We should focus on amplifying the strengths and not the negatives – E.L

E.L criticized individuals who often compare the Ghanaian music industry unfavorably to those of other African countries, emphasizing the negative impact on artists and industry players.

He urged Ghanaians to shift their focus to the positive aspects of the music industry and refrain from harshly criticizing artists when issues arise.

“I don’t know if it’s a Ghanaian thing, but we tend to focus on the negative. We tend to amplify the negative. What haven’t we got or what hasn’t he or she done? And I think that’s something that affects us very much in this industry.

“We are a small market, but I think we have capabilities that are not present in any other parts of Africa. So we should focus on our strengths. And I think that will help us to transcend to the next level. We are a little hard on ourselves. We tend to bash each other so much more than we tend to try to uplift,” he said.

E.L continued: “I don’t know if you’d agree with this, but we tend to focus more on what we’re not doing than what we are doing as creatives, as artistes. We’re in an industry where comparison is high. We look at what all these people are doing.”
