Ghana Rap legend, Obrafour has claimed that there is no music industry in Ghana as far as he is concerned. According to him, we lack the right structures needed to make an industry.
In an interview with Graphic Showbiz, he said “Where is the industry? I am sorry we do not have anything like that. What we have are music producers, sound engineers, singers and rappers but not an industry so let’s stop saying we have that,”
Obrafour continued that “there have to be marketing structures, revenue collection structures, firms that are accountable to the artistes and vice versa.
“If anything should happen right now, where or who or which organisation can boldly say, we take full responsibility?” he asked.
Sharing his opinion on artistes signing on other acts, Obrafour said it was a difficult thing to do.
“It is very challenging for an artiste to sign another artiste. It won’t work. You may try, do your best but it won’t work.
“The reason is simple, you two are all fighting for the same spot and who should let go for one to win? I have tried it, I had the likes of Kwaw Kese etc. and at a point, I had to let go,” he explained.
