Government worsening the creative arts industry's hardship - Kojo Antwi


Legendary Highlife singer Kojo Antwi has said the creative arts industry is enduring hardship because of the ruling government's tokenism towards the sector.

The musician whose real name is Julius Kojo Antwi registered his dissatisfaction towards the Nana Addo led administration in a conversation with DJ Candyman on Atinka FM’s Drive show last Friday.

The 'Dade Anoma' singer stated clearly that the government failing to implement it milk and honey promises to the creative arts sector during the last elections which held to their victory has caused more harm.

He, however, lauded the incumbent government for the aforementioned policies but bemoaned that their failure to implement the great ideas is during the industry more harm than good.

Kojo Antwi further added that, moving forward if the government is able to implement such policies and programmes it promised stakeholders of the creative art industry, it (creative sector) will undoubtedly become what consumers and players have always envisaged which he believes will go a long way to promoting our rich culture to the world through crafts and arts.
