A LETTER TO POLITICAL LEADERS AND OTHERS IN TATALE – SANGULI CONSTITUENCY – HELP THE GROWING MUSIC INDUSTRY TO DEVELOP
All over the years, politicians keep promising “heaven ” for development yet the music industry is left unattended to.
A lot of our youth now patronise contemporary music than the indigenous ones .The kind of following they have with the powers they wield on the public remains inexplicable.
Every politician knows rationally that political power is possible only if the youth root for it .The new crop of musicians working hard to give and propel Tatale’s name into limelight need to be supported.
They have a formidable association that is struggling to stand on its feet for various predicaments. In fact, no furniture for meetings ,poor funding to produce songs and videos as well as always taking the pain to rent stage craft and PA systems for their programs.
We have heard donations and support schemes politicians roll out for other developmental sectors but oblivious of what entertainment can do too.
It won’t be misplaced if part of the Common Fund of which I am aware is supposed to cater for this jurisdiction begins to support them.
Recently ,I was enthused to hear the good works of the District Assembly under the Environmental and Sanitation Department taking up the mantle to award Ngaribiba Action for his sterling contribution through music to the sector. It simply eased my coma on the neglect and denigration of the highly cherished music industry.
Even though the gesture is commendable ,more of such initiatives if advanced can help in attaining the desirous goals of the industry in turn.
For records sake ,over 90% of the works of these musicians are under personal sponsorship rendering talents without money or resources to perish and diminish .It is hefty and hectic to see good talents perishing with a promising future for lack of support from our leaders.
It will gladden hearts if all the leaders especially the DCE ,MP and other aspiring leaders sow seeds into this venture for an indelible legacy in the face of the public.
You never know when and how this young and talented musicians can be of help to your political vision and mission.
I therefore call on all and sundry, sound and benevolent citizenry of the locality to help in this course of development in your own little or much ways.
Remember, good leaders or citizens are only remembered and adored for their immense impact on the people like our growing musicians.
In conclusion, our young and upcoming musicians need help from our leaders and anyone on whose whims and caprices they can thrive on.Bassares have a saying that “elders show their leadership by grey hairs that will brighten the future of the younger generation”.
The musicians can’t wait to draw this inspiration from your support now or in the very near future.
God bless our homeland and keep the faith of development standing upright for Tatale-Sanguli and Mother Ghana.
