The US based Ghanaian vlogger Archipalago has bemoaned the increasing rate at which disc jockeys (DJ’s) play foreign songs, especially Nigerian music, to the disadvantage of Ghanaian compositions.
According to him, instead of hyping our songs they spend all their airtime playing Nigerian songs and treat our artists like Sh**.
Zylofon on Friday the 25th of August 2018 held an invasion concert in Nigeria and the Ghanaian acts[Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Joyce Blessing, others] who performed on that day experienced the greatest shock of their life.
At the event, the Nigerian crowd refused to give the Ghanaian artistes any sort of recognition, or even cheer him, with most of them just chatting among themselves while the Ghanaian artistes performed.
Archipalago in this light has pleaded with Ghanaian DJs to play Ghanaian music and called on Nana Appiah Mensah to ensure that his artist’s songs penetrate into other markets.
