Papua New Guinea musician Justin
Wellington is in the country to celebrate Sharzy’s 10th anniversary.
The PNG musician will assist the solo
artist in his shows along with Solomon Islands local artists like DMP, Wantoks,
Taina Gee and Dehvande.
“Yes, this week I’m celebrating my tenth
year of making music in the Solomons and it does not feel like its been ten years
though, it’s more like three years,” said Sharzy.
The artist said the reason is because he is
too busy with work, music, tours, gigs and family.
“Marking my 10th anniversary is a great
achievement for me and it doesn’t happen naturally, it is with dedication,
commitment and being consistent,” he said.
He added there are tireless and tremendous
people behind the scene who believed so much in his music career that he earned
such recognition as music awards and being heard on all shores in the pacific.
“It does happen through the hardworking
radio announcers who played a major role in promoting not only our local and
pacific music but overseas as well for the entire population to hear every now
“Further more the public at large who
consists of fans, friends, wantoks, visitors and with the help of the internet, makes music accessible and it gets everywhere.”
He said if someone asked did you benefit in
those ten years. What stage are you in, in the past ten years in terms of
“Music and it does work. I had been
benefiting from it under copyrights.”
Sharzy said once you’re signed under a
copyright organisation for publishing, you will go silent and don’t want to
make a lot of noise.
“Today, I’m celebrating a handful of
experiences in the local music industry and still enjoying writing lyrics,
making tunes, arrangements and a happy person with my passionate talent, music,” Sharzy said.
