Talented multifaceted entertainer, Alpha Bz, reaches out to authorities to restructure the Ghana music industry to enable young talented artists to showcase their talent

Alpha Bz is known for his advocacy for content creators, using every opportunity to talk about the plight of entertainers in Ghana and how to move the industry forward. He recently shared his view about the Ghana music industry, when he suggested a restructure of the industry to create an enabling environment for young, talented acts to showcase their craft and excel.

The global music space has witnessed a series of evolution and Africa has contributed immensely to the growth. Ghanaremains one of the biggest entertainment markets in Africa, with several talented artists coming out of the industry. Unfortunately, the Ghana music industry continues to lag, especially in the modern day music business, as highlighted by the likes of Alpha Bz.

Consequently, the sound engineer and music producer is looking to provoke relevant authorities to take the bull by the horns and help the industry grow by supporting young and upcoming acts.

“Alpha Bz” who featured Koo Ntakra “Togging” on his single, which will be released  October 15th, stated that Ghana is endowed with several good artists like Rocky Dawuni, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy and a host of others. However, he shared his view on the need to give upcoming young artists the support to become global superstars like the aforementioned.

In a related development, the management team of Alpha Bz, Tune Click, is in the process of signing one of the high school talented kids called Jardon. Jardon will be introduced to the music industry in the coming weeks once the deal is done. Jardon has already started to gain traction with experts who have heard him sing, describing the high school kid as the next Vybe Kartel while comparing him with great rappers like Nas and Jay Z.

Alpha Bz has also announced the release of his single “Togging” featuring Koo Ntakra. According to his management team, the song will be available on www.tuneclick.live two (2) weeks prior to the release date and fans and music lovers worldwide are encouraged to support the dream as music has always been the food for the soul.

Tune Click can also be found across several social media platforms, including Instagram and YouTube.

What is SXSW Music Festival?

SXSW, also known as South by Southwest, is the world’s biggest festival of its kind. The event, which takes place in Austin – Texas, brings together over 160,000 fans to a barrage of musical performances, conferences, film premieres, and several mini-events that characterize art. This year’s event comes between the 10th and 19th of March 2023; it will, as usual bring the What’s Next in Tech, Film, Music, and beyond to patrons of the event and the world.

Which Ghanaian artists have performed on the SXSW Music Festival stage?

In 2019, Africa was prioritized by the organizers of the SXSW Music Festival with an “Africa to the World” theme. The event featured a myriad of Africa’s finest musicians and many others. Representing Ghana was Jojo Abot, Stonebwoy, and Efya. In 2023, Dr. Pushkin is honored to represent Ghana on the show.

In a conversation with Dr. Pushkin, he indicated how excited he was about the opportunity. While commenting on it, he mentioned the crew he’s mounting the stage with. According to the “Lies” and “Wake Up” rapper, Ghana’s undisputed tongue-twist specialist, Budukusu, will join him on stage.

The two rappers have collaborated on three songs off Dr. Pushkin’s latest album. And since they’ve been hanging around a lot lately, they are working some magic as a team. Also on Dr. Pushkin’s crew for SXSW 2023 will be Aggie and AZA, featured on “Forgive them” and “No Regrets,” respectively, on the Outlandish album. Selecta Rah of Club Bantu fame will be the crew’s official Deejay as they mount the stage to thrill and awaken the audience.

Dr. Pushkin’s performance comes on the heals of Jojo Abbot, Efya, and Stoneboy who graced the event in 2019 as Ghanaians.
