Female musicians in Ghana are doing very well with their various crafts, but seemingly the male musicians are highly mentioned than the female ones.
Taking a walk through the Ghanaian music industry, most female musicians are signed to a record label, thus their promotional strategies are quite high, unlike independent musicians.
According to Mizvee in a chat with Naa Ashorkor on Asaase radio, being a female in the music industry is not an easy task but she has put in much efforts to survive.
“It has been an experience honestly speaking, especially being a female in the music industry in Ghana. Being female in any industry is very crazy. The music industry is very male dominated, so to be an independent artist who is female ne doing this three years after leaving her record label, and still get nominated for awards, performing where ever, able to shoot my videos, it’s just beautiful to me and it’s not easy.”
She further punched on the fact that, it doesn’t make sense to always mention male musicians mostly in Ghana at the expense of female musicians who are really working hard.
“When you listen to radio stations, they are always mentioning the male musicians and it doesn’t make sense to me. At the end of the day when people come to town looking for female musicians, I’m like the first they call so what’s happening? An award scheme in Nigeria, I was the only female they called, so why won’t they mention my name? Why won’t they mention Efya’s name or Jackie, or Wendy Shay? I don’t understand.”
