But its your opinion, so I MUST respect that
what did he accomplished musically in the hmi?
seriously dj kreyol can you say that last year gazzman Couleur took the hmi by storm because of his music or because of the album?
the fans (his fans) didn't care about his music or whether he can have give them a hit song instead they were curious to see him in his new band without Arly Lariviere, again am not taking anything away from him.
By the way now i understand what you meant when you said disip doesn't need a hit...i got it now ....in a way you were right, i underestimated gazzmans popularity
Here is the thing...
Gazzman is an ARTIST. An artist that is REVERED by many many many people. That is not going away.
Secondly, when the band was formed he made sure to put TALENTED musicians behind him.
This is where Gazzman's case is different from Gracia's (there are other differences but that is another discussion).
When you say Gabriel Laporte and Patrick Pluvoise, that is A LOT. That is pure nostalgia for people that listened to Nu-Look back in the day. People said wow finally I can hear my singer backed up by the guitars I fell in love it. What isn't artistic about that? Neg yo jwe bien. They are not rookies.
Sexy Beef is one of the BEST bassists in Kompa.
So in Gracia's case, Gracia was backed by talented young talent but not on the LEVEL Gazzman has.
Third, they came out with a CD. A very good one. Before the CD came out, I said they didnt need a HIT for this CD. As long as the songs are digestible they would be fine. "Bope Pa Papa" is a buzzworthy song. So if you are a Gazzman fan, you are satisfied.
Fourth, if the BAND did not play WELL and if the SONGS were that BAD, the results would SHOW. The band would not be booked. The band would not be playing. But the band is booked. So how is ART missing there?
A painter paints. A singer sings. A dancer dances.
Mika is a producer. A great producer and writer. He did a GREAT job in 2010 with his work on "Famn Sa Move", "Ou Fem Vole" and "Yap fè Foli".
But Mika and Gazzman deliver their art differently.
And the judges this year that Gazzman's impact COULD NOT be denied.
Gazzman could have been donated a million bucks to charity, people would still find some crap to say about his gesture.
His band wins Newbie of The Year, oh it's because of Gazzman's popularity.
He wins Artist of The Year, oh he didn't do anything musically.
Si Disip pat fwenk bon, jazz la patap la toujou. Bay moun zye yo.
Let the animosity go already, it's too old. Gazzman made his choice in leaving Nu Look to form his own band, accept it, deal with it, move on.
Geez, let the man enjoy his moment, this is Gazzman's time to shine and this will go on for a very long time.
