Media houses have used and dumped me – Kofi Jamar

Ghanaian artist Kofi Jamar has revealed some startling facts regarding the nation’s media outlets.

The “Ekorso” hitmaker states that during his peak, he had several requests for interviews from media outlets, which he made time for despite his hectic schedule.

In an interview with Property FM, he said that he went because he wanted to establish a positive relationship with the media outlets, even though he had every right to reject them.

He revealed that because he hasn’t put out any big songs in a while, it is now very difficult for him to get those same media outlets to interview him.

“Let me emphasize this, when Ekorso went viral and the song was everywhere and I remember when a lot of radio and TV stations were chasing me for interviews. Every media house from left and right like we had to make time for all of them cos they’re media houses and personalities we respect them a lot,” he said.

He went on to add “And we wanted to establish a long-term relationship with them and here is the case where I don’t have a hit song like Ekorso at the moment. I’m trying to go to those same radio stations and media houses for an interview now and it becomes hard for me, I think that’s where the problem comes from”

The musician revealed how he was told “This industry is known for the fact that when you’re coming as a new artiste we have experienced gatekeepers who warn you to be careful of the industry cos if you don’t take care they’ll use you and dump you”.
