“Why do we have to go international? American artistes stay in their country and make money” – Edem quizzes

Ghanaian recording artist and entertainer, Denning Edem Hotor with the stage name Edem has questioned the perception the public has about the need for an international presence by all local artists.

Speaking to Sammy Forson on the Daybreak Hitz Show on Hitz FM an Accra based station, Edem said he doesn’t believe in the assertion that artistes need to go international before they can make money or be relevant.

The ‘Toto’ hitmaker held onto the that local artistes can also make money in their country and do not necessarily have to have an international touch to make it.

Edem likened the situation that persists in the States to Ghana. He added that if artistes can make money and stay on top of their games in their country, it shouldn’t stop local from doing the same.

“Why do we have to go international? artistes stay in their country and make money. We can also make money and stay relevant in our country,” he said.

Edem also defended his earlier sayings that Ghanaian artistes are hungry but cannot come out to admit it. According to him, the issue must be addressed as soon as possible and proper structures must be put in place to ensure the welfare of creative minds.
