Kumasi-based rapper, Flowking Stone has said it is difficult for artistes living outside Accra to make it in the Showbiz industry.
Speaking in an interview with Showbiz, the ‘Go low’ hitmaker indicated that most talented artistes who do not reside in the country’s capital struggle to penetrate outside their home regions.
“Everything is happening in Accra. Apart from all the connections and sponsors here, all the event centres are here in Accra, talk of the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), the National Theatre, the Fantasy Dome, the Banquet Hall of the State House just to mention a few,” he said.
“It looks like you need to be based in Accra before you make it big time. Almost all the A-list artistes are in Accra and that explains why most artistes are moving from the other regions to Accra,” he said.
Born Kwaku Nsiah Boamah, Flowking Stone disclosed that although he was one of the busiest artistes in the country last year, he was barely noticed because he performed 80% of his shows in Kumasi.
“I get almost 80 per cent of my shows in Kumasi, I was one of the busiest artistes last year but because I was in Kumasi, hardly did anyone notice me because all the focus was on Accra,” he disclosed.
