Ghanaian rapper, Manifest has identified an opportunity in the African entertainment space for legal minds.
The rapper who acknowledged how fast the entertainment space is changing said it is time the business moves away from just rapping, singing and dancing.
Citing a rise of lawsuits in the entertainment industry, Manifest said there is an opportunity for lawyers to make an impact in the field.
The ‘God MC’ rapper also advocated for more diligent entertainment professionals to help the space grow.
“I’ve been seeing a lot of legal issues in the African music/arts ecosystem popping up lately. We could do with more entertainment lawyers and other diligent music professionals. Not everyday rapping, singing and dancing,” he wrote in a tweet.
One of the most recent lawsuits which shook the industry was the suit filed by organisers of Coachella against the organisers of Afrochella over trademark infringement.
