Shatta Wale said this in a Facebook post to drum home the need for the industry to be supported to promote its growth.

He said when necessary frameworks were regulated, Ghanaian industry could attract investors for it to develop while musicians would be able to sell their crafts to the international market.

“It is clear that the lack of conducive policies, infrastructure, and resources have hindered our growth and potential on the international stage. We must urgently address this by improving regulatory frameworks, investing in modern infrastructure, and strengthening intellectual property rights and licensing,” he stated.
