D-Black fumes over the over-consumption of Nigerian music by Ghanaians

Must Read

Ghanaian hip-hop and Afrobeat musician Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, known by his stage name DBlack believes it is high time Ghanaians appreciated local songs and put a stop to the overconsumption of Nigerian music.

The young entrepreneur expressed horror after discovering that the top 20 songs on Apple Music in Ghana were dominated by Nigerian songs.

Ghana music-loving fans prefer listening to Nigerian music to Ghanaian music.

This, Dblack believes needs to change if Ghanaians expect their artists to compete at the highest level with the top dogs from Nigeria and across the continent. He charged Ghanaians to appreciate the Ghanaian acts and ensure that they stream their songs in order to make them competitive.

In a series of tweets, DBlack made a strong case for Ghanaian music especially when many were asserting that the local artistes do not churn out great songs like their Nigerian counterparts…therefore, Ghanaians are left with no option than to vibe to Nigerian music if that gives them value for their money.

Ei Ghana! Our TOP 20 Songs on apple music are 18 Nigerian songs !!? Awurade !!! Like How do we touch the rest of the world if it doesn’t start from home ? Sigh
