Piracy Is Not Killing Our Music Industry – George Jahraa

George Jahraa

Contrary to several discussions and arguments raised by many music producers and musicians on the grievous effects of piracy on the Ghanaian music market, Veteran musician and Ashikeley hit maker George Jahraa believes piracy plays a minute role as it has assiduously declined unlike the days of ECOMOG who used to duplicate CDs across Africa.

Speaking on Kumasi based Hello fm, George Jahraa disclosed although piracy has a role to play; the Ghanaian music industry does not have adequate structures to ensure the right implementations are executed further stated the very few structures too were also not either strong enough or empowered to executive the right duties.

Asked if technology has had a critical effect on the music scene, George disclosed it was worrying to hear Ghanaian musicians cry foul of the rippling effects of technology which is piracy since the European countries who are well vested in technology still make good use of it and do not cry about piracy. He therefore advised Ghanaian musicians to better learn how well they could gain out of technology than cry foul of piracy.
