Ghanaian dancehall musician Stonebwoy addressed his concerns about investors’ ignorance of the complexities of the music industry in a direct conversation with Berla Mundi on 3 Entertainment’s Twitter Space.
Stonebwoy discussed the difficulties faced by Ghanaian artists in terms of financial assistance and the lack of enthusiastic backers when he was currently in the United States to promote his 5th Dimension record.
“Ghanaian artiste don’t have support financially because I believe that the understanding is not convincing enough for bankrollers to be able to hire all these arms and all these people that make things work at the biggest level,” he shared
Stonebwoy highlighted the commercial character of the music business and compared it to the necessity for government backing.
“We are willing and continuing to hire and employ as and when we can because guess what this also business even government has to go and take loans, government needs financiers and I tell you that this is that part of the situation where we don’t have,” he stated.
