Speaking in interview with Melvina Frimpong Manso on Suncity 97.1 FM’s Showbiz 971 in Sunyani, Bulldog disclosed that it takes selflessness and love for someone to pump money into the Ghanaian entertainment industry.
“Acts is like a curtain. It covers all our problems. If you look at USA and Great Britain, they have a lot of problems but they use act…close your eyes and dream over America. All you see is the Denzel Washington, the Jay Z’s, Beyonce…etc. Recently, Nigeria is doing it very well as well. I mean the challenges in Nigeria are immense but if you think about it all that comes into mind is Dbanji, Davido, Wizkid and others,” he posited.
“I think we need that image as well to help us…and to do that one needs to be selfless and have love…put branding, the whole nations brand at heart. That’s when they can devote time and investment. Once we have that on the top of our heads, we will get somewhere. But if your intention is to just make the money back, it is not a powerful business,” Bulldog added.
The Veteran Artiste Manager eulogized the CEO of Zylofon Media, Nana Appiah Mensah for his unprecedented contributions to the entertainment industry in Ghana.
“I will say God should bless Nana Appiah Mensah wherever he is. He has done what nobody has done in the history of Ghana since independence. Because to sign on artiste at the top and bottom and change them to the next level…we all know where Stonebwoy,Becca and Obibini were until Zylofone media came in…and how we have made them work in comfort,” he said.
According to him, investments made in the industry are so hard to recoup—but the CEO of Zylofon Media is ready to pump in money and he needs a lot of prayers and support from all of us.
“I wish in 2018, we see a lot more investors like that. The work is difficult and we need a lot of such people to support us. I hope we will double up whatever we did. I am hoping a lot more talent will be unearth. There are a lot of undergrounds but they are not being discovered due to financial constrains,” Bulldog said on his expectation for the New Year.
