Famous Reggae artist, Rocky Duwani, has said that the Ghanaian Music Industry is not organized, and therefore, its musicians do not break International Music boundaries such as the Grammy. Rocky has been nominated for a Grammy award.
“I wouldn’t say what we are doing wrong, rather we are not doing right. I think that with every type of industry, you need to create some level of critical mass within your own environment, and when you create the critical mass of music and culture, that critical mass then becomes a force behind the certain individual who excels and then those individuals who excel and then those individuals are able to challenge boundaries, overcome those boundaries and set certain precedents and when you’re able to do that, then you have a whole movement,” stated Rocky Duwani.
“The thing with our industry is that there’s never been what we call an organized industry, I wouldn’t say there hasn’t been an industry because then I would be mistaken, but an organized industry. Organized industry is where we have the right institutions like powerful management companies, powerful record labels, a system that give transparency to the music that is been played on the radio, Television and all that.”
The Reggae Legend requested all the musicians from Ghana to support each other.
