- Barima Sidney says Nigerian music is still dominating the Ghanaian market
Popular hiplife artiste, Barima Sidney has disclosed that the emergence of young Ghanaian artistes such as Ebony, Kuami Eugene, Kidi and King Promise have saved Ghana’s hiplife music on the world stage.
According to Barima Sidney, the four young Ghanaian artistes have played very crucial roles in putting Ghana on the world map, when it comes to contemporary hiplife music.
Speaking to Happy FM in an interview, Sidney revealed that, Ghana music was seriously struggling until the young artistes emerged.
“Nigerians were dominating Ghana music until Kuami Eugene, Kidi, Ebony and King Promise came to the scenes,” Sidney said.
The “Ghana Money” hitmaker in his conversation conceded that, although Nigerian music is still the toast of the day, the presence of the four young musicians have done so much to make strides in the Ghana music industry.
Sidney added that the competition in the Ghana music industry is now tough because of these great young talents.
The young musicians have won the hearts of many Ghanaian fans both home and abroad with their soul-sorting hit songs.
However, Ebony has met her untimely death in a gory accident after being nominated for the VGMA Artiste of the Year award.
Hiplife artiste, Barima Sidney is known for attacking and addressing social issues with his songs.
Though the hiplife artiste is gone on the low, it is believe he is closely monitoring the Ghana music industry from afar.
