Highlife artiste, Kwaisey Pee comments on the state of the music industry.
He had an interview on Atinka 104.7 FM drive talk hosted by DJ Candyman. Moreover, he spoke about his views on the contribution of the government towards the music industry
Initally, he refused to give his opinion on the topic under discussion. However, he relented and stated that the government was unhelpful to the music industry.
Furthermore, according to him, there are no spacious theatres to accommodate more patrons and stakeholders. Therefore, there is a long way with regards to the government’s contribution towards the industry.
He was quick to add that he thinks the problem probably has to do with the agenda of political parties in the country.
“Maybe they have their agenda before coming into power, and music might not be part of the agenda”
Also, Kwaisey told DJ Candyman that one of the great assets of a country is the music industry. Therefore, he admonished the government to pay attention to it.
“They perhaps think music isn’t that necessary for the growth of the country, but listen, when, music is done well, it has a lot of benefits like attracting tourists into the country which helps the country holistically…”
