Specifically, it’s very difficult in our Ghanaian music industry to attract the attention of managers, producers, sound engineers or labels and get them interested in your music. For this reason, some of our artists are finding it difficult to make a breakthrough or “blow” and also become noticeable or popular.

However, the following steps are going to help you to achieve that breakthrough because you also need to understand the business side of things to blow as an artist.
