Okuraseni Samuel has bemoaned the animosity within the industry in Ghana and how some artistes are even prepared to show their disdain for others by pulling out of shows they are billed to perform together.
The former TV3 Mentor star claimed during a conversation with Yenkofie on Connect FM presenter Nana Adjoa Arthur that there is a lot of hostility and hatred in the industry and that if these activities are not halted, the industry will continue to face difficulties.
“There is no love in the industry. We don’t love ourselves. There is so much envy and jealousy among us musicians, and that’s the problem.
We hate ourselves, us musicians. Some artists even go to the extreme and pull out from a billed show just because of some lined-up artist.”
He asked artistes to come together and eschew hypocrisy so that the industry will flourish for their own benefit.
“I advise that we support each other with love. We should stop the hypocrisy and consider promoting our culture through our music as Ghanaians. If we support and help each other, we will move forward as an industry and country.”
