One of Ghana’s reggae/dancehall artistes, Abdul Razak Issahaku aka Iwan, has expressed concern about the seemingly lukewarm attitude of radio DJs and presenters towards the promotion of his music.
He criticized radio DJs and presenters for failing to promote his music as well as that of other local artists; a situation which, according to him, had resulted in the collapse of the Ghanaian music industry and was also killing creativity.
Iwan, who is one of Ghana’s reggae/dancehall artistes whose contribution to the dancehall fraternity cannot be overlooked, said though Ghanaian radio DJs and presenters could refuse to air his songs on their networks, they could not stop his teeming fans from listening to his music.
“You can stop playing Iwan on Radio But you can’t stop the Youth from listening to Iwan. The New Generation are gradually Catching up😁. They were lied to by there elders who didn’t tell them the real Begining. I enjoy being a Real Authentic King every Min. Every Sec.. My Mission is Just to Preach Teach and Entertain.” he posted on Facebook.
According to him, the new generation is catching up gradually and there will not be the need to rely on radio airplay.
He blamed radio station owners for allowing their networks to be used to undermine the progress of local artiste as well as the local music industry.
