Emmanuel Andrew Samini known in showbiz as Samini has said that it’s improper for the government to support the creative arts industry.
According to the reggae artist, it is never right for the government to invest in the Culture and Creative Art Ministry.
“I personally don’t think it’s the priority of the government or any state institution to empower the creative art. What they need from artist or a musician is for you to come help them get loud when they need to.
“When they finish with the campaign and everything and they don’t need to get loud with a song, they don’t need you so they don’t see why they should come and empower the industry that has your back so that you can sell your music and make money, you can make royalties from your money.”
The “Ethiopia” hitmaker, speaking to Benjamin Akakpo on Accra based Class FM monitored by GhanaNewsPage.com added that he is too young to become the next president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) because his fans need him on stage more than the office.
He answered: ““I think I’m too young for that. In Obour’s case, I think he had done what he needed to do on stage and he was ready to give up the stage for office, I think the stage needs me more than the office at the moment.”
