Ghanaian music producer, Joshua Raphaelson, popularly known as JMJ, has complained about how quack pundits are making the industry lose its value.

During an interview on GTV, he stated that the Ghanaian entertainment industry is getting to ‘minus zero’ because of unprofessional pundits.

JMJ stated: “Sometimes, I feel shy telling my close mates that I’m actually part of this industry”.

He postulated the need for well-versed individuals to be engaged.

“when there is a health issue, they bring health professionals.

“When there is an agric conversation, they bring farmers [and] people who are well-versed in the matter.”

He argued that the same cannot be said when it comes to entertainment in Ghana.

“…sometimes when you hear some people talking on TV, and they talking on behalf of all of us, it is saddening.
“You ask: ‘What is the reason you are qualified to be on this set?’,” he queried.

Since it will be risky to let laymen mislead the public, JMJ said producers at media establishments like GBC are cautious about who to bring on their shows for discussion.

He further asked the audience to imagine if “they brought a fake doctor here and he starts giving wrong prescription and then the innocent person at home just swallows it.

“Entities like GBC know the danger so they’ll make sure they go for people who are well-versed in the conversation.”

JMJ also averred in the entertainment industry, “We are the only people that you’d hear [introduce someone for a conversation as]: ‘He’s a pundit, he’s this, he’s a music critic,” etc. However, the person may be inexperienced in discussing the topic at hand.

“And that’s how we grew our industry. That’s why its value is minus zero today,” he added.
