Singer, Eshun Singer and songwriter, Eshun has said the acceptance of 'Patapaa kind of music' by Ghanaians and the music industry is killing real talents in Ghana.

According to the ‘someone loves me’ hit maker, Ghanaians prefer 'one way of doing things' and it makes it uneasy for talented artistes with different style of music to penetrate in the industry.

She made this assertion in an interview with Accra based radio station, Zylofon FM.

“Ghanaians are used to one style of music, the Patapaa and kind of songs are what is in vogue. This kills talents of musicians who want to try new styles” she said. She proceeded by saying that most artistes in the industry have been forced one way or the other to follow the trend as that is what Ghanaians love to listen to.

Anas and Former GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi A member of the legal team of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Sammy Darko, says after all said and done, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will be chased to cough up at least GH¢20,000 for work done. 

This is in connection to an undertaking given by the former President of the GFA, Kwesi Nyantakyi, in November, 2017 that an incentive to the tune of GH¢20,000 will be handed to anyone who provides evidence on corruption within the Association. 

“One of the things that we will be doing come next season is to discourage corruption,” Mr Nyantakyi told journalists in Cape Coast after a three-day brainstorming summit. 

“This act involves two people, without one reporting, you can’t hold any one responsible. So we are putting aside GH¢20,000 as an incentive package for whoever reports with evidence.” 

The figure was even upped to GH¢30,000 in the communiqué released after the summit.
