British female reggae artiste, Yeshie Renee, feels female artistes should unite and secure the respect they deserve in the music industry. She also feels that two many producers are playing what she refers to as, “dollyhouse” (meaning plaything).
“A lot of people out there see our business as some sort of dollyhouse. They don’t feel we want to make money too like men. They don’t want to see us driving expensive cars. So, why the hell they want to give us a “smalls” for our hard work.
“Look at the sacrifices we make in the music business. Late nights going to studio and writing songs. And, I have not touched the insults we sometimes get from major players in the industry. Then, there is the task of putting ourselves together, which includes costly clothes.
Sometimes the costs are almost the same as the payment we receive from promoters.
“People just don’t even realize the many years it takes just to perfect our craft. This include voice training sessions.
Yeshie believes that this can change when females entertainers become united.
“There is too much bitter rivalry in the music industry. And, as we tear each other apart the men sit by and laugh at us.
Yeshie has two of many songs which can empower females. One is entitled “Six Figure” released in 2021; the other being ‘Do Yuh Damn Ting” which was recorded in 2020.
“The first is encouraging females to be their own boss, while the other is teaching them to be their worth.”
Yeshie Renee will be coming soon to Jamaica, to promote her big song, “Boom”.
