Nigerian Music Industry has consistently been compared with the one in Ghana by many people especially music lovers. They think Nigeria has always been up there, while Ghana is as yet doing its spot to catch up with the speed at which the Nigerian music industry is going.
In fact, some even say the whole entertainment or showbiz industry is far bigger in all phases than Ghana’s own. This attestation has been ongoing for quite a while at this point. The truth of the matter is, the vast majority including some Ghanaian artists themselves think same.
Adding his voice to this issue that has been on the ‘table’ for quite a long while at this point, media personality and fashion designer Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD) says it is obvious the Nigerian music industry has become bigger.
Speaking on Citi TV, KOD says the Nigerian industry is more richer than Ghana, along these lines their industry’s progression has left behind that of Ghana. The Nigerians travel to Ghana all the more frequently to promote their music. Unfortunately the Ghanaians don’t do that–he said.
Yes, a couple of Ghanaian artist every so often, go to Nigeria to promote their music but the Nigerian artists invest more in the promotion of their music than their counterparts in Ghana.
They always move to Ghana and other countries in Africa on a week after week and month to month premise to do such promotions, just for their songs to be extremely well known. So within a short time, their songs are all over the place– ie. in Ghana as well as across the continent.
Kofi Okyere Darko has been in the media space particularly in the entertainment area for decades, and has worked both on radio and TV for so many years.
He has also managed top music acts in Ghana including Praye, Wutah and a several others. KOD is also a fashion designer who has expertly designed garments for some conspicuous characters across the world.
