Entertainment in Ghana is Struggling – “Mr. Music Man” Cries Over Lack of Attention

Ghanaian music maestro, Kojo Antwi has lamented over the lack of attention given to the entertainment industry in Ghana.

Kojo Antwi in an interview with Kobby Kyei stated that the entertainment industry is struggling and needs to be taken care of. He made reference to the attention given to the Black Stars by government in their build up to the AFCON 2019 where Asamoah Gyan issued a statement, announcing his retirement from the team but was called to the Jubilee House by the President to rescind his decision.

“Entertainment is struggling, it’s limping so once we heal it, that aspect will be taken care off. The sickness, we lack support, we lack attention from where we should be given attention. When the Black Stars were going to the AFCON, one person said I’m not playing. Because of that, he was called to the Jubilee House”.

He also added:

 “now we have two Ghanaians, one is called Guilty beats, he’s written three solid songs on the album of Beyoncé. And then we have Shatta Wale. Collaborated with Beyoncé. Great   move. Where do we go after that? This project was Beyoncé’s, one of her projects. She’s moving on to the next project after this. What happens to the two great guys who’ve been given the platform?”

The “Mr. Music Man” further suggested that:

“It will take one of us to shine to bring the light on Ghana and if we invade that market and rule that market all that dollars will come here. The money comes here and it will rotates amongst us. And that’s how a system works.”

Kojo Antwi recently performed at a two-day musical concert which was held at the Fantasy Dome in Trade Fair.

He performed alongside, Canadian singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer, Deborah Cox, reggae and dancehall artiste, Samini other great musical talents.
