Samuel Awuni, also known as “Sobolo The Boss MC”, has stated the challenges associated with being an MC in the Upper East Region of the country. According to him, it’s difficult to rely solely on MCing as a source of income in this region because MCs are not adequately recognized, and as a result, they are often not included in the budgets for most events.
“MCs cannot depend solely on MCing as a source of income in the Upper East Region due to a lack of recognition and inclusion in event budgets, highlighting a significant issue in the region’s entertainment industry,” he explained.
“It’s unfortunate that many event organizers may not fully appreciate the value that MCs bring to their events. As mentioned earlier, MCs play a vital role in ensuring the smooth flow and success of events. Their skills in engaging the audience, managing transitions, and creating a vibrant atmosphere are indispensable,” he added.
Sobolo pointed out that in other regions, MCs are able to monetize their skills, but the same cannot be said for the Upper East Region. He believes that event organizers and various stakeholders should consider including professional MCs in their event budgets.
