Popular Ghanaian gospel musician, Philipa Baafi is not happy about the level of creativity that some of her colleagues put in their works.
Speaking in an interview with Felix Agyei (Mr. Lattus) on J. Life FM’s Entertainment Chart Show, the ‘Jesus Sweet Me Koolem’ singer said they need to work hard and be more creative.
“People do not create nowadays. The creativity in the industry is going down. If we are creative, the up and coming ones will follow our steps. It is a creative industry and we need to be more creative. Refurbishing old songs is not the best. Let s go back to our root, work hard and be creative enough.
“We have so many tunes in Ghana that we can enrich it,” she stated.
However, Philipa believes all hope is not lost because the Ghanaian gospel industry has a great future.
She lamented that the Ghana Music Rights Organization (GAMRO) have not lived up expectation.
“GHAMRO can do more than what they are doing now. If you compare GHAMRO to other organizations elsewhere you will see that we lagging behind. Given Ghc 600 to a popular musician for a whole year is very bad…and that is one of the factors that the industry is dying,” she postulated.
Philipa Baafi asserted that secular musicians promote their works more than that of gospel musicians in Ghana.
‘Our Leaders Are Utterly Stupid’ – Sarkodie, Yvonne Nelson, Stonebwoy, Others Express Support For Kwaw Kese’s Ambulance Rant
Rapper Kwaw Kese has received backing from colleagues in the Ghanaian entertainment industry on his rants about the state of leadership in the country.
A video posted via his Instagram account finds the self-professed crazy rapper lashing out at the New Patriotic Party government over its failure to improve health care issues in Ghana.
Kwaw Kese couldn’t believe that with all the stories of people dying due to lack of ambulances, the stories of hospitals without enough beds to take care of Ghanaians, the NPP is wasting money buying 275 buses for the party.
“It is stupidity and foolishness that a political party can buy 275 buses for its activities when the country is currently struggling with just 55 ambulances. God will continue punishing Ghana and our leaders must start dying one by one.” stated a visibly angry Kese in the video posted early this week.
His comments were supported by many including Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Yvonne Nelson, Captain Planet and D Cryme.
