MANY INDUSTRY PLAYERS ENDORSE SUB-STANDARD AND STUPID PRODUCTIONS – ELORM BEENIE

In a bid to finding working and lasting solutions to many problems in the music industry in Ghana, Elorm Beenie asserted that many industry players are contributing factor to Ghana Music and its related marketing difficulties

Responding to a Facebook post by an Artist and Talent Manager, Farouk Kaabuame, as to what we are not doing right when it comes to Ghana Music Marketing on Tuesday, January 29, 2019, Elorm Beenie commented,

“Sub-Standard and stupid productions! Fast food music and stupid lyrics that don’t make sense are what many industry players defend and endorse because they don’t want to be REAL else they will lose their jobs or paymasters”

Elorm Beenie, who is the Editor at Beenie Words enumerated eight (8) other reasons for the failure in marketing Ghanaian music. These reasons are;

  1. Little or NO SERIOUS government support

  2. Laziness of artists

  3. Greed and ungrateful attitude of artists/Managers (and that has made promotions very expensive in Ghana now… I’m sure you know that very well)

  4. Pomposity and people refusing to learn

The PR Consultant at Africa 1 Media and CEO of Events 21 further added that,

  1. Putting square pegs in round holes (people who don’t know jack about how certain aspects of the industry runs realistically are just chopping titles and hype) #Posers

  2. Musicians and Managers hardly or don’t invest back into the craft. They want all for themselves. No upgrades whatsoever. They are only interested in booking returns

  3. Poor royalty system, the worst I should say!

  4. Musicians and Management don’t pay WELL the people on their team to go the extra mile for them. They don’t see the need to pay for inputs from other team members

Ansah-Addo Halifax, Editor-In-Chief at the Publisher Newspaper who also contributed to the discussion mentioned Wisdom Deficit as a problem bedeviling the industry

COVID-19: Singapore Set Aside S$1.6 million For Arts And Culture

SINGAPORE: About S$1.6 million will be set aside for the arts and culture sector as part of support for the community amid the COVID-19 outbreak, and to prepare the sector for “post-disease recovery”, announced Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Culture, Community and Youth Baey Yam Keng on Friday (Mar 6).

“We want cultural performances to continue during this time as the arts inspire us and lift our spirits, as long as necessary precautions are in place. This is what MCCY (Ministry for Culture, Community and Youth) agencies and institutions – including NAC (National Arts Council), NHB (National Heritage Board) and PA (People’s Association) – will commit to, where possible,” he said in his Committee of Supply speech.

“We also want to encourage arts and culture practitioners to take this opportunity to develop their capabilities and better position themselves for the future.”

Part of the S$1.6 million will include a subsidy of 30 percent for venue rental and associated costs for arts and culture activities from Mar 7 to Jun 30.

This will be applicable at national cultural institutions such as the Esplanade, Arts House Limited venues, and the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.

In addition, the National Arts Council will provide a one-time, enhanced capability development grant for individuals and arts organizations.

The aim of this grant, which will open to applications from Mar 16, is to promote upskilling and organizational capability development, said Mr. Baey.

These two initiatives are part of the Stabilisation and Support Package announced by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat during his Budget speech. The package was introduced to help stabilize the economy amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

“Arts groups and practitioners, including those who enjoy subsidized rentals under NAC’s arts housing scheme, can benefit from both initiatives,” said Mr. Baey.

The Package includes a training support scheme for self-employed persons, who will be paid S$7.50 per hour as training allowance when attending eligible programs.

NAC will continue working with SkillsFuture Singapore to curate arts and culture courses for arts freelancers to complement existing initiatives like the Arts Resource Hub.

“We encourage all eligible arts and culture professionals to tap on the available measures, including subscribing to the Arts Resource Hub, which is free, and prepare themselves for the post-COVID-19 upturn … We encourage arts practitioners to support one another during this time,” Mr. Baey said.
