"Data costs are keeping Ghanaians from streaming our music," Wendy Shay bemoans
Even outsiders have expressed concern about this issue frequently, so we must utilize our influence to address it.
Dancehall musician Wendy Shay from Ghana bemoaned how many Ghanaians are unable to broadcast their music online due to the high cost of bandwidth.
The majority of Ghanaian artists, according to Wendy Shay, do not receive as many streams as their international counterparts.
Wendy Shay revealed that the high cost of data in Ghana is keeping Ghanaians from streaming their music as the reason for the low number of streams of their tracks.
She said that her analysis revealed that most nations have lower data costs than Ghana.
"I now understand that data in Ghana is really pricey. After doing some investigation, I discovered that East African nations have lower data costs.
You can see how many streams they have by visiting their YouTube channel and other streaming websites.
"I believe that as celebrities, we should determine the best course of action to take. Even outsiders have expressed concern about this issue frequently, so we must utilize our influence to address it. Because of this, Ghana now has less music streams available for artists than other African nations, according to Nana Romeo of Accra FM.
Wendy revealed that most Ghanaians prefer to download their music from other websites when she was asked why they don't stream it.
"I believe that Ghanaians are progressively becoming accustomed to streaming. They need to cease downloading music from websites like YouTube and others. They ought to attempt to sign up on these streaming websites as well. That's how we can also take care of our own needs for food, she insisted. ”
