Award winning Ghanaian versatile artiste Jupitar Abeejah popularly known as Jupitar Da General reveals 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 artiste.
The Dancehall sensation after an interview with Doreen Andoh on Joy FM (on September 11) spoke his view on the trending topic on the airwaves and made it clear how unnecessary it is to push the Agenda 80% Ghana music. He added that, ” Support your own shouldn’t be an agenda because hardly do Ghanaian artiste even support themselves’. He continued by questioning the agenda by saying “if we say support your own, is it to the fans or who?”.
He thinks the policy of supporting your own should start from the Artiste whilst it gradually hits the media and the fans not any other person or institution.
Besides, “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, meanwhile that’s the plan other foreign artistes are using here in Ghana and it’s helping them dominate our airwaves which makes some of the musicians feel bitter”, he concluded.
Jupitar recently win the African artiste of the year at the “Urban Music Awards ” and also different awards to his credit and has performed at almost all the biggest music festival across Europe.
