It is often said that Ghana lacks the right bodies and labels go grow talent. However, few record labels have re-written the narrative; developing talent and indulging in the rightful exploitation of these talents.
Recently, I came across a group of individuals who told me that their goal is to front Ghanaian artistes that would be able to perform on the world stage. This is a pledge that many have made in the past, but speaking to Remy J Classics and his partner, Maurice Enyo Awuku they presented themselves as equiped and determined.
ProMusic is a record label both men began as a USA-Ghana partnership and have since quietly built the structures that would make them formidable. Speaking to Remy J Classics, he explained that he’s managed a few Ghanaian musicians in the past and his partnership with his USA counterpart was born out of the necessity to see Ghanaian music thrive.
ProMusic is set to launch in Ghana soon and are looking to sign a few artistes on lucrative deals. The label bosses stated that they’ve spent the past months establishing connections and relationships within the American media and music scenes and they are finally ready to sign artistes.
“We’ve spotted some artistes that are challenging the levels of creativity and it’s our hope to sign a few of them”, Maurice Enyo Awuku stated. ” Medikal, Gemini, Worlasi, Baza, Ayat, Spicer, Blackboi, Akan and a few more have been cleared by our board as potential signees and in the next few weeks, we hope to extend a deal to them”, he affirmed.
