Ghanaian female Dancehall artiste, Abrewa Nana, is worried about how some musicians in the country are treated.

She bemoaned over how a few musicians in Ghana are given special treatment.

The ‘Odo Filla’ hitmaker said the categorization made by the media and giving preferential treatment given to ‘A-List’ artistes is not helping the growth of the industry.

“The industry needs a united front that would give prospect to a broader range of talents instead of focusing on a select few.

“Also, the media makes it look like Ghanaian artistes are not doing well because in their own mind, they have listed some types of artistes who they have put on the frontline for the world to see. That is the reason why our counterparts elsewhere seem to be ahead of us. They don’t push only one person to shine, they offer a lot of people equal opportunities to blossom and that is what we also have to do here,” she told Graphic Showbiz.

“I believe in a music industry that provides equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of their background or origin. It’s time for us to come together and create a space where talent can flourish, irrespective of gender, ethnicity or socio-economic status,” Abrewa Nana added.

She also supported the #PlayGhana agenda initiated by the Creative Arts Agency.

“If we don’t concentrate on the #PlayGhana agenda, when foreign visitors come here, especially during Christmas, and all they hear is foreign music, that will be the message they will take back home with them. I am sure when we are keen on playing about 80 per cent Ghanaian music, the impact will be felt across the globe.”
