Here in Canada the rules in place to ensure a certain percentage of music played on the radio is by Canadian artists.
In Ghana they don’t have such a rule but one radio station has taken it upon themselves to put one day aside in the week to play music only by Ghanaian artists.
Live 91.9 FM has decided to create #GHMusicWednesday a day where they have 24 hours of only Ghanaian music. Their mission is to support and promote Ghanaian musicians and their craft.
This is a great initiative from the station to promote content and artists in the country.
Ghanaian artists are loving this idea because it gives a rare opportunity for their music to get airplay in a market that for years has been saturated with foreign music.
I’m hoping the other stations see this initiative and decide to start their own music days (you our people like to copy). So there will be 7 days where you can find a station playing Gh content 24 hours.
