Ghanaian musician and songwriter Kelvyn Brown, known in showbiz as Kelvyn Boy, has called on all Ghanaian musicians and industry players to focus on pushing Ghanaian music across the borders of Africa.
Kelvyn Boy revealed to Rev Erskine, host of Y107.9FM’s Myd Morning Radio show, that Ghanaian musicians have been solely concerned with being the best in the industry, fixating on how to top charts, while other African music industries constantly make efforts to push their music forward.
Recent reports, according to Twitter’s @ChartsGhana, indicate that the top ten streamed songs in Ghana are all Nigerian, which implies that Nigerian songs are being streamed more than Ghanaian songs.
Nigerians have dominated the African music industry, according to the ‘Mea’ hitmaker, because “years back when they were making link ups and trying to discover their sound, we were here trying to find out who was the best, we were here trying to find who was number one, while they were making efforts.”
Kelvyn Boy used this as a wake-up call to all industry players to work together to keep Ghanaian artists on the map while they pursue success.
