Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Epixode has chided his colleagues calling for equal support from Nigerians.
He stated in an interview Newshuntermag.com has come across that some Ghanaian musicians do not support their own.
“Some Ghanaian artistes do not support each other, therefore there is no need to complain about lack of support from Nigerian artistes.”
“For me, it is not even a problem about Nigerians supporting our music. We can all witness the fact that Nigeria has built a strong music industry to dominate on the continent and even around the world. And it is not only in music but other creative arts sectors like film, comedy, among others.
“So if they are not opening their music space for us, then we might as well shut our music space. If they don’t book us for shows, we might as well not book them and we don’t need Nigerians to be the best at what we do.
“A typical example is with the East African music market who always support their own with the likes of Diamond Platnumz having massive numbers on various streaming platforms even better than top Nigerian artistes.
“The most important issue is how Ghanaian artistes support themselves because we don’t even support ourselves to the level where we need to complain about Nigerian support,” Epixode told GNA Entertainment.
He further called on Ghanaians to shut their music space if Nigerians won’t open theirs.
“If Nigerians don’t open their music space for Ghanaian artistes, we should also shut our music space,” Epixode stated.
