Renowned Ghanaian singer Adina Thembi has bemoaned the lack of encouragement given to female musicians in the music industry.
She claims that there are more obstacles for female musicians in the business, obstacles that may be overcome with the right help.
Adina emphasized that industry stakeholders should aggressively establish a support system to assist women in meeting the appropriate criteria and achieving their targets in an interview with Graphic Showbiz that was aired on 1Family Radio.
“We should all be intentional. That is the only way we can help our female acts grow,’’ Adina noted.
“If we see them making the effort to climb the ladder, we should support them to go up the rungs so they won’t feel left out.’
“It is just a way of boosting their creativity and helping them reach a wider community,’’ she added.
She said that encouraging female musicians is essential to the expansion and diversity of the music business. Adina pleaded with legislators, business executives, and associations to support female artists’ success by offering them opportunity, materials, and mentorship.
