Music business should be taught in school – Ackablay says

A legendary highlife musician, Ackablay Anthony, has urged the administrators of universities in Ghana to introduce music business management as a an academic programme.

This, according to him, will help industry players acquire the requisite skills to promote Ghanaian music internationally.

He thinks the majority of industry players are ignorant about the business aspect of music, hence the need for them to be formally educated.

Just as in other professions, the veteran musician believes formal education will ensure seriousness and efficiency in the industry.

He made these comments in an interview with Roselyn Fellini on Prime Morning on Friday.

“The people who call themselves the music overseers in the industry don’t have any knowledge about how music or the industry are managed. I call them NATO (that is No Action Talk Only). They just know how to talk, but they don’t know how to do it, and it’s unfortunate we don’t have music business courses in the universities,” he said.

Ackablay further asserted that the industry is inactive because of the government’s neglect of the sector.
