Kwesi Martinezz, a seasoned entertainment pundit, has asked the Ghana government to devote as much attention to the creative arts space as he does to football in Ghana. According to Kwesi Martinezz, “musicians are better at raising the Ghanaian flag around the world than the national team. If only the Ghanaian government invested as much in the music industry as it does in the Black Stars”.
On Onua FM’s Anigye Mmere show on Monday, January 17, 2022, Martinezz said that Ghanaian musicians can carry the flag higher than the national team’s poor performance.
He suggested that “The way we spend on Blackstars and football in Ghana. If we should invest half into either Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, King Promise, Samini, Kidi or Kuami Eugene. They would have raised the flag of Ghana higher. How can you invest heavily into a team that’s performing abysmally and leave the creative arts”
He argued that Ghana’s investment into the national team does not make business sense.
“If you win Afcon, how much are you getting? 4.5 Million dollars, right? Look at the kind of investment that has gone into Blakstars. Does it make business sense? Without music, football is nothing. You can’t play football without music. We’re telling the government of Ghana that they can’t invest in Blakstars without paying critical attention to the creative art”.
