Tech Geek at the Multimedia Group Kwabena Nkrumah ( Kobby Spiky ) has challenged Ghanaian artist to try acapella music since they brag big time with the genre of music they do.
Acappella Music for those who do not know what it means is a choral music done without the accompaniment of artificial musical instruments.
In 2004, some of the Ghanaian Acappella groups that came to mind were Kumasi-based New Era, 3AM, who later become Blacappella, The Shepherds (defunct though), Chief Charles and the Missionaries but today it is difficult to locate such group of people doing the acapella music.
“Artistes should try releasing acapella albums and let’s see” Kobby expressed
So it didn’t seem like Acapella Music never existed in Ghana but the sad thing in this country is, no one is willing to associate with the small beginnings of a thing until that thing has become big and yielding substantial financial benefits. The culture of supporting small things to grow is not part of our national and individual principles. People are more likely to watch a small group with great potential struggle to make it and when they have, then you see everybody trying to associate themselves with that group, apparently with the motive of reaping where they have not sown.
