I Tapped Into The Positive Part Of Corona Virus Pandemic – Mansa Jabulani , Zlatan’s Manager.
While other celebrities might be moaning under the heaviness of the COVID-19 pandemic which had tossed the world into turmoil and vulnerability, Zanku Records director, Damilola Alonge aka Mansa Jabulani says God planned the corona virus for him.
Jabulani said on Saturday Beats that “I have to be thankful because the present challenge (COVID-19) facing the world has not really affected my work adversely. Instead, it has been a blessing to my music career. God designed COVID 19 for me. I glued to the positive part of the pandemic.
I have been working for 10 years, only for God to answer my prayer during the COVID period. I can’t say about others in the industry but all I know is some people’s careers aren’t moving as they are supposed to be. My major fear is that some artistes would have to start all over again after the pandemic. There are always good and bad sides to every misfortune.
The song that went viral titled ‘Of La La’ by Rahman Jago featuring Zlatan and Jamo Piper, was released at the height of the corona virus pandemic. Funnily enough, when I was making the beat, I saved the file as ‘corona virus’. Today, the rest is history.”
Jabulani also reiterated that he was not perturbed that music producers didn’t get the exposure or prominence that artistes got for their works.
He claimed, “When you talk about publicity, it depends on individual perspectives. As for me, I prefer my works to be everywhere, rather than my face. But if you talk about getting credit, we don’t get the credit we deserve because behind every successful artiste, there’s a music producer working behind the scenes.”
“I would definitely not be happy if a song I produced gets an award and I’m not recognized. However, the fact that my craft paved the way (for the artiste) gives me inner joy.”
