It hurts me that our musicians’ only source of income is when their songs become hits, says Kobby Kyei.

Award-winning blogger, philanthropist, and CEO of Kobby Kyei News, Mr. Augustus Koranteng Kyei, professionally known as Kobby Kyei, has expressed his grievances about the Ghanaian music system and how our musicians here hardly make money with regards to the songs they do.

Speaking to DjQwequ, who is the co-host of the Well-Known Show on Lovers TV Ghana, blogger Kobby Kyei explained that musicians in foreign countries don’t need hit songs to make money. Adding to that, their entertainment system is well structured for every musician to make money even if your song doesn’t blow. No matter the venue at which the song is played, money is generated from there. But a Ghanaian musician must get a hit song before he or she makes money out of it.

“If your music becomes hit, you get shows to play. It pains me the only source of income for our musicians is when their songs blow. You don’t need a hot song in foreign countries to make money. You get money from radio and TV airplays. You get money when your song gets played at Malls, Supermarkets, barbering shops, etc because there is a system that is capturing all the revenues from such places. The copyright there is very tight”

” A Ghanaian musician can get a hit song without him knowing of it. Before he gets to know of it, someone has already made money out of your own song. Our copyright system here is not that strong”.

He said this after his presentation at Central Music Seminar organized by Heritage Promotions for all industry players.
