[Celebrity Gist] ‘I’m with you brother’ – Sarkodie’s Reaction To Edem’s Post Of Artists Being ‘Hungry’ In This Crisis

Award-winning Ghanaian musical act, Edem took to his twitter handle to reveal what he saw as the biggest plight of Ghanaian artistes. The rapper in a series of tweets stated that all artistes in Ghana, himself inclusive are hungry. Edem disclosed that the current coronavirus pandemic has blatantly shown how poor the systems and structures in the music industry are. He explained that the current system does not provide any form of support to any artiste. They do their best by working hard on their craft, yet there is no system in place to aid them to make enough money off it, so they are all hungry.

He added that judging from the daunting experience of the aged musicians; it is evident that the future has something similar in store for them. Which he said should never be the case, old artistes must not have to go round soliciting for support.

Furthermore, he urged his colleagues to stop pretending as though everything is all right because they are all suffering during this Covid-19 pandemic. However, B Black reacting to Edem’s claims noted that not all of them are actually hungry as he says. Some of them have invested smartly into businesses aside from music. He has not had to depend on his music career for over four years now. Therefore, these hard times should be a wakeup call for artistes to think about the need to invest outside their music careers.
