Ghanaian diva, Feli Nuna has detailed to Spyderlee Entertainment TV some of her challenges as a female in the music industry.
Speaking with Princepatt Makafui Amedume, host of the Hot Gist on Spyderlee Entertainment TV on Friday morning, Feli Nuna has advised her female colleagues to be very careful with men who demand for sex in exchange for favors.
‘Coming up, you meet a lot of people who offer to help you and things…definitely; they don’t want to help you for free. Using my personal experience, with people who offered to help, definitely you were going to get returns in the end because it’s an investment, but they always want a ‘side dish,’ and it’s not the best. That’s one of the challenges I faced before hitting the limelight. It made things a bit hard because if you don’t go their way, you have to wait for a proper opportunity or fight harder. I want to tell all the young girls coming up to believe in yourself and the right opportunity will avail itself. Don’t fall into traps; it’s easily avoidable,’ she said
When asked by the host to detail some of the challenges that are hindering the growth of the Ghanaian music industry, Feli Nuna noted that lack of unity is a contributory factor to the music industry’s stunted growth.
To explain further, she stated that, ‘we need more unity. What I admire about our Nigerian artistes is they are very united. Even from noticing from my Instagram page, I noticed that when a Nigerian artiste releases a song, you see a lot of reposts but even in Ghana, when I’m releasing a song and I send it out that ‘please put it on your page for me,’ it’s a problem because everybody wants to focus on theirs but the thing is, we are growing together.’
She went on to use the proverbial broom adage to explain that there’s strength in a united broom which is not easily broken.
‘To be at the top is very boring and lonely even though you ‘chop’ a lot of money.’
Feli Nuna ended by calling on corporate bodies to invest more in the industry.
