There’s No Change In Ghana’s Creative Art Industry – Paulette Broohm Cries Out 

Paulette Broohm – Singer

Ghanaian Musician Paulette Broohm known Professionally as Salti has shared her bitterness about the state of Ghana’s creative art Industry as compared to that of South Africa. 

The sensational female songstress in a lengthy article on his Facebook page expressed her sad concern about the entertainment Industry here in Ghana which according to Paulette has not had any positive transformation for the past 12 years. 

The singer in comparing the Creative Art Industry in Ghana to South Africa, she made these revelations. 

“….I remember my first time in South Africa.  I went for a concert at this place called basement. Hope I am right. Been a while back. This was in 2008. Now back to the show. It was this big basement obviously no chairs. First time I heard “Zonke” sing immediately became a fan. “Lira” came to perform too and many other acts. Now, what caught my attention was the professionalism of the show. It wasn’t a big event. But oh boy, Every artists,  came with their own band. Mic’s had to be changed, obviously cause artiste have different pitches and the mic should be tuned accordingly. And etc.

I was so caught up with the whole thing so much that , my friend was thinking I wasn’t enjoying the show, because I was too serious. He didn’t get it. I had NEVER seen anything like that before. And till date, 12yrs  down the line, I haven’t seen anything like that in this my country.

Today we can’t shoot movies,  or go for gigs. And I wonder what policies we put in place.  Imagine being paid royalties, like for each airplay / local stream. Be it movies or music, you will still make some money. 

We have several bodies/ associations but all we do is fight. Enti be kraa kraa new s3n? Right now it’s affecting everyone. Whether you play big stadiums or small pups we all dey inside. Whether you’re a stage actor or screen actor. We dey inside.

When the dust settles.  I hope we sit up. Don’t tell me about Apple music, Netflix or Amazon and etc. Home is home.  How many acts are on these international platforms. ( that’s another topic for another day) 

Our biggest show VGMA , we will use a carpet band for every musician. Same mic’s, Same set etc. Nothing is changing.  Chale let’s wake up and do something for the next generation….”

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.
