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.
