“Kiss your bride” hitmaker Reggy Zippy is a Ghanaian UK- based artist who has sent a message to all upcoming musicians out there.The artist has criticised the Ghana Music Industry as not helpful and and thus given words of caution to all those who have dreams of pursuing music in Ghana.Reggy Zippy in a post cautioned budding musicians to learn a trade instead of having dreams of becoming musicians in Ghana.The artist finds a lot of pot holes in the Ghana Music Industry and tagged MUSIGA and GHAMRO for their careless attitude towards musicians.
“If you’re an upcoming Ghanaian music artist reading this post right now, I WANT YOU TO QUIT DOING MUSIC IN GHANA and go and learn a trade, go get some new vocational skills like Carpentry, Masonry, Hairdressing, Tailoring, or further your education in law, accounting, Engineering., Marketing or in Science.
“Take my advice today and you will thank me in 10years time cuz apart from ARMED ROBBERY, doing music in Ghana is the 2nd most dangerous job you can ever do.
“The GOVERNMENT doesn’t give a SH*T about you, GHAMRO will never work for YOU, Musigha is just for decoration and 99% of event organisers cannot pay you the thousands of dollars you expect now cuz they’re all bleeding especially after COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
“Please take my advice and go and find a proper job to do because most of your favourite celebrities are surviving by crazy means and unconventional strategies that you may not have the heart to endure.”Reggy Zippy wrote.Reggy and his colleague in music Bollie are now residing in the UK and continuing their music career over there after they made a lot of hit songs in Ghana.
