We don’t care about shows, we make enough money from online streams- R2bees


Ghanaian music duo, R2bees has always done things differently.

They hardly promote their music like other artists do, they do not care about awards and now they have disclosed that they do not scuffle for gigs because online streaming of their music makes them enough money.

Paedae, who was speaking in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat stated that they never force themselves to be on shows.

“Bola, you know something? R2bees, we don’t really care about shows, performance gigs naa, when it comes our way, fine, we would go and play but forcing ourselves to be on every stage is a no-no for us,” he said.

“We make lots of money from online streams, we have crazy numbers when it comes to online streams, and so we are comfortable with the money that comes from the streaming of our songs on this streaming platforms. To everyone that goes to stream our songs, we are so grateful. Musicians out there should take streaming very serious,” he added.

When asked by Bola Ray why their Nigerian counterparts seem to be far ahead with their crafts, Paedae stated:

“Nigeria is huge in comparison, and it is making Ghanaians feel our musicians are not going anywhere. Take Nigeria out, and you would realise GH musicians are actually putting in the work. Just look at the population of Nigeria- very huge, just look at how Nigerians have been able to spread to other parts of the World,” he explained.

R2bees recently dropped the visuals for their single “Sunshine”.
