Refuting claims about the Nigerian music industry not supporting Ghanaian music, Joel Ofori Bonsu, popularly known as OliveTheBoy revealed that Ghanaian songs do get appreciated in Nigeria contrary to what most Ghanaian music lovers have been mad to believe.
In an exclusive interview with MX24, the fast-rising Ghanaian singer indicated that Ghanaian music is actually gaining international prominence in both in and outside Africa.
Citing examples to back his claim, OliveTheBoy made references to the likes of King Promise, Black Sheriff and Akwaboah who have been making waves in the international music space.
Sharing his view on beliefs that Ghanaian music is not well appreciated by Nigerians, the Good hitmaker debunked such claims stating that Ghanaian music actually gets airplay in Nigeria in contravention to what most Ghanaians have been made to believe.
Furthermore, he stated that he has been to Nigeria and is privy to the fact that they play and support Ghanaian music a lot.
He further disclosed that, he was in Nigeria when he heard a radio station playing songs from Ghanaian high-life singer, Akwaboah.
OliveTheBoy went on to say that considering the fact that Akwaboah usually sings in Twi, he felt it was so random to hear his songs being played in Nigeria.
Divergent to this fact, he heard them playing a number of his songs hence he feels it’s just Ghanaians who don’t notice the support but they actually do support Ghanaian music.
