Ghanaian female artiste, Akosua Kwakye, well known as AK Songstress, has lamented the bias of the Ghanaian media on female artistes in the country.
The ‘37’ singer pleaded to the media to pay attention to the female artistes as they have given to their male counterparts.
She argued that many female talents have emerged-so the industry is not male-dominated as it used to be some years ago.
“In the past, we didn’t have enough females in the industry.
“We could count Mzbel, Abrewa Nana and just a few but now I can mention about 10 female artistes who have potential of taking the name of Ghana forward and it’s about the media shifting their focus on female because things have changed,” AK Songstress told Christian Agyei Frimpong on Onua FM’s Entertainment Show ‘Anigye Mmere’.
She further stated that the coverage given to male artistes when they organize events differs from the coverage given to female artistes when they also organize events.
AK Songstress is currently promoting her new song ‘Obinim’ which featured Nukre.
