Don’t Rely On Government To Address Issues In Showbiz Industry – Ghanaian Singer, Akwaboah


Ghanaian singer-songwriter and producer, Akwaboah Jnr, has advised fellow musicians to be self-reliant and not to rely on the government to address issues in the showbiz industry or their personal matters.

Akwaboah, during a live discussion on the “Uncut Show” with D-Black, shared his views on the challenges faced by artists in the music industry.

He emphasised the importance of musicians taking initiative by investing in their craft, promoting their work, and collaborating with others rather than waiting for governmental assistance.

“I encourage every musician out there to find ways to accomplish your goals instead of expecting someone else to do it for you. Waiting for someone to enter government and fix the showbiz industry or address your concerns will be a futile effort,” he stated.

Akwaboah expressed his belief that the government has not done enough to support the creative arts industry and cautioned musicians against expecting favours or interventions from them.

The singer, however, called on the government to create a conducive environment for the industry’s growth by providing tax incentives, infrastructure, and supportive policies.
