Veteran Ghanaian rapper, Kwame Nsiah-Apau, better known by his stage name Okyeame Kwame has expressed disappointments in the inabilities of Ghanaian politicians to help boost our music industry.
According to the celebrated rapper, the Nigerian government unlike the type we have here in Ghana, are putting in enough efforts to push their music industry forward.
He said, “The musician has failed himself, the corporate world has failed the musician and also the politicians have failed the musicians and the industry as a whole.”
“In Nigeria, I know that every year not less than 6 billion dollars is being invested in their entertainment industry. Initially, when you think of Nigeria the first thing that comes to mind is ‘419’, but today because their politicians have understood the role of Arts in the economy, they invest huge money into the industry which has increased their GDP tremendously,” he said this in an interview with Attractive Mustapha.
