Include country music in the VGMA categories
The composer of the current pledge and anthem of the Ghana Air Force, Wing Commander Samuel Allotey, in an interview with Graphic Showbiz, stated that the music industry in Ghana is being denied a whole genre of music that is quiet popular elsewhere. "First, we see the genre as foreign, because of its mid- western origins. Meanwhile, the likes of dancehall were also unknown till we became used to them and now have artistes fighting over who is the best and cashing in on the genre. People also think of country songs as music for oldies and expats within an aristocratic society. What such people fail to see is that some of the songs we enjoy today were originally country music." The former aide de camp to the late President Rawlings is also calling on promoters of songs, especially disc jockeys and presenters to help stir up interest in the country music genre.
