Ace Ghanaian rapper Kwame Ametepee Tsikata, widely known in the music business as M.anifest has opined on the difficulties faced by creatives amid the current hardships in the country.
He revealed that the situation is indeed taking a heavy toll on musicians in Ghana, looking at how the cedi is frequently depreciating against major foreign currencies.
The one-time VGMA rapper of the year said the cedi’s recent remarkable performance on the currency market has since not changed anything, citing the continuous surge in the prices of goods in the local market.
In an interview with Accra-based Y107.9 FM’s Akosua Hanson on Y Lounge, M.anifest told his fellow acts to be cautious and vigilant in their work and follow the right path to achieve success.
“It is an intriguing time, but you know when you open your eyes, your heart, and move intentionally. You might be surprised,” he noted.
“So, I think it’s a time of possibility but also a time of difficulty. It’s a great big paradox we are in. Possibility and difficulty are now bedfellows. So you have to figure out which way you’re smooching it,” he said.
