Ghanaian music duo, DopeNation, claim that while the Ghanaian music industry is thriving, it can do better and excel more for the benefit of its stakeholders.
Giving an assessment of the music industry, the music duo, in an interview on TV3 NewDay, said the industry could do better by paying more attention to artists and providing more ways to increase promotion. .
“All we can say is we’re okay. It’s just that the attention should be on the artist. We have a lot of people who listen to songs and don’t even know the artist.
The musical duo further said that more opportunities should be designed to support artists and promote music before paying attention to the competition.
“This is Ghana. We need to understand who an artist is and what the artist seeks to accomplish. And also, how to succeed before thinking about the competition. “
Recounting their performances during the holiday season, they revealed that they had shows on the outskirts of the capital, and the experience was captivating.
Revealing their plans for 2022, they reiterated that this year will be full of surprises as they will have many international collaborations.
The duo also mentioned that they will create opportunities for talented artists on the streets by dropping five free beats where the next acts will be used as a freestyle to win a studio session. After recording the video, participants will share it on social media.
They will also use the appropriate hashtag, including DopeNation. The best videos will be selected and the winner will be invited to the studios to record with them.
“This year, expect more doping stuff. We are planning to collaborate with more artists outside of Ghana. And bring in more street artists. We have a lot of talent on the streets, DJs, artist promoters. So we want to help them ”.
Dope Nation will also launch its musical year with the free concert called ‘Dope Concert’.
The concert will take place on Thursday January 6 in Accra. The expected artists with performances are Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Medikal, King Ayisoba, Fameye and others.
The group urged all to engage in practices to ensure peace inside and outside the country. Adding that “when we are scattered with different interests, we do not preach what is right. “
