Afrobeats singer Kuami Eugene has stated that it’s not realistic to compare the Ghanaian music market and the Nigerian music market.
He revealed that this comparison is unrealistic due to the huge difference in the population of the two countries – which automatically makes Nigeria have more musicians than Ghanaians.
“In Nigeria, if half of the population stream your music, it wouldn’t be the same as Ghanaians. No matter how gifted we think we are,” he said.
The “Rock Star” further added that becoming known internationally as a singer is not an easy task. It takes hard work, perseverance, and seizing opportunities well.
Therefore, he feels a sense of pride seeing any Ghanaian overcome this stage.
“I hold my other colleagues in high esteem when we blow because it’s not easy. We need to appreciate artists that blow up from here,” he noted.
Comparison of the Ghanaian music industry with that of the Nigerian music industry has been the most discussed topic in the entertainment industry due to the commitment level of Nigerians.
It was speculated that Nigerians invest more into their music industry which gets their songs more streamed on social media and most enjoyed.
Other Ghanaian celebrities have poured out their concerns in relation to how Ghanaians are compared with Nigerians.
Reggae/Dancehall musician Samini voiced his concerns about the frequent comparisons between Ghanaian and Nigerian artists. According to him, these comparisons are unfair and discriminating due to the vast difference in population sizes between the two countries.
Also, KiDi expressed his frustration with the constant comparison between Nigerian and Ghanaian music industries.
He believes that it is disheartening and unproductive for Ghanaians to continuously lament on social media about how well Nigeria’s music industry is thriving.
