Producer JMJ believes the Ghana female music scene is ‘dead’

The renowned Ghanaian Producer JMJ, known in private life as Joshua Raphaelson, believes the Ghanaian female music scene has become very quiet.

He attributed it to the current list of female artistes not putting in much more effort to sell their craft.

JMJ thinks the females have become either too complacent, too comfortable or aren’t putting in much effort to match the males in the game toe-to-toe.

“During the time of Kaakie I am sure you guys saw how active she was with her A-game and changing the scene so quickly. Same was MzVee and Ebony (of blessed memory) when they hopped on too – these 3 females directed all the traffic to their corner and gave us hits back to back nonstop. When these 3 pulled their plugs small and others came on, we can hardly see any female in that same light as them. Shouts to Wiyaala who is doing well out the, she could be an exception but the rest are still not there yet for me. Kaakie, MzVee and Ebony not being there has made that side of the game virtually dead”, Producer JMJ explained.
