Award winning Gospel musician Diana Hamilton has urged Creative Art Industry authorities to look out for ways that can be of benefit to industry players amidst covid-19 pandemic.
She added that the country should learn from other countries who have still made their industry set in motion even during Covid-19 period.
Speaking with Emefa Apawu on Beyond the lockdown, she said:
“I have been privileged to have been able to register my works with foreign registering bodies and that is what works for us.”
“So even though we are not making things out in Ghana, they are tripping in from various sides.”
Diana admitted that the covid 19 has affected the industry as well as reduced revenue.
“Yes revenue has come down but I will like to look at the glass half full instead of half empty. So I think this is what bodies in Ghana need to look into is how we can able able to generate income from our works in Ghana.”
The influx of the Coronavirus pandemic has affected most sectors and the creative industry is of no exception. Due to this, creative industry players are forced to generate income from other sources like through downloads and online streaming.
Diana Hamilton stated that if the authorities in the creative industry are able to be innovative and bring out ideas to the benefit of industry players, it would be very beneficial.
