By any means necessary, GH artistes must make their music heard globally -Shatta Wale
Renowned Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale is urging his colleague musicians to put in the necessary work and efforts to make global impact with their music.
According to him, there are a number of challenges that have impeded the rise of Ghanaian artistes on the competitive global stage among which include lack of conducive policies, infrastructure, and resources. (You are going too far with your actions, Quophi Okyeame admonishes Shatta Wale)
The Incoming crooner explained that these prevailing challenges have prevented major global music industries from investing and partnering in Ghana’s music industry.
Shatta Wale raised these concerns in a Facebook post today, calling for the urgent need to improve regulatory frameworks, invest in modern infrastructure, and strengthen intellectual property rights and licensing to solve these issues to change the present narrative.
“It is time for us to work together to create an enabling environment that attracts major global investments and propels our music industry to unprecedented heights, contributing to our national identity and economy," part of the post reads.

“Thinking aloud on a Tuesday afternoon!!!
I write this with deep concern about the challenges that have prevented major global music industries from investing and partnering with our beloved industry in Ghana. It is clear that the lack of conducive policies, infrastructure, and resources have hindered our growth and potential on the international stage.
We must urgently address this by improving regulatory frameworks, investing in modern infrastructure, and strengthening intellectual property rights and licensing. It is time for us to work together to create an enabling environment that attracts major global investments and propels our music industry to unprecedented heights, contributing to our national identity and economy.
Let us rally together as stakeholders in the Ghanaian music industry and collaborate to open the doors of opportunity for our industry. By any means necessary, we need to put in efforts to make sure our music is heard globally as Ghanaians.
Let’s act now and fast (sic)”.
