Top Ghanaian Musicians Who Are Struggling for a Come Back!

Asem

The Ghana music industry has really come a long way. Each week, we are being greeted by hit tracks from our well known musicians. Music, like writing, isn’t easy as others might think. For an artiste to come out with great tunes, it requires passion, creativity, etc on the part of him or her.

We’ve come across several musicians globally who compose good songs, but fade out from the system as time passes. Ghana, as a country is not an exception. There have been some musicians who were doing awesome in the game, but now ‘struggling’ to make hits. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Asem

The man who studied journalism, turned rapper is one of the brilliant musicians and songwriters the country has produced. Coming into the limelight with ‘Give Me Blow’, Asem was very consistent in the delivery of hit songs. With his background in communication, he has control over words and very good at throwing punch lines.

However, after releasing ‘Bye Bye’ which he featured Kwabena Kwabena, Asem has been struggling to come out with great tunes. With fans not patronising his songs as they used to, he even went ahead to put his latest album (Tough Times Don’t Last) on internet for free download.

Tic Tac

“Philomena Kpiting3, g33g3.” Any individual who has followed Hiplife from the 90s will be familiar with this phrase in Tic Tac’s ‘Philomena’ track. As one of the pioneers of Hiplife, he has contributed immensely to the success of the genre.

Tic Tac has many great songs to his credit. I remember how one of his songs (Kwani Kwani) brought myself and a girl together when I was a small boy. Tic Tac has tried to remain relevant in the game in terms of songs, but unfortunate for him, his new releases are really ‘hustling’ to make it to the top.

The Chronicles Of Ghanaian Entertainers; ASEM Gives His Whole Album Out For FREE DOWNLOAD

Asem
Asem

Even though Michael Jackson is no more, the value of his albums live on—therefore, you cannot freely get any of his albums for download, unless you want to do so illegally.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got an email from Ghanaian rapper-Asem’s management, giving away his recently released album-Tough Times Don’t Last (December 2013 released) for FREE DOWNLOAD.

Just after 2 months of release, Asem is giving away his entire album for free download? Certainly, it is not that he has made enough returns—it seems people are not attaching value to his work so he has decided to give it out to them for free.

The problem with this strategy is, if someone does not value something enough to buy (probably because it is not good), it becomes even worse in the eyes of the person when offered for free.

Asem has not come out to boldly say he is ‘suffering in disguise’ as a Ghanaian musician but I’ve had conversations with several top musicians who have not been shy to put their cards of the table. The fact is, music in Ghana is a broke business—at least for the majority.

The returns do no come close to the input.

Everybody wants to be a musician in Ghana and whenever I meet or interview a Ghanaian musician, I ask this simple question behind the veil; what is your monetization scheme? Meaning, how do you intend to generate revenue from what you are doing?

Apart from Obrafour who had a good understanding of how he can possibly generate substantial revenue from his work (provided the needed platforms work to his favour), the many Ghanaian musicians I’ve threw the above question to have not been able to convince me of any well planned strategies.

From where I sit, I see many of our Ghanaian musicians as leaving the most important aspect of their success to CHANCE. Without proper revenue generating plans, many of our Ghanaian musicians continue to release singles and albums, investing all that they have for little or no returns.
