Ghanaian Reggae-Dancehall artiste, Michael Okine with the stage name Jupitar has cried foul over the ill-treatment meted out to him by some media houses when he wants to promote his songs.
According to him, most radio and television stations have favourites and if you are not on their list, your songs are relegated even when you try you best for it to be pushed.
Speaking to Merqury Quaye on the Daybreak Hitz Show on Hitz FM, the ‘Enemies’ hitmaker bemoaned how he has tried many times to get his songs played after submission to radio stations but they failed to do so.
“I take my time to submit my songs to a lot of radio stations in Ghana but they do not play them. Apart from one or two radio stations, when I release a song, they wouldn’t play. But if I go and slap somebody, they’d call me for interviews and things. I do not want to disrespect any radio station,” he said.
According to him, although he works so hard, he has little recognition because media houses have sabotaged him and his creative piece.
“Some people do not even know the last time I released a song but I do not blame them. Their favourite radio stations are not playing the songs,” he concluded.
