We love to consume inferior music without considering the sound – Blakk Rasta

Radio Presenter, Blakk Rasta has said that Ghanaians are mostly keen on consuming music which are generally substandard.

The Reggae artiste indicated that consumers enjoy songs without taking into consideration the sound.

According to him, trending artistes do not regard good sound as a priority for their sounds beyond Ghana.

He added that Ghanaian musicians love to produce inferior sounds that cannot compete on the international front.

“We love to consume mediocre product, inferior goods, we do not consider the sound.”

He questioned how many of the current Ghanaian artistes in this dispensation are able to play on the international stage or even work to get quality music that can get them Grammy nominations.

“Alot of these artistes you consider as A-list artistes will not qualify for Z-list artistes in some other countries”

However, he mentioned that he is not against musicians but the poor quality of songs they produce.

He was of the view that until Ghanaian musicians invest in their sounds to meet international standards, they will not be able to compete with their international counterparts.

He made reference to his ‘Kuchoko’ Music which is a blend of Reggae and traditional African sounds that is unique.
