While You Criticise Us, Focus on the Positives as well – AK Difaya to the Media
Western Region based musician, A.K. Difaya, through a Facebook post he titled “MY FRUSTRATIONS”, has called on the media and other stakeholders in Ahanta West to help promote and recognize talents in the Ahanta West Municipality.
The musician wants the media, specifically the 3 radio stations in the municipality and other stakeholders to come together and support the music industry in Ahanta West.
According to A.K Difaya, Ahanta West is blessed with many talented musicians but unfortunately, these musicians have received relatively less recognition and support for their talent.
He mentioned that there have been several occasions that musicians in the Municipality have been nominated and also won awards and not even a single media gave them any recognition.
“I can confidently say that because they (the media) have developed taste for the mainstream artistes and don’t show us the upcoming artistes the needed recognition and attention, they don’t even know I won an award in the last edition of the “Upcoming Ghana Music Awards (UGMA)”. I was nominated for hiplife artiste of the year, Artiste of the year and best collaboration of the year which I won hiplife artiste of the year.” he wrote.
A.K Difaya got emotional about this because of a song he has released for COVID19 which according to him, is receiving massive airplay from radio stations in Kumasi and Accra but has not received any airplay from radio stations in Ahanta West. read the post as posted on Facebook below…
