Musician Union Of Ghana (MUSIGA) through Mr Adu Poku has explained why no gospel song made it on to the list of 2017 Top 20 Most Played Songs On Radio.
The list was researched and compiled by Kisema–a logging system company in Ghana and presented last Friday at a press soiree to MUSIGA of which they went ahead to release to the general public.
Most Ghanaians were disappointed and have doubted the credibility of Kisema with the reason that ‘Bo No Ni’ by artiste of the year for 2017–Joe Mettle didn’t make it on the list even though it was played on the radio frequently.
Head of Business and Membership Unit at MUSIGA, Mr Adu Poku in an interview on Hitz FM with Andy Dosty stated that gospel songs were not given much airplay on radio stations.

“On the average, the other stations are doing gospel like four hours, the rest of the twenty are dedicated to other forms. So statistically speaking, logically speaking, it does make sense that if we have a list of the most played twenty songs, gospel would not be part of it,” he added.
He explained that the research was solely based on radio play and not performances in church.
Mr Adu Poku stating the purpose of the research said it’s to “help the industry by providing data to our artistes to plan better.”
