Every Artiste In Ghana Is Hungry-Edem

Award-winning Ghanaian rapper/singer, Edem in a series of tweets has ranted about the state of Ghana music and showbiz industry as a whole. He claims that every artist in the industry is hungry because they don’t receive anything from their creativity.

Edem described the Ghanaian music industry such that, an artist will work assiduously for a reputable brand but nothing will emerge as an income from your sweat except to depend on shows.

The “power” singer further claimed that artists appear in music videos and social media flashy but in real life, it’s totally different. He made allegations that after a decade in the music industry, Ghana’s most decorated rapper, Sarkodie has not been able to make 20, 000 Ghana Cedis as royalties.

Edem further alleged that, even dancehall king Shatta Wale has over 300 songs to his credit and yet he has not a made a pesewa from its usage.

He concluded by revealing his future plans in the industry saying, he does not want to die from hunger, neither does he wish the next generation to die from hunger, and that is what pushed him to lament about the industry issues.
