Virgin crooner Reggie Zippy during his conversation on the One Play Space show with Tilly Akua Nipaa asserted that Ghana plays a very important role in African music.
He then gave a very brilliant example about how Nigerian musician Runtown’ssong “Mad Over You” became a hit between 2016/2017 in Ghana before it crossed borders to other countries. He also made a revelation about Runtown coming back to Ghana in a year or two to promote his music which will also cross borders to other countries.
Tilly Akua Nipaa also asked a question about the important things that need to be fixed if GHAMRO is to work effectively to which he said and I quote “If GHAMRO finally listens and gets straight, that means that we are going to have a Proper Collective Management Organization. This Collective Management Organization will have the ability to set tariffs”.
He also raised concerns at the latter part of the show about the Ghana Music Industry not having “solid collated data” which prevents investors from investing in the music business.
