Ghanaian songstress, Mildred Ashong, popularly known as Eazzy has lamented how the Ghanaian music industry is poorly structured.

The 31-year-old songstress disclosed in an interview with Graphic Showbiz that it is difficult for artists who are not topping the charts to get something from the work that they do.

According to her, the business is lucrative for musicians with hit songs and enjoying the public attention.

“We have poor structures in this industry and that has been the bane of Ghanaian artistes because you don’t make enough when you aren’t on top,” she said.

Eazzy added: “The music business is all lucrative when you’re topping charts and enjoying the attention as a big artiste but the financial flow drops as soon you don’t get much spotlight. I prepared for such days and I’m happy it’s reaping off now when I’m not as big as I used to be.”

She also revealed how the success of the late Ebony Reigns changed a perception that she had.

“The truth is that she gave the men very good competition because she was very talented and for that, she had massive support. I also remember how I enjoyed such patronage at the peak of my career so I think if you are good, you will get public backing irrespective of your gender.”

In August 2010, Eazzy released her debut album, ‘Twinkle’ which featured the singles “Bo Wonsem Ma Me” and “Wengeze” and earned her 2 nominations at the 2010 4syte Music Video Awards and 5 nominations at the 2011 Ghana Music Awards.

Her collaboration with Richie on the single “One Gal” from Twinkle earned her the award for ‘Best Story Line’ at the 2011 4syte Music Video Awards.
