Rapper Edem has appealed to the government of Ghana after the approval of the IMF bailout to invest $3M into the music industry.
Edem was a guest on the May 19, 2023, Showbiz 360. They discussed an episode from the show that focused on the $3 billion IMF agreement abroad by the board which will be paid in portions to Ghana.
According to the rapper, The talent in Ghana is in abundance be it reggae, dancehall, hip-life. Move to boxing or football and the talent is in abundance but the issue is with the resources, he think as the loan has been approved, the government have to look sharp and invest in the industry.
“People will search within them and bring whatever they want to bring but if it is not marketed people will not experience it so you might have a classic album and there are a lot of artistes who are really talented from the country they may have a classic album but because it is not marketed and publicized you will not be able to see that it is artistic,” Edem added.
