Ghanaian media is male bias – AK Songstress cries
Dancehall artiste, AK Songstress has bemoaned the bias Ghanaian media has for male artists.
Born Akosua Kwakye, the singer has called for equal opportunities and attention for female entertainers.
“In the past, we didn’t have enough females in the industry. We could count Mzbel, Abrewa Nana, and just a few, but now I can mention about 10 female artistes who have the potential of taking the name of Ghana forward, and it’s about the media shifting their focus on female because things have changed.” She said.
According to her, there are very good females’ in the industry with equally good managers and branding but are still not getting the attention from the media.
This she said makes her think the media is still living in the past when the music industry was male-dominated.
“When a female artiste organizes an event, bloggers, television stations and cameras, in general, do not go to cover as compared to male artiste events,” she said in an interview on Onua FM.
AK Songstress is out with a new street banger titled ‘Obinim’ which features Nukre.
