musician Titi Owusu feels that all hands should be on deck to provide Ghanaian
musicians with the necessary assistance.
In an interview on 3Music TV’s Culture Daily, host Jay Foley questioned why musicians who do live performances barely get recognized. Titi Owusu, an expert in that field, responds by urging influential music industry players to support the artistes. She claims that while artistes may contribute by creating good music, their efforts are ultimately ineffective in the absence of support.
“I just think artistes need more support from the industry folks mostly because we can try our best. We can make the music, and spend all the money doing promotions but if you are not getting the support of your people it’s pretty hard.”
According to the live performer, although some individuals may find it hard to relate to her music, she will keep doing what she does best.
“I am very aware that not everyone is into my kind of music and it’s ok. People have preferences. There are people who only listen to Afrobeats. There are people who only listen to reggae and it’s ok. I’m still going to make music for people who like my music and want to listen to my music.”
Reynolds The Gentleman, a Ghanaian Afro-fusion singer and award-winning producer on his part urged award organizers to give room to all genres of music. He argues that this will help artistes working in that domain gain recognition.
“Even award shows where is our space? There’s nothing like R&B. So you are pushing every R&B to go and try and do Afrobeats or Highlife. Give room to every type of music.”
The song ODO NTI, which is a part of Titi Owusu's upcoming EP, has recently been released.
