Ghanaian businessman Ibrahim Bashiru, who is also brand manager for number musicians, has urged music stakeholders as well as musicians to support each other regardless of their status in the music industry.
According to him, the stakeholders in the creative industry should find creative measures to bring all the players on board to work toward the progress of the music industry.
He urged businessmen and organizations to be generous in their support of the country’s musicians who have what it takes to compete with those on the international music scene.
He hinted that the biggest problem of the music industry is the lack of governmental support with regard to enacting laws to protect the musicians and the industry.
He charged Ghanaians and the music industry stakeholders to be aggressive in pushing Ghanaian music to the global market for the world to know that Ghana has something unique when it comes to music.
He urged Ghanaians to have confidence in what we produce and go to any length to promote and market it.
He charged Ghanaians to be aggressive in pushing Ghanaian music to the global market for the world to know that Ghana has something unique when it comes to music, adding that it is about time we push our own music, and stop the idea of promoting foreign songs.
“It is about time we push our own music if we want to be recognized globally on the world music scene. We need to play more of our music instead of the foreign ones,” he added.
