The Issues And Challenges In Ghana Music Are Far More Complicated Than An Artiste Winning A Grammy Award – Reggie N Bollie

UK-based Ghanaian music duo, Reggie N Bollie has reacted to the criticisms targeted at musicians in the country after the 2021 Grammy Awards.

The duo, comprising Reggie Zippy and Bollie Babeface stated that it is needless for people to troll artistes for not winning a Grammy Award.

They urged these critics to cut the musicians some slack in a post sighted by Newshuntermag.com.

Reggie N Bollie stressed that the challenges confronting the industry go beyond an artiste winning a Grammy Award.

They told these critics to channel their blames to GHAMRO, MUSIGA and other institutions who are responsible to make the industry function properly.

Reggie N Bollie wrote on Instagram: “For those of you trolling Ghanaian artists for not winning any Grammys over the weekend, do you also realise that Shatta Wale would’ve been the Grammy award winner alongside Beyoncé if Beyoncé’s team had submitted “King Already” instead of “Brown Skin Girl” which featured Wizkid? Burna Boy’s album was executive produced by P.Diddy on a major global record label so please cut GH artists some slack cuz being a successful artist ain’t no joke especially when you’re doing it in a fucked up industry.

“If you have anyone to troll or blame, then please direct it to the non-performing Ghamro, Musiga, creative arts ministry and the owners of all the major commercial radio n television stations, Telcos and online platforms who have made it a point not to make our music industry function properly by paying their fair share of royalties that are due to music makers and investors for the use of music.

“An industry which doesn’t have a clear and definitive way of generating revenue will never attract the best of investors around, hence our generational poverty stricken music industry. Our issues and challenges as an industry is far more complicated than any individual artist from Ghana going to win a Grammy. TIME TO GO TO WORK AND FIX OUR PROBLEMS AT HOME BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE IF NOT ALREADY.🙌🏾🙌🏾”
