Reigning Ghana Music Artiste of the year, Elorm Adablah, known in showbiz as EL, is raising concerns about too much commercialisation of music to the detriment of content.
According to him, most songs being released by music artistes lately are empty.
“It’s become so much more about commercialisation of the music and it’s lost a lot of its soul regrettably,” he told host of 3FM’s Urban Blend, Miriam Osei Agyemang.
EL who controversially beat competition from five other musicians to emerge the music champion for 2015 claimed only a few mainstream artistes in the country represent rap music in its true sense.
“You have rap artistes these days without mentioning names who are not talking about anything but just use beats and that is not the way to go,” he observed.
