“First and foremost I would like to applaud all the Ghanaian artists because we are really trying. It’s not easy out here and one thing is that there’s no money being pushed into our music industry. The money being pushed into our work is not enough and it shouldn’t even come from our pockets but most of the time it comes from our pockets” he said.

In an interview on Y107.0 FM, Mr. Drew told Kojo Manuel on Dryve of your Lyfe, “So it’s more of a promotional problem. For the Nigerians, some artists are on like three labels and have partnerships and collaborations all pushing one project so the project succeeds.

“Whereas in Ghana, we don’t have that opportunity so it’s just each person for themselves and that makes it difficult to compare our industry to Nigeria’s.”

“Recently I tweeted that these people (Nigerians) are far gone and it’s true. The first step is to accept it then look for ways to catch up with them,” he said. Mr. Drew is of the opinion that Ghanaian artists are doing their best.
