Ghanaian rapper E.L recently made a thought-provoking statement during an interview with 3Music TV. He claimed that Ghanaian music has not been able to gain much popularity abroad due to the lack of proper promotion and support from within the country. E.L’s assertion is backed by several factors that have contributed to the stagnation of Ghanaian music on the global stage.
One of the key reasons why Ghanaian music has struggled to gain global recognition is the lack of investment in the industry. While some artists in the country have been able to produce hit songs that have become popular locally, they often lack the financial resources and support needed to promote their music on an international level. As a result, the music industry in Ghana remains relatively small and underdeveloped compared to other countries in Africa.
“The artists who are going to do it, I could give names, Worlasi, Bongo Blay, there are certain artistes who are doing excellent and I’m pleased to see it, Black Sherif, Gyakie and I’m glad to see it, and I’m delighted to see it, we need more of it because that is what is going to take us there, period.”
