This week just started but we’ve had a lot of things going on in the country, especially within the Entertainment Industry.
On Monday, Ghanaian Musician, Edem went on Twitter to reveal the real truth in the industry and how some artistes are struggling.
Edem made mention of the fact that the systems in Ghana have over the years not favoured musicians and therefore some musicians pose as rich people even though things are not as it seems.
These statements had the likes of Sarkodie and D Black replying to the statements made by Edem.
D Black, in replying to Edem’s statement made mention of the fact that not all Ghanaian musicians are hungry; stating that he has been depending on other sources aside from music for over four years.
Even though Edem made mention of solely the Ghanaian music industry, for D Black he made some smart investments.
Ghanaian radio personality, Aftown marketing manager and artist relations head, Antoine Mensah has come out with some revelations on how some Ghanaian musicians have made it difficult for start-up businesses to get their attention and cooperation to push the Music Industry.
In a recent post on Twitter, Antoine made it known that if Ghanaians support each other and local businesses, then the industry will thrive.
Antione Mensah made mention of some Ghanaian music-related businesses “GhudMusic”, “aftownmusic”, “MusicTime_GH”, “BoomplayMusic” that can help boost the royalty related issues in the industry
“I see a few GH artists complaining about structure and support, yet the stress start up businesses go through to even get the attention and cooperation of SOME artists is ridiculous”
“Everything I’ve seen them complain about, solutions have been provided for, by young Ghanaian business men and women passionate about music and the artists they love. You’re JUST NOT PAYING ATTENTION.”
“You want to track your airplay for royalties? Sign up [email protected] they’ve even got stations in Naija & London covered. Compare their reports to what Ghmaro gives you to argue your point for higher royalty returns.”
“You want to leverage on your fanbase in Ghana to increase revenue on streams and music sales? Sign up to @aftownmusic or make sure your music is on @MusicTime_GH or @BoomplayMusic”
“When you’ve covered these, SUPPORT & COOPERATE with them. That’s the only way we’re all going to grow. You’re complaining about problems that already have practical solutions to them. Do your part, then together we can push for legislation to back our collective action.”
