Start Promoting Positive Entertainment News/Stories On Your Radio & TV Programs – Aboagye Gideon to Entertainment Show Hosts and Their Producers

Published

on

In recent times our media (TV, Radio, Online Blogs/Websites) have failed us as a means of informing, educating, and promoting creative arts (music, fashion, dance, acting, comedy, etc) from Ghana to the world. The most pathetic part is our entertainment jurisdiction. More often than not most of our entertainment programs on Radio and TV are supposed to talk about relevant and important happenings in our entertainment fraternity but some choose to talk about either nudity, or make needless comparison between top artists in Ghana. We have seen people like Rashida Black Beauty, Naa Korkor, Akuapem Polo, Supa, Pamela, amongst others rise to fame so quickly and thereafter fade like a thin air of smoke. I personally believe we endorse or promote more mediocrity in our media space than promoting all the abundant talents we have in Ghana. There were instances where these “7 days wonder celebrities ” were granted countless interviews on our media(TV & Radio) space where as some comedians, spoken word artists, fashion designers, uprising or indie artists finds it hard to get access to interviews on our Radio & TV programs/shows. There have been lots of instances where uprising artists have complained bitterly because the can’t get Radio & TV interviews due to financial restraints.
There are lots of Ghanaian entertainers putting Ghana on the world map but some of these entertainment programs don’t even bother to talk about it. Musicians like Wiyaala, Atongo Zimba, FOKN Bois, Rocky Dawuni, Black Prophet, mostly put out stunning performances at shows being organized in Europe and some entertainment shows/programs won’t even care to discuss these amazing efforts but will be quick to interview a semi nude/nude photo model, a victim from a trending sextape, a drug addict, amongst others. Every week artists and events houses in Ghana organizes events that are worth discussing but we won’t hear about it on Radio or TV but there will always be a “Shatta – Stonebwoy comparison/argument “. Its time some entertainment radio producers start putting out positive stories from our entertainment for discussions on their various TV and Radio programs. There has been awards schemes in various regions celebrating hard working and deserving artists, there was Volta Music Awards, Eastern Music Awards, Central Music Awards, Western Music Awards, Bring Ahafo Music Awards, amongst others but none of these award schemes has been discussed because maybe its probably not VGMAs tho. More often organizers of the awards schemes have to beg for airtime on some Radio Entertainment Programs yet these semi nude, sextape victims, etc get countless interviews on some Radio and TV Stations. Its high time we put out only positive information about our creative arts/entertainment industry for our listeners, viewers and people in the diaspora to see the good side of our entertainment industry.

These days some blogs are pushing more nudes and Radio & TV stations are feeding on them. There are lots of positive stories these bloggers can put out there but will rather publish all those “Stomach Direction Stories”. All they care about is the social media likes and traffic on their websites and not putting out accurate and relevant information about our entertainment industry. As a blogger the only way you can help our entertainment industry is to publish positive stories from our entertainers. Shatta Wale shouldn’t always be in the news for negative reasons, there are lot of positive things he does yet some of these bloggers chooses to ignore and rather feed on the negative news for website traffic and likes. Every week our artists (Mainstream, Indie acts) put out positive projects that is worth sharing but these “Stomach Direction Bloggers ” will rather prefer to upload a sextape or talk about trending nude pics from nude photo models. At the end of the day we will be screaming “Support Our Own”, if we ignore supporting our artists from the basics/foundation how will they reach higher heights? As media people we need to use our influence judiciously.

Thumbs up to all Radio & TV entertainment programs that always put out positive news about our artists and are promoting creative arts in Ghana, your efforts needs to be appreciated.

Azigiza-: Ghana didn’t take advantatge of Shatta Wale and Beyonce’s collaboration

Published

on

Victor Kpakpo Addo popularly known as Reverend Azigiza Jnr has asked the government to find ways of pushing Ghanaian acts onto the international scene.

Speaking on Upside Down on Citi TV, he said Ghana did not take advantage of Shatta Wale’s feature on Beyonce’s ‘The Lion King: The gift’ album.

He said this when he was asked to assess the performance of the current crop of Ghanaian musicians.
“I really love Sarkodie. I have never met him but I think he has got something that even if the Ghana Tourist Board, the musicians union whatever can pick some three, four, five people and find ways of pushing them,” he said.
“I was excited when I saw Shatta Wale and Beyonce. It was good, I saw Stonebwoy and other people. But we can be intentional. For example, what advantage have we taken from Shatta Wale and Beyonce? What have done with it?” he asked.
He further noted that the Ghana Tourism Authority can ride on it, pick this guy and market him to the world.
“Let’s do something on CNN with this guy, inviting them to Ghana. Music is a lifestyle thing so see how you can weave other lifestyle stuff with it,” he said.
He started his Disc Jockey career in 1991 on the radio as a presenter and DJ and hosted programmes such as Joy Fm’s Joy Beach Jam, Video Vibes, Guinness Music for Your Dancing Feet on GTV and the Azigiza show.
Rev. Azigiza enrolled in some Bible schools and since become a minister of the gospel.
