A Ghanaian media personality, Fortune Adotey, has said the country would have gained a higher place in the world music if we had a local language chosen as an official international language.
He believes the current international language chosen by the country has been a barrier to the heights that the Ghanaian music can attain.
“If our country Ghana had a local language which was officially international, I think it would have gained as a higher place in the world’s music.
“We have great musicians who started promoting our music with our languages but in the place of the country not been able to seal at least for one language to the world as our official language,” he told www.newshuntermag.com.
Mr Adotey added: “Melodies and rhythms can creatively make a song popular, but the tongue of that song will have a far reach.”
He queried: “Is it too late to start? I doubt.”
