Jah Phinga lamented over the current state of Ghana Music
Fast growing Ghanaian Reggae and Dancehall artiste Jah Phinga on Wednesday 4th October 2017, coughed his heart out over records produced within the shores of Ghana not gaining the needed attention they deserve in the outside world.
Jah Phinga, born Jonathan Woelin Segbefia, on his facebook page posed serious questions to Ghanaian Artistes and the world at large as to reasons why Ghanaian music continuously fail to make impact on the global music scene
￼With reference to the current MTVEMA which had no nominations from Ghana, the dancehall artiste bore his frustration on his Facebook Page. In his post, he asked “Are we doing something wrong? Is it that the world has refused to accept our music and the popular artistes here in Ghana?”
The Hold me hitmaker also cited that, Ghanaian music is equally good,as compared to music from other countries that has gained recognition across the world. He also made mention of MrEazi, who on several occasions defended the authenticity and quality of Ghanaian songs.
As an industry player, Jah Phinga wants to see himself and other fellow Ghanaian artistes also dominating the world market with their music. He called on Ghanaian musicians to spread their songs beyond the tentacles of Ghana
Jah Phinga recently received his first international nominations for All Africa Music Awards(AFRIMA) in the Best Artiste Or Group In African Reggae Ragga and Dancehall category with a song “One World, One People” featuring Dutch Reggae Artiste Ihenry.
