The only way to build the industry is by first protecting it. Protecting our landscape and making sure our artists get the needed airplay and exposure. Others have done it and it has benefited their industry.
The role that the traditional media, radio, to be specific plays in breaking and promoting a record can never be overlooked. That is why it is very important to have that section regulated by law.
This is not the first time this campaign has trended. We hope this time around, the stakeholders recognize the importance and pass the bill.
As part of our contributions to the campaign, 5micsGh, the only reviewing and rating brand is up with the official poll to make the statement.
Check out some concerns from social media (twitter) about the campaign
We are working hard to get our stakeholders together with lawmakers of the land to pass the bill on 80% Ghana music on our airwaves.

Most Gh artiste don’t appreciate DJs…They only reach out when they have a new song coming out…How can this 80% work ??
They will go pay Thousands of cedis to Tv stations and foolishly try to give a DJ Ghc 50, 100, 200 .
Not them alone their managers too.
