Having a clear understanding of what he wants, T-Ben Miller takes action accordingly. As social media craze and trends grow, many artistes, especially young talent, are willing to do anything to get themselves in the news – be it good or awkward – they just want to trend! But that’s not the case with this young creative talent named T-Ben Miller.
“No Bad Times” is the sophomore EP by the Afrobeats Crooner, who has decided to engage in a broader range of music endeavors.
He didn’t just outlive himself on this project, he put a lot of effort into making it a great EP.
With just four songs on the “No Bad Times” EP, he was able to blend different styles of Afro and pop music – from track 1 to track 4, African originality in the music was evident. With roots in Ghana and Nigeria, one can be sure of no bad songs on “No Bad Times”.
“No Bad Times” is his sophomore EP, his previous one released in 2020, his debut, was “Kwame Nkrumah” EP.
T-Ben Miller discusses “No Bad Times” in an exclusive interview with BeenieWords.
Below is the narrative:
Why “No Bad Times” EP? What’s the agenda behind this concept?
No Bad Times is a collection of art that discusses piety, love and hate, sadness and happiness. Ultimately, the goal is to remind ourselves as humans to celebrate life, enjoy life, and embrace all situations, no matter how they turn out. ThWork of art also teaches us not to judge others’ situations without knowing what they’re going through – no matter how beautiful or ugly.
Even before we can speak or think properly, we have been indoctrinated into different cults, churches, mosques, etc., and we have answered these questions based on those beliefs. It must be dark in the world for a man who is born blind and will remain blind forever. Telling him there is something called light must be deceiving him, but what is the truth? He sees the world as a dark place, and that’s the sad truth he knows. For such a man to rationally accept the possibility of light, he will have to question himself and become aware of himself.
No bad times EP was produced by Samsney and Hairlergbe, engineered by Mix Master Garzy, Cash 2 and Samsney.
The EP has already released two singles, “Baby” and “Mayana”. This is a project T-Ben Miller will continue to release singles off the album until February 2023, when the full catalog will drop.
