Popular Tanzanian cover Star Singer Mathew Isaiah commonly known as Gold Boy has quit the musical scene due to what he termed as lack of support from industry players.
Gold Boy made the statement while on an online engagement with publisher Millard Ayo. “kutopata support au kwa kukosa support ukasema mziki siutaki tena kama mimi inafikia hatua mtu unaweza uka give up, Mimi nime give up, kwenye mziki nime give up,” he said.
Working As A Casual In A Soap Processing Company
The distraught Star gifted with a mellow voice is now eking a living by working as a casual labourer in a soap processing company known as Sido in Kigoma. “kutokupata support kumetupelekea sisi wasanii wengine tubaki tunafanya kazi zingine tofauti kukata sabuni everyday, haina jinsi hauwezi kufanya kingine tofauti na kufanya kazi ambayo itakwenda ikatuingizia kipato” He added.
Harmonize Offered An Empty Promise
Gold Boy’s voice has made him rub shoulders with leading Tanzanian artist’s including Konde Gang’s President Harmonize though he says nothing meaningful came from him except an empty promise.
“Tunakosa support kwa watu wakubwa example nichukulie mfano mtu kama Harmonize nimewahi kuonana naye si mara moja nafikiria, nimewahi kuonana naye lakini mpaka leo imekuwa ni mambo ya ‘nenda bwana mdogo tutaonana’ so cha msingi ni kwamba tunaomba support kwa nyinyi watu ambao mnapenda mziki mkali, mnapenda mziki mzuri, kipaji tunacho, vipaji vipo tena vingi sana ila support ndio tumekosa “he continued.
He went ahead and revealed that he fell out with his initial sponsor when he opted to record his original compositions unlike doing covers from other artist’s songs.
“Tulizozana kitu kidogo sana katika hali ya kutafuta why kwa nini nisifanye cha kwangu huo ndio ulikuwa mzozo wetu,” he added further.
He’s still hopeful to bouncing back big in the musical scene as he sent word out to leading recording labels headed by top Tanzanian Star’s,from Alikiba’s Kings Music, Harmonize’s Konde Music Worldwide and Diamond’s Wasafi to come to his aid.
