Celebrated music producer Appiah Dankwah, popularly known as Appietus, has bemoaned the lack of dedication given to unearthing new talents in the country.
He noted that if the situation is not looked at and resolved, there may not be experienced artistes to take over from the current crop of music stars.
Appietus said the situation is so dire that exportable artistes currently in Ghana are not even up to 100.
Speaking on Joy FM’s Cosmopolitan Mix with Doreen Andoh Tuesday, the ‘Azonto Fiesta’ hit producer urged that industry practitioners, as a matter of urgency, look at nurturing fresh talents.
“In Ghana if we want to export artistes out of this country, we won’t get 100. It’s sad. In Nigeria, I’m sure you will get over 100 and it’s not population wise. I mean we are almost 30 million people and we can’t get 100 people to represent Ghana, there are more than 100 countries in the world so if we have to take an artiste to one country, we might not be able to do it and its bad,” he lamented.
Appietus added that, “If you take Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, EL, Edem… they are not even up to 50 probably 20 maybe [and] it’s bad. If we don’t brew new talents, it will not be good.”
I’ve not bleached; US weather lightened my skin – Nana Boroo
Hiplife artiste Nana Boroo has broken silence on recent talk about his lightened complexion.
The issue popped up after a picture he took at actor John Dumelo’s wedding went viral. Most people who saw the picture, said he was bleaching his skin.
But in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, the ‘Aha Yede’ hit maker said he was not bleaching and that his light skin colour was genetic.
“I have not bleached. Anyone who knows me and is close to me will testify that in my family, we are light skinned,” he said.
“And you know being fair is expensive, it is not easy, it comes with its own issues. I should be able to take care of myself and get my complexion right but that does not mean I apply bleaching creams,” Nana Boroo added.
He further stated that another reason that might have contributed to his lighter skin colour is the fact that he had been living in the United States of America for a long time.
“I just got back from the United States after staying there for a long time so you know, the weather and all got my skin looking lighter. It will, however, get back to its normal state after a while,” he noted.
Nana Boroo, real name, Nana Osei Bonsu, shot to fame in 2009 with his hit single, Aha Yede. He also has other songs like Bolinga, Bebia Soso and Big Mama.
He recently released a song titled ‘Broken Heart,’ a true life story of how a woman broke his heart.
