Young musician kidi has bemoan the fact that Ghanaians like free things and that does not help the creative art industry.
According to him, people do not like purchasing music from the top straming sites but prefers downloading them for free and also share among friends for free.
Speaking in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central in Cape Coast, Kidi said.
“My song enjoyment is getting a lot of streams internationally and also locally. You know our people in Ghana don’t often stream on the digital platforms to get our songs”
“Most people visit online blogging sites like ghanamotion.com and co to download it for free and even share the song with their colleagues. It doesn’t help us at all unlike buying the songs from the streaming sites where the money goes directly to the artiste.
“Most artistes make money through online streaming of songs and music videos, shows they perform and endorsement deals.
“All the same we are getting the streams and we encourage the fans to put money in the pockets of their artiste through streaming of our songs and videos on digital platforms not through free downloads”. he added.
