Are DJs Supporting Ghanaian Music Or Promoting International Hits?

It’s December, the month of Christmas festivities as well as a month in the Ghanaian calendar where most events and parties are organised. The month has not ended yet but we have seen successful shows/events like; Promiseland, Live Experience with Gyakie, Rapperholic, Around the World, the Freedom Wave Concert, etc, being organised. Some events like Wildaland, Afrochella and many more are yet to happen. With all these events that have taken place, and are yet to take place is a growing conversation of Ghanaian disc jockeys not promoting Ghanaian music.

In the case of supporting Ghanaian music completely or bopping to international hits, there have been fingers pointed at Ghanaian disc jockeys for promoting international songs and not Ghanaian songs. Recently Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD), complained that Ghanaian DJ’s need to work on their playlist. He wrote,

GH DJs you need to work on your playlists guys, we’re all out and there’s 10% GH music on your playlists in December when the whole world is here? Really? Are you happy to promote what’s not yours? I don’t get it. WAKE UP, GUYS! We need to be intentional to project ours.

KOD, Entrepreneur and media mogul

Other schools of thought on this issue have shared different views saying that not many Ghanaian hits have come out in 2021, thus making it difficult to play Ghanaian songs on rotation. Others also have the view that most people by way of listening to these international hits especially afro-beats from Nigeria and recent genre Amapiano from South Africa expect the DJs to play these hits they’ve already been bopping to.

This conversation goes on and on. The question I ask is who really is to be blamed, the Ghanaian artists who have been tagged for not making music to suit the December in Ghana ‘jam’ or the DJs who play international hits.

    Hi terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a lot of work?
    I’ve very little understanding of computer programming however I had been hoping
    to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject but I just needed to ask. Thanks a lot!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the
    video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative
    to read?
