Harrison Tare Okiri, better known as Harrysong , has been questioned for signing Lami Phillips , a mother of two , to his record company , Altetplate Music .
However , while speaking with Sunday Scoop, Harrysong said music had nothing to do with age and that he was convinced of Phillips ’ talent .
He explained , “ She is full of talent and she does good music .
If an artiste understands music , it will be easier for one to relate to him or her .
It is not about the age; it is about what she has to offer . Her music relates to people of different ages .
“ Don ’ t forget that I am also a songwriter too. I saw something special in her and I believe it is something that every other person will enjoy too .
2 Baba is an older artiste , but we still enjoy his music . ”
Revealing his plans to sign more artistes , Harrysong stated , “We will still sign songwriters and producers as well because we want to give people behind the scenes an opportunity .
We have signed Lami and we are unveiling her soon . We have two other artistes we plan to unveil too .
One of the artistes is less than 20 years old and he can produce and sing.
“ We look at the ability of an individual , not the age .
Do you know how many young people that have sent in their songs and I didn ’ t like them?
They will tell you they can sing, but cannot deliver .
If you see an older person who is doing well, it will be unwise to ignore her .
We are a music company ; it is about the music first before the business . ”
