As if it is a curse which has been placed on many Nite clubs in the country, most of them do not appear to be enjoying longevity in terms of operation.
In a previous interview with DJ Black as to why Nite Clubs businesses collapse in Ghana that easily, he told Flex newspaper that it is because Nite Club managers do not treat DJ`s well, hence, why the clubs do not last long in the system.
“People always go to the Nite Clubs when they know there are serious and good resident Djs who provide good music to revelers any time the clubs operate. In the absence of these Djs, there is no clubbing because the assets and the drinks in the house alone cannot make the revelers who come there happy but good music from special Djs” DJ Black told Flex newspaper.
He even added that because the Djs are not respected by the club owners, they do not even keep the Djs Cabin clean enough for the Djs to operate in healthy environments which is also affecting the delivery of the DJ.
Meanwhile, Flex newspaper investigations have proven that the issues leading to the collapse of Nite clubs in Ghana goes beyond bad treatment of Djs but the availability of open pubs on the streets of Accra.
A journey around town in Accra at night will expose one to many open pubs on roadside with a good number of people dancing and drinking their hearts out bringing in mind this economic equation.
If music will be given to the people at the same cost with the drink, why would he or she pay another cash as entry fee at a Nite club else where that the DJ might not even be better than the open pub DJ.
This problem is more economical than poor treatment of DJ`s by the Nite club owners and according to our investigations, it is causing more harm to the Nite club than one can imagine.
In an interview with a DJ at Aponkye Spot in Adabraka, he told Flex newspaper that now musicians do not even give them breathing space as every one wants his music to be promoted at these joints more than the Nite Clubs.
