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.
