Coast artist loses all his songs after producer’s computer gets ‘stolen’
Imagine being an upcoming artist, going to record your music only to lose all of it because your producer’s computer allegedly got stolen.
That is what happened to Coast-based artist Omar aka Om Daniel.
The gospel artist turned actor recorded three songs with a producer who told him to go pick the recording later, but on the day he went to pick the recording, the said producer told him he lost the songs because the computer got stolen.
“Nyimbo nilipiga 2008 lakini producer akanizingua kiasi. Nilipiga nyimbo kama tatu lakini zikapotea hivyo hivyo. Namlaumu producer kwa sababu hio siku mimi aliniambia niende nikachukue nyimbo zangu, nilipoenda pale akaniambia kwamba kompyuta zimeibiwa,” the artist narrated.
“Fulani anaitwa Imani pale Mariakani,” he added.
“I did some songs in 2008 but the producer played me. I recorded three songs which just varnished. I blame the producer because on the day he told me to go pick the songs, I got there just for him to tell me that the computer was stolen,” he said.
The experience was so bad that he gave up on singing and has just recently taken it up again.
“I recorded some songs in Bamburi yesterday and I hope they will be out by next week,” he said.
