Quado breaking industry stereotypes

A story on how you don’t need to be in the city to make it in the music industry.

Many artists who are not city-based endure hardships when it comes to doing the easiest tasks such as visiting a studio due to the lack of facilities or funding. While back in the studio for his fourth album production, Quado says it was not easy coming into the music industry with no financial support and a manager. 

 “ I did not get a manager and never got any financial support I did all from my pocket because of the love of music,” said Quado.

The artist broke into the music industry in 2004 and so far he has dropped 3 albums; Move, Ethimbo and Omboloto ya Sheeli. He is currently working on his fourth album with a single to be released in June.

Inspired by Gazza and Ras Sheehama, Quado said his dream is to work with Harmonize from Tanzania and he believes that he can get the best out of him. 

“I am yet to win any recognition for my hard work.“If others can make it why not me? I believe it is all about dedication. One day, it will all be worth it, ” he says.
