Award-winning blogger, Joseph Atule Atanga, known in showbiz circles as Gh Blinks, has asked entertainers within northern Ghana to build long-lasting relationships with bloggers and other relevant publishers within the entertainment industry.

This, he said, would help these entertainers build a huge presence on the internet, grow beyond the borders of the north, and become more recognized nationally and globally.

While admitting that music in northern Ghana may not be as profitable, and as such, entertainers may not have all the funds at their disposal to splash on publishing, they could build relationships and leverage these relationships for growth.

Gh Blinks made these comments when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show with Mark Smith.

“There are people who would contact me to write things about them, and I won’t even bother to ask them to pay because of the relationship we have created,” he said.

The blogger explained that the entertainers are often unable to build these relationships because of issues of entitlement, furthering a comment also made by renowned broadcaster, Ibrahim Aziz, on the same platform.

Renowned broadcaster in the Upper East Region, Ibrahim Aziz, popularly referred to as Lexis, has expressed worry about the difficulty in finding information about creatives in northern Ghana and their work on the internet.

This means that people outside northern Ghana do not get to see, enjoy, and interact with the work of these entertainers or notice the influence within the space in which they work.

Lexis explained that this has become the case because these creatives have done and continue to do little to have their work properly documented. He associated this with sheer ignorance and a sense of entitlement.

He made these comments when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show yesterday, Friday, May 3, 2024.

“If you want to thrive, regardless of your location, first of all, you have to have a good manager. You must know who a good manager is. We find ourselves in an industry where if someone is able to give you clothes, someone is able to finance you, then that person is your manager, but there is a difference between a financier and a manager.”

“As an artist, you should have a manager, a road manager, and a publicist. This person should have something to write about you almost every 24 hours. These are things they lack,” he said.
