Afro-Dancehall Artiste, Epixode has said Ghanaian musicians are too fake; reason why their music is unable to cross borders.
According to him, most Ghanaian musicians copy blindly instead of staying original and making their talent flow. He noted that for the growth everybody is seeking to come into reality, there is the need for artistes to avoid copying others but stay natural.
“Now everybody wants to sing like Mr. Eazi which is quite bad for us. We don’t appreciate ourselves We don’t appreciate any talent that comes from here.
As much as we want to get to the next level if we stay original, that is the only way we can stop saying Nigerian music is making waves than Ghanaian music because a Nigerian artiste would always want to use Ghana as a stepping stone to relate to the world”.
Epixode acknowledged that the seeming differences that exist between artistes in the country has also contributed to why the Ghana Music Industry continues to lag behind and therefore called on all well-meaning artistes to bury their differences in order to move the industry forward.
He, however, used the opportunity to call on Ghanaian event organisers to patronize the services of the Ghanaian act rather than depending on other international acts since artistes in Ghana can also provide them with the numbers they wish for.
