Being in a band from the beginning has taught me a lot, I was there back when we were a small band and were able to perform the kind of songs we wanted to and, and what we approved of. But after making a name for ourselves and being known by quite a few people we have been forced to promote music and perform songs in which we personally feel are inappropriate.
I believe music as well as other various forms of arts should be able to inspire people, especially the youths in society, and I am strongly against some of the topics some of our main stream artistes choose to promote, which in my opinion can pin them as being sell outs.
Selling out is a common slang phrase. Broadly speaking, it refers to the compromising of one's integrity in exchange for money or other personal gain. It is commonly associated with attempts to increase mass appeal or acceptability to mainstream society. A person who does this is labelled a sellout.
