Rap legend, Obrafour has claimed that there is no music industry in Ghana as far as he is concerned.
According to him, the right structures needed to make it an industry, are not in place.
“Where is the industry? I am sorry we do not have anything like that. What we have are music producers, sound engineers, singers and rappers but not an industry so let’s stop saying we have that,” he told Graphic Showbiz recently.
In the view of Obrafour, there have to be marketing structures, revenue collection structures, firms that are accountable to the artistes and vice versa.
He explained, If anything should happen under the present regime, no one can boldly take full responsibility
Sharing his opinion on artistes signing on other acts, Obrafour said it was a difficult thing to do.
“The reason is simple, you two are all fighting for the same spot and who should let go for one to win? I have tried it, I had the likes of Kwaw Kese etc. and at a point, I had to let go,” he explained.
Commenting on why artistes do not stay longer on record labels lately, he said the young acts these days are in a hurry to “blow”.
