‘Why Can’t The Government Or The Ministry Fund Musicians?’



'Why Can't The Government Or The Ministry Fund Musicians?'

He made this known in a recent submission he made on the popular Ghanaian radio station, Hitz FM on Monday morning.

In his submission, he said;

“Government put people in offices to represent him. Inasmuch some of these ministries are not strategic, this will surely happen — not understanding our traditional music will happen.

We have an institution, handled by Ghanaians, promoted by Ghanaians, in America. What is the BET and the GRAMMY? We have Ghana Music Awards USA and UK.

Why can’t government or the ministry fund musicians here in Ghana and the institutions that promote Ghanaian culture out there?

Do you think JAY-Z would dishonor a letter from the Ghanaian state, inviting him to come watch Ghana Music Awards? He wouldn’t.

Government is not interested in what we are doing. You can’t get to the GRAMMY without plugs. If JAY-Z, Puff Daddy, Jamie Foxx and the likes are invited to watch the Ghana Music Awards USA, where we project the Ghanaian culture to them, they wouldn’t need to ask anyone the kind of music we do.

Which poor has peace of mind? What has Ghana given to her people? Government should be strategic with the projection of our culture to the world.”
