In magic, there is something called a smoke screen… when it is visible, it prevents you from seeing what is actually happening behind the scenes.
That smoke screen in the life of a musician is the show of apparent wealth – cars, travel, houses and partying.
However, as the musicians have started revealing, their seemingly luxurious lifestyle is not exactly how it is.
That, according to Edem, is because the music career is not paying them as it should.
He in a series of tweets, said though some of the musicians make money outside of music, the fact that the musician does not make money off their music is a huge problem.
His #iAmHungry campaign came just a day after Stonebwoy lobbied the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah to secure a meeting with the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Barbara Oteng Gyasi to discuss the creation of a Ghanaian paid-for music streaming platform.
Since Edem started tweeting about musicians going hungry, a number of the high profile musicians have also joined his campaign.
One good thing from coronavirus pandemic could be that Ghanaian musicians are finally able to monetize their craft all round and not have to rely on playing shows and concerts to make money.
