For a long time, Ghana’s Arts, entertainment and other related sectors have grown from ordinary to the best, as the industry is dynamic nowadays. Especially for several years now, Ghana’s music industry has been marvelous.
With the likes of some of the incredible humorists like KSM, Bob Okala, Nkomod3, Agya Koo, Bob Santo, Abusuapayin Judas, etc through to the current group of entertainers including DKB, Funny Face, Akrobeto, Lil Wayne, Clemento Suarez, Kalybos, Jacinta, and others, the comedy sector has also never been dull.
Then again, Ghanaian music stars like Agya Koo Nimo, Thomas Frimpong, King Onyina, Osibisa, Afro Moses, Daddy Lumba, Black Prophet, Yoggy Doggy, Kojo Antwi, Diana Hopeson, Mary, Ghansah, Esther Nyamekye, AB Crenstil, Paapa Yankson, George Darko, Nana Acheampong, Lord Kenya, Ex-Doe, Chicago, Nana Quame, Akyeame, and many others have made Ghana proud through their melodies for the nation.
With respect to the fashion business, Kofi Ansah, Joyce Ababio, Kofi Okyere Darko, Kwaku Bediako, Elikem Kumordzie, Aisha Ayensu and more have all contributed their share to it with fantastic accomplishment for both themselves and the nation.
Films can also not be forgotten about as top players like Yvonne Nelson, Nana Ama McBrown, Kofi Adjololo, Grace Omaboe, Fred Amugi, Grace Nortey, George Williams, Chris Attoh and several other entertainers have graced the screens for such a long time.
In sports, there are incredible players like Abedi Ayew Pele, Azumah Nelson, Ike Quartey, Michael Essien, Tony Yeboah, Tony Baffoe, Baaba Yaara, Mfum, Kofi Abre, Osei Kofi, Emmanuel Ampiah, Asamoah Gyan, Adwoa Bayor, Robert Boateng, Ali Jaraah and numerous other people who have all added their bit to the growth of Ghana’s sports industry.
However, numerous people including myself have questioned why these superstars are not commended that well. Ghana has produced whizzes of which some have even died without being perceived all things considered.
In fact, in certain countries, a Hall of Fame has purposely been built to commend their stars by way of having their repertoire including their lifetime achievements displayed in these structures, so that should these whizzes departs from us, we get the chance to peruse every little thing about them and what they deserted as a legacy to empower the up and coming ones.
Obviously, these illustrious people are not only supposed to be celebrated when they bite the dust. They ought to consistently be all around celebrated while alive. For so long, Ghanaian performers have staggeringly done well with many distinctions both in Ghana and beyond.
Of course, any performer can be commended internationally but being recognized in their own country isn’t only justified, despite all the troubles but additionally, a truly critical and incredible one.
In the Hall of Fame, people ought to have the option to discover all that they need about these achievers when you walk into the structure which houses memorials to famous or illustrious individuals (especially ones of importance to some field)..
This hall of fame ought to contain an assortment of memorabilia identifying with these individuals. Essentially all celebrated Ghanaian performers have not had this chance of being in a hall of fame, paying little mind to how long you have been in the business. Truth be told, the records of these guys are not entirely known, even after their demise.
They were never enlisted into any Hall of Fame, therefore getting acquainted with their achievements and what they did is consistently an issue. Obviously, there are a few organizations who have honored some of the hotshots but is that enough?
If any government who comes into power couldn’t care about the predicament of these achievers, the aggregate exertion of these areas: sports, entertainment, legal team, Banking, the media and a few others ought to do their bit to erect a delightful structure to honour these amazing stars who have one way or the other, served the country determinedly.
Looking forward to the government to start this, will perhaps be a long tale.
