Kwaw Kese perplexed about future of Ghana’s music business with the introduction of #PlayGhana

Published

Samini stated that it was past time for Ghanaian music to take centre stage, claiming that the persistent airing of foreign music over local songs has had a negative impact on the industry's marketing.

Following the introduction of the #PlayGhana initiative on Thursday, rapper Kwaw Kese says the Ghanaian music business is in disarray.

The Creative Arts Agency noted during the press conference that the programme aims to persuade the general public and other stakeholders, such as DJs, to play more Ghanaian music on the radio and at events.

Samini, Black Sheriff, Reggie Rockstone, Smallgod, and others were present at the briefing and urged for a strategic strategy to implement the effort and strengthen the Ghanaian music industry.

Samini stated that it was past time for Ghanaian music to take centre stage, claiming that the persistent airing of foreign music over local songs has harmed the industry’s marketing.

“It has to be a deliberate approach. It has to be strategic and deliberate, without malice to any other force or any other group. Let’s make sure ours is ours, and let’s make it appealing to the masses,” he added.

However, in a post on X, Kwaw Kese found it terrible that Ghanaians had to ‘ask’ fellow Ghanaians to play music from their own nation.

This, he observed, demonstrates that the system geared at propelling music in the country to new heights is in disarray.

“Ghanaians beg Ghanaians to perform Ghanaian music in 2023.” “Super fucked system,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, Mark Okraku Mantey, Deputy Minister for Tourism, Arts, and Culture, has advised musicians to cultivate positive relationships with DJs since they play an important part in their industry.

The minister cautioned that disrespect for or strained relationships with DJs might damage an artist’s prospects of success in the competitive music industry.
