He further said getting massive airplay in London demands extra work and “reputable leaks to the gatekeepers” so any artiste who is able to breakthrough the UK market deserves accolades.
Young Energy also added that when your songs make waved in Ghana, you automatically penetrate through the Ghanaian community in the UK but they “Africa artistes bases in the United Kingdom” are suffering to breakthrough because most DJ’s don’t play their songs to encourage the update and coming musicians.
“Most often the Alordia’s and the Akwabaa UK who are noted for championing Ghana music in London do not even give opportunities to the London based Ghanaian musicians for reasons best known to them”, Young Energy stated.
He continued that, Fuse ODG, Reggie and Bollie in recent times have been able to push Ghana music beyond the African boundaries which give more hope to the upcoming ones that they can equally make it despite the frustrations that pose as a challenge.
