Branding in the Ghanaian music industry is a key factor in the growth for most of the ‘buzzing’ musicians yet some musicians find it difficult to adapt to this business strategy, gospel musician, EBA has said.
The fast-rising musician, who is known in real life as Enoch Blessing Acquah, was speaking at a press reception held at the Praise Factory Studios, a record label and music production firm.
According to him, branding was a major cladding which helped musicians gain influence and maximum reach in the entertainment industry.
EBA said “I have not seen Ghanaian gospel musicians win ambassadorial deals as compared to that of secular musicians. When Glo came to Ghana, they signed several secular musicians and actors but left out gospel musicians.
This is as a result of branding. I feel that we have not packaged ourselves well.”
According to him, his fellow gospel musicians were not making enough effort to make their brand look attractive, adding that gospel musicians in the US were competing with secular musicians “but in our part of the world, the story is different.”
