Ghanaian Singer and “Obiaa ny3 obiaa” hitmaker, Barima Sidney has appealed to the government to separate Creative Arts from the Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry.
According to him, he believes tourism is taking all the attention and neglecting the creative arts industry.
I think she is doing well but the only thing I will say is, it is not her fault but I think combining tourism and creative arts is something the president needs to look at because tourism is taking everything from the creative arts. Tourism is big and they are pumping a lot of money in tourism and neglecting creative arts“.
“So we will plead with the president to separate the two. Put the Tourism somewhere and let’s have the creative arts too,” Sidney appealed.
The Ministry was created in 2013 by the NDC government to foresee and regulate organisations and activities under tourism and creative arts in the country.
Barima Sydney just released “One Day”, a highlight of the year 2018. He also disclosed he will be working with other artists on various projects this year.
He’s also set to release “State of Affairs,” which is his assessment of the Akufo-Addo government on March, 6.
