Nana Yaa about support in the music industry
“It is really important as Ghanaians to support each other because I have seen that we don’t really support each other. I mean I can use myself as an example, I don’t know if I am allowed to say this but it’s like who you know. It’s like a clique, if you are not in that click then you are not going to be supported. But it shouldn’t be like that because our neighbouring countries like Nigeria, for example, they reach out to each other. I am sure we will get there. It’s a good cause; we support each other”
“We can’t grow as a music industry if we don’t support each other the way we are supposed to. I mean it’s a game and competition but at the end of the day we all want one thing; the betterment of music in Ghana. So we have to support each other. When it gets to the time when we have to play the game we play it and still show love to one another”
Also, she revealed that her colleagues in the music business don’t support her
“So many of the artistes know me and they know I have been in the industry for a while now and if they see me in town they are always like hey Nana I heard this your new jam. However, they won’t post about it on social media. They won’t support it”
