Abdul Abass Mohammed who is better known in the industry as Gh Abass, Ghanaian award winning celebrity blogger a gem in Ghana’s creative art industry, has indicated that people are yet to understand and appreciate the hardwork of bloggers in our part of the world.
In an interaction with News Ghana he revealed that he has indeed been privileged to have had his brake through as a blogger.
Speaking in an interview with News Ghana the Young trending blogger indicated that some practices of Ghanaian musicians downplay the Ghanaian Entertainment industry. He counsels and encourages artistes to use social media to their advantage in developing their careers and not burn bloggers for not helping them.
He stated that Nigerian artistes understand the game related to the music industry. And the support they render to their bloggers permanently accessible and mostly not in monetary terms.
“Nigerian artistes understand the game when it comes to music. Nigerian Artist don’t just care about the money he will give to blogger to write his/her content. Bloggers in Ghana are doing great work to help the industry without the bloggers Ghana music will have ended. I don’t want to compare Nigeria artist to Ghana because They support each other,” he emphasized.
Sometime we fell pained when we post something about the industry and people throw bad comment on our post, we are always being slammed with insults.
Some of the Ghanaian Artists are too hungry promoting their craft and they are always looking for an opportunity to arrest a blogger over content.
However, Gh Abass clarified that he is not creating the perception that Ghanaian acts do not support the media work, but the support should be colossal.
Speaking on the benefits of the bloggers to Ghanaian artistes, he explained that the bloggers performances on their pages aids in developing their fan base, which promotes through music streams across national boundaries.
Unfortunately, some our artistes do not make good use of the networks they build up and end up losing these connections at some point.
The CEO of BBCWEB NEWS stated that it takes effort, hard work and money to reap benefits embedded in the music industry.
“If you work hard and push money, that’s it.”
Ghanaian Artists must learn how to respect bloggers in our industry…
He advised budding artists to work hard, produce good music and stay true to their craft to make them thrive in the industry.
