“We want help, we want help, we want help,” is the cry of many musicians in the Brong Ahafo Region.
But it appears the majority of these musicians do not know what they really want.
DJs/Presenters playing your songs on the radio is not the only promo that you should rely on. Things are fast changing and you have to adapt yourself to that change.
The problem with most of our musicians is their poor human relations. It is not anytime that you will have to pay someone to promote your songs. Have a good relationship with those you need help from and see the magic.
Even if you have to pay for promotions, it is still part of the game, because once you have decided to be in showbiz, you cannot progress without strategic promotions. The ‘big musicians’ across the world still pay for promos and other things.
The complaints are becoming too many before you do, kindly check what others are doing to change the status quo in our region. It is not easy anywhere, it takes time, hard work, persistence, dedication etc.
I do not like talking about what I do to help others but certain comments push me to open up.
Some people are doing anything within their power to help, so do not discourage them.
Suncity Radio, for example, has three programmes of which they play only songs made in the Brong Ahafo Region. If you do not know, find out and do the needful by submitting your works.
To cut it short, step out of your comfort zone, explore and seek the opportunities which are there for you.
