Every Ghanaian parents want their son or daughter to have a white color jobs here in Ghana.
Every Ghanaian parents dream is to have a their son or daughter pursuing law to become a lawyer, nurse, doctor, bank manager or manageress and many more
When their son or daughter wants to pursue music as his or her career, it becomes difficult for them to bear and they refuse to throw their support to their child.
This is because most Ghanaian parents have a bad perception about musician and how they portray themselves.
Other parents don’t want their son or daughter to choose music as their career because our system are not well structured so it becomes very difficult for an artiste to get income.
It seems like many artistes here in Ghana and part of the Western world have similar story when they wanted to choose music as their career.
We have heard cases where artistes grumble about how their parents neglected them when they chose music as their career.
International reggae icon Julius Amua-Sekyi, who is also known in the music space as Shasha Marley is a victim of such.
