when the year started in 2017, most of us in the Ghanaian entertainment industry did not enter with confidence because the year looked slow for the arts.
It was like that because a new president had been elected and there was the need to usher in the presidency, there was a budget to be read by the sector minister and many more issues that took away our attention. Of course, the politicians wanted to rule again even in a new year but thanks to Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, we had a mouth again and we started another revolution.
Whether the revolution lived long or not is another issue to be looked at as Joe Mettle and his charges took centre stage with their gospel take over.
Yes, Joe Mettle won the 2017 artiste of the year in the Vodafone Ghana Music awards. We believe and hope the man is still enjoying his reigns as the king of Ghana`s music industry in the year under review. Social media has not left him alone as there is pressure for him to even do more because to such people, the kingship is no joke for him to sleep over the crown.
Fast forward to now and the system was too slow except some single releases which were put out by some top artistes and others up and coming as well. The race is now getting close to the finished line and followers of the industry are now feeling the speed at which some artistes are releasing products into the system.
Becca and Sarkodie are in the news currently for releasing albums unto the music market and it feels good that some people still have confidence in album releases. Whilst Becca calls her album Unveiling which talks about the rebirth of her brand after 10 years of achieving relevance, Sarkodie calls his album Highest.
Each of them has interacted with the media over their release for listening and premiering and we at Flex newspaper are proud to say that the two albums are dope. The contribution on the various albums is worth talking about.

Sep 11, 2017 0There is too much chaos in our entertainment industry today and I am sometimes forced to ask myself whether or not we are serious to grow as an industry. From the days of ‘I told you so’ through to Osofo Dadzie’s Akan drama to our current movie days, I can’t boast of any...
