Award-winning Ghanaian versatile artiste Jupitar Abeejah popularly known as Jupitar Da General reviles in an interview with Joy News it’s unnecessary to push the 80% Ghana Music agenda as well as the Support your Own policy most Ghanaian musicians are fighting for if they can’t support themselves as an artiste.
The Dancehall sensation after an interview with Doreen Andoh on Joy Fm on the 11 September was asked by Joy News about his view on the 80% Ghana music on the airwaves agenda and how he thinks it will help the industry. He said ” Support your own shouldn’t be an agenda because hardly do we even support ourselves as artiste’. He continued by saying ” If we say support your own is it to the fans or who”. He also revealed that he thinks the policy of supporting your own should start from the Artiste themselves and not any other person or institution.
He added by saying most Ghanaian musicians are too comfortable with what they have now (Current Fanbase and Fame) so they don’t even go outside to promote their content and also shoot good videos for their music and also just releases songs without any proper plan whilst that’s the plan another foreign artiste are using here in Ghana that’s helping them dominate our airwaves which makes some of the musicians feel bitter.
Jupitar recently won the African artiste of the year the Urban Music Awards African Artiste of the year with a lot of awards to his credit and have performed at almost all the biggest music festival across Europe.
