Rapper Elom Adablah, better known by his stage name E.L, from Ghana, has discussed the kind of artists who need to receive assistance in order to promote Ghanaian music internationally.
E.L said that there has been some form of misdirection when it comes to allocating money and attention to the correct artists to promote Ghanaian music during a recent appearance on 3Music’s “Big Convo.”
‘‘We are not giving enough priority, we are not giving enough resources to the right people and the people we are paying attention to I am sorry to say, most of the artistes who we are really paying attention to are not going to take Ghana music as far as we want them to’’, he said.
The “KOKO” hitmaker also named certain musicians who, in his opinion, deserve adequate funding and assistance to advance their careers and promote Ghanaian music.
“The artists who are going to do it, I could name names, Worlasi, Bongo Blay, there are some artistes who are doing good and I’m happy to see it, Black Sherif, Gyakie and I’m glad to see it, and I’m glad to see it, we need more of that because that is what is going to take us there, period.”
“All the other stuff we are paying attention to is not going to achieve it,” he said. “We need to change our perspective and realize that we want future work and that we want to transcend. Let’s pay attention to these artists because they are going to do it.
‘‘These artistes are our local sounds, they are our local brands’’, E.L concluded.
