Ghanaian content creators you need to know

As the world continues its rapid migration to digital, a select group of people continues to make the journey fun for a variety of audiences, with their contents.

Content creators are people who contribute information to any media, most especially to digital media. They target specific end-users or audiences in specific contexts such as blogs, news, image, video, audio, social media updates, and other related content.

From sharing information such as what do to think about as you age, as shared on this website, to how to get the most out of SunPan products, there is no limit to what content we can create or enjoy!

However, before you can create compelling and high converting content, there are some basics to understand, regarding the role of a content creator. Yes, content creation is not for everyone. Content creation, as an activity, an art form and a professional pursuit is a niche that requires you to be organized and creative, analytical and associative, disciplined and diverse.

Becoming a good and successful content creator doesn’t happen overnight. It is fair to say that you can be a good content creator and not become successful at it; and you can also be successful at it without being that great!

To become a good and successful content creator it is ideal to: read news about your industry every day, write on the regular, study your industry’s audience, establish your own voice, curate other people’s content (when it makes sense to), understand your KPIs, network at every opportunity, offer solutions, not just commentary; and question everything!

Around the world, digital content creators are amongst the most discussed phenomenon. Brands search for them, ready to pay for all sorts of promotions. They are not bloggers anymore but not celebrities yet either. They usually have beautiful pictures with thousands of likes and comments on Instagram, or have hugely popular channels on YouTube with millions of views. They teach their audience how to dress, how to do makeup, how and where to travel, or simply make them laugh with their skits and sense of humour.

The content creation culture in Ghana has a combination of unique attributes as well as a lot of what happens elsewhere around the world. Some individuals have emerged with substantial content and audience, in a variety of formats and platforms. From amazing content on Tiktok to YouTube, Instagram and more, it is clear that video contents are on the rise in Ghana.  Here are some Ghanaian video content creators to keep an eye on.
