Selfishness is killing Ghana music industry— KiDi reveals
Multi-award-winning highlife musician KiDi has called on his colleagues to support eachother in the industry to promote Ghana’s entertainment and art to the world.
According to him, that is the surest way for Ghanaian musicians to compete effectively with the Nigerians.
Speaking in an interview with the media, the Girl Dem Sugar hitmaker stated that the only way for Ghana to dominate in the world’s music space is for the stakeholders to support eachother.
“One of the reasons why Nigeria is so dominant in the world Afrobeat space is because there is always more than two or three big artists. There are so many of them so they conquer space and take it by force and that’s because of the numbers,” he said.
KiDi then admonished musicians to relinquish their selfish interest and give a lending hand to eachother.
“We can also do the same (dominate and conquer the world) if we relinquish our selfish interests in always wanting to be the only big ones. When we realise that there is no limit to how we should support and push each other, that’s when we can dominate and take on the world. Everybody needs to be big,” he added.
KiDi also thanked young artists who supported him during his 14-track album concert.
