Sir Walker indicated that the collaboration was a sign that the industry was being recognised and a little push would fine tune it.

He observed that Nigerians were grooming their artistes well to attract international collaborations and called for Ghanaians to do same.


In order for the country’s artistes to attract foreign collaboration, Akosua Boatemaa stated that key industry players had to put much effort in the selling of the country’s art.

Akosua Boatemaa expressed joy about the way Shatta wale broke grounds to sell his brand to the international market and urged other artistes to emulate his steps.
