who have grown by training their voices and weild control of their voices and on any day deliver on live stages.
“Music goes beyond writing , recording and having a nice music video,” he added.
