The fact that she doesn’t record and dump her songs on free sites for free downloads doesn’t mean her songs are not patronized in Ghana.
The fact that she doesn’t fake her life and looks doesn’t mean she isn’t liked by Ghanaian music fans.
The fact that she doesn’t live a very glamorous lifestyle doesn’t mean she ceases to be a Ghanaian musician.
The fact that she doesn’t Feature on your type of programs doesn’t mean she doesn’t Feature other programs.
All those so call pundits that speaks ill about her brand are the very people that never helps in pushing her. So if people abroad appreciate her talent more than you Ghanaians doesn’t mean she isn’t a Ghanaian female musician now. What are your so call female musicians doing in Ghana that she isn’t doing?
