Although he has been around for a while and done some collaborations with top musicians such as Kofi Kinaata, Sarkodie and Guru, Hiplife artiste Quesi Ghana still had to take time off the music scene to grow his brand.

“I didn’t want to do what everybody else was doing.  How would I be different from my peers if I am also doing the same rap thing? I needed to stand out and in doing so, I had to take a long break and figure out what I really want. Now I am able to perform greatly with a live band both a singer and rapper,” Quesi Ghana told Graphic Showbiz recently.

He explained that he is able to perform at different events for more than an hour with a live band now because he has been consistent with his rehearsals.

Released on Thursday, September 1, it is Quesi Ghana’s hope that Struggles will shoot up his presence and relevance on the music scene when it becomes a hit.

Talking about his frustrations in the music industry, he said getting the right management and investment is a big challenge for most artistes.

Talking about his frustrations in the music industry, he said getting the right management and investment is a big challenge for most artistes.

“Many musicians go through hard times getting the proper management and investments to support their craft. Musicians from other African countries have such opportunities and are making it big time. I think it is about time the government invest in the music industry,” he said.

Quesi Ghana is a pioneer of Westside Legacy Movement aimed at creating a support system for talents from the Western Region especially in building audience and developing their craft.

He told Graphic Showbiz that he was happy the movement has been successful in discovering and providing a platform for young talents from the Western region to grow.
