Veteran Ghanaian musician, Reggie Rockstone has wailed over how musicians in the country are suffering.
The Grandpapa of Hiplife asserted that musicians in Ghana are the greatest hustlers ever.
He bemoaned that they working hard but the returns they receive do not match their efforts.
“I mean, the Ghanaian musician is the greatest hustler ever, they put out all that music, all those videos, all the work and all that stuff and the returns don’t even match it but they keep giving it because they love giving it to you. They are true musicians but the thought of it saddens me,” he said.
He was also against how politicians try to use them during election periods but fail to invest in the industry.
“Music is very powerful, it’s therapeutic so they play a major role. Why do you think these politicians run to these kids when it’s election time? They are powerful. So it’s only right that they are set up right.
“These kids are putting in a lot of work and in a few years, they should be able to look after their children.”
The revered musician, therefore, called on authorities to do what is needful in his interview with JoyNews that Newshuntermga.com has chanced on.
“It’s a beautiful conversation, it’s long overdue. It’s pretty obvious that there are a lot of inconsistencies and so much going on right now and it’s slowly coming to the forefront so the powers that be need to sit up. A lot of questions are going to come their way and they need to come up with the right answers.”
“Young people are not voiceless no more. They need to sit up because at this point it’s really about getting the job done and done right,” Reggie Rockstone further stated.
