eShun lists 1001 reasons Ghanaian DJs should play 80% local songs


Budding Ghanaian songwriter and singer, Ethel Eshun, known by her stage name, eShun who seems unexcited about how some Ghanaians have kicked against the famous agenda to get radio disc jockeys into playing 80% Ghanaian music  has penned down a short write-up convincing the antagonists to repent.

Following the recent snub of two of our top notch artistes Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy in Nigeria at a concert to launch the office of Zylofon Media and MenzGold in the country where audience looked on unconcerned during performances by the Zylofon Music artistes, there have been calls to forcefully get 80% Ghanaian songs on air.

The campaign to some is necessary since that would put an end to the many Nigerian songs on our airwaves whilst others have argued that it will only make our musicians lazy for there would be no competition in the music industry.

However, the "Someone Loves Me' hitmaker has waded into the debate in defense of the campaign with some reasons backing her stance.

According to her, people should stop attributing why they are against the campaign to the poor quality of music produced here citing fellow artist Patapeezy's 'One Corner' song to battress her point.

"There should be demand before quality! The demand and craze of Pataapa’s “One Corner” from Agona Swedru is what blew “One Corner” and make it popular among the almost 200 milion Nigerian population and evidently not the quality”.

The beautiful songstress continued, "Jamaica is only 2.8 Million and their show of love (Demand) for their music is what drew the world’s attention to them and now Reggae and Dancehall is worldwide; Ghana is almost 30 Million in population. If even half of the 30 Million is made to listen to 80% of Ghanaian Music and grows to love and make the needed noise, the World will start listening and patronizing our music!"

“Jamaica is only 2.8 Million and their show of love (Demand) for their music is what drew the world’s attention to them and now Reggae and Dancehall is worldwide; Ghana is almost 30 Million in population. If even half of the 30 Million is made to listen to 80% of Ghanaian Music and grows to love and make the needed noise, the World will start listening and patronizing our music!

If Nana Ampadu, Bob Cole, Jerry Hansen and even the musicians before them, decided that they would wait to have better equipment before they record and serve people with music, we wouldn’t have any history from which we the current musicians would look on and learn. Imagine if Yamoas Band decided not to record Serwa Akoto because of the quality of production then, what a shame that would have been to posterity!

Those making the point that we should have quality before creating the demand by playing 80% Ghanaian Music are sleeping and need to wake from their slumber from lack of understanding of this issue.

There should be demand before quality! The demand and craze of Pataapa’s “One Corner” from Agona Swedru is what blew “One Corner” and make it popular among the almost 200 milion Nigerian population and evidently not the quality”.
