Nigerian musicians are more busines minded unlike most Ghanaian musicians – Mix Master Garzy
Mix Master Garzy is a Ghanaian sound engineer who has works with the likes of Sarkodie, David, Stonebwoy, Samini, Patoranking, Diamond Platinumz and many more. The famous engineer was in an interview on GhanaWeb TV and was asked what the difference is between working with Nigerian artistes and Ghanaian artistes.
He said there’s no much difference but the only difference is they(Nigerians) believe in the business aspect of music because they always travel to Ghana for media tour to promote their crafts unlike the Ghanaian artistes who do not go there to promote their works as well.
He believes that Ghanaians artistes feel okay at where they are and do not want to promote their works outside Ghana.
Master Garzy added that, Nigerian artistes have more friends in Ghana than Ghanaian artistes have in Nigeria. This he said is helping the Nigerians to organize media tours around Ghana without difficulties, giving them the edge to be invited over for most shows played in Ghana.
He advised Ghanaian artistes to push themselves out there so that they can also be invited for shows outside Ghana. He asked, “How many Ghanaian artistes have been invited to perform in Nigeria?” Yet we always wait for Nigerian artistes to grace our shows in Ghana.
He mentioned the likes of Wizkid, David, Burna Boy and Omah Lay flying into Ghana to promote their songs but not in the case of our Ghanaian artistes going to do same in Nigeria.
