The above mentioned musicians under the various music genres have experienced numerous challenges in their career before becoming celebrated Artistes and gaining positive recognitions for their music talents.
It is of this that Fast-rising Ghanaian Highlife & Afrobeat singer Mr. Bankz shares his sad story about the challenges most emerging Artistes like himself are going through as they invest and focus on building their music careers.


According to Mr Bankz, most talented Emerging Artistes who do quality and authentic music are not given the necessary attention and recognition needed by some section of the media in order to help Promote their craft.
Mr Bankz revealed that, Some section of the media Pay more attention to clowns with noisy music and rather promote their comic songs paying less attention to professional acts doing good music.

The “Sika” hit maker went further to disclose that, inadequate or lack of financial support is one major problem most emerging Artistes in Ghana Face. According to the Highlife artiste, due to financial constraints, the music industry is not favoring most emerging Artistes since their songs, videos are not being promoted by a section of the media when payment for marketing is not done. Yet still, same DJs and TV hosts play foreign videos which doesn’t attract any remuneration from these foreign musicians.

Another important revelation, Mr Bankz made known to Sintim, Blogger and CEO of Sintim Media is that, lack of competent investors in the music Industry to take charge of the business side of music is also a problem for emerging artistes since many are not getting enough support from business men to invest in their craft in order to help them shoot quality music videos, embark on media tours and collaborate with top notch Artistes for breakthrough.

Volta, Bono, and Bono East regions are the hotspots for COVID-19 Delta variant – Ghana Health Service




ghana health service warns about covid-19

New hotspots for Coronavirus infections, particularly the Delta variant, are emerging in the Volta, Bono, and Bono East regions.

Traditional hotspots such as Greater Accra and Ashanti remain.

According to the Ghana Health Service (GHS), the Volta Region, which had 16 active cases on July 1, now had 532 cases as of August 1, while the Bono Region’s figures increased from eight to 200 and Bono East’s from three to 178.


During the Covid-19 update in Accra on Wednesday, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), told the media that the Delta variant was liable for 79 percent of all Covid-19 cases within the Greater Accra Region.

He claimed that the Delta variant, which had a higher transmission rate and a more severe disease burden, was becoming dominant, and that stricter enforcement of the safety protocols was needed to stop the virus from spreading further.

According to him, the situation has resulted in an increase in workplace and school infections, with active cases jumping from 1,600 to over 6,000 in less than a month.


As of August 1, 2021, there were 6,766 active cases with 854 deaths.

“The current trend of cases with low adherence to Covid-19 safety protocols raises the likelihood of a bigger third wave.”

“With an increase in severe and critical cases, the average number of cases per day is likely to rise. Because the outbreak has the potential to have a negative impact on all sectors, aggressive efforts to reverse the trend are required, according to Dr. Kuma-Aboagye.

There are now 272 hospital admissions in the Greater Accra Region, with 36 critical cases, 87 severe cases, and 107 mild to moderate cases.


Non-wearing of nose masks, disregard for the social distancing rule, and non-observance of regular hand hygiene, according to Dr. Kuma-Aboagye, were the driving forces behind the increase in infections, while 98 percent of the population had not been vaccinated, exposing more people to the virus.

He said that 404 schools had reported positive cases of the virus, with a complete of two ,864 positive cases and 304 active cases.
