Sarpong K. Collins Known in Show business as K.C in an interview with Awin-Tee Okatakyie on www.Showbiz.com.gh’s celebrity talk hour gabbed about how music in Ashanti region has dropped from how it used to be to how it is today.
He pointed his view to lack of sponsorship which to him is the major problem the artistes in Ashanti Region is facing right now. To him this has triggered the artistes to move from Ashanti region to the Greater Accra to get sponsorship to bring up their talent.
“I personally have some underground artistes in the names of Ryan korsa who is the winner of Vodafone icon season three, Enam Vodafone Icons season two, Twice MTN Hit maker season four, Crymi, Marco and PS2 Striker who are still looking for sponsorships”. He said
“The studios in which the we are working is under management and we need to pay for the studio works, but we are doing everything possible to help the artistes by recording them on a low price but after the track has been recorded, it stays on their phone because no promoter is willing to promote the song for free or on a low price and management is also hard to come by”. He stated.
“I can proudly say that, best music in Ghana started from Ashanti region, stretching from the likes of Nana Ampadu, amakye Dede, Dr. Paa Bobo, Akwasi Ampofo adjei, K.K kabobo, kojo Antwi,Awura Ama, daddy Lumba and the rests are all legends from Ashanti region who helped in bringing music to the hearts of Ghanaians”. He said.
He urged all music lovers to come to the aid of the underground artistes based in Ashanti region to help them come out with their talents because lack of sponsorship and management is killing their talents.
