Rocky Dawuni, a 2022 Grammy nominee and superstar of Ghanaian reggae, has counseled that the only way for Ghanaian artists to gain more international recognition is by refraining from rivalry and conflict among themselves.
He urged them to stick together for their shared goal.
Rocky noted that the Ghanaian music sector is progressing well. But the pendulum won’t swing until the habit of being together and filling in for one another is developed.
The 2022 Global Music performance nominee said he is not in competition with anyone when speaking to Tony Best, the anchor of Akoma FM’s Entertainment 360 program, on Saturday. And his achievements speak for him.
“We have managed to push our industry to a great level which used to be years back. Different artistes are doing different things, which has brought variety into the industry.”
“What we need to do now is to come together as a unit and work and support each other. See ourselves as one and work collectively. It is the only way we are enlisted among the great in the world. It can’t be possible if we pitch one artiste against the other.”
On the subject of the A-list artistes in Ghana, which many may not include, the former Grammy Award for Best Album indicated that he is touring around the world with songs. He has had three Grammy nominations, so what other validation does he need?
