During an interview with host Daniel Dadson on Rainbow Entertainment, Ghanaian journalist Kafui Dey discussed the current state of the music industry in Ghana.

Dey questioned why songwriters aren’t motivated to create music that promotes social awareness of problems and injustices. He highlighted that the media we consume shapes the way we think and that other countries have restrictive immigration laws while Ghana has more liberal ones.

He suggested that observing the behavior of the current generation of young people could help us understand the direction the nation is heading.

According to Dey, Ghana is moving towards a culture where material possessions and physical pleasure are prioritized over social and environmental concerns. He believes that artists should take more responsibility for promoting social awareness and encouraging positive change.

He mentioned that  Reggae musicians often sing about conscious topics such as justice and equal rights and urged Ghanaian artists to follow suit.
