GhanaMusic.com is 20 years old this August 10th, after years of feeding patrons with the best of music content that the continent has to offer.
The journey throughout these 2 decades has been a worthwhile experience of many successes and hurdles in liaising between artistes and the final consumer.
Starting as a hobby on an old Pentium PC 20 years ago, despite difficulties with Internet connectivity and content availability, itâ€™s hard to believe that this prestigious website has been able to fuel up the lives of Ghanaians both home and abroad with the style, artistry, drama, controversies and songs of our hitmakers for all these years.
Despite setbacks and challenges that sprung up along the way, Ghanamusic.com forged its way through the hearts of millions of netizens and subscribers over the years to become the leading site for the latest single releases, music videos, interviews, trending stories and updates in the world of music.
From your favorite Highlife and Hiplife artistes right down to the trending Afrobeat and Asaaka generation, Ghanamusic.com has been at the forefront of promoting Ghanaian music content to the world and plays a major role in connecting Ghanaian artistes to a global fanbase.
Due to its reverence by the Ghanaian music consumer and the entertainment industry as a whole, major events held in Ghana have partnered with ghanamusic.com.
Some of these events include the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Ghana Meets Naija, Chris Brown In Ghana, Ghana Music Awards UK, Cardi B Live in Ghana, Ghana National Gospel Music Awards, Sarkodieâ€™s Rapperholic Concerts, among several others.
In commenting on the milestone attained, Nii Atakora Mensah, Head of Content Creation and Acquisition at MiPROMO Media â€“ the parent company of GhanaMusic.com stated, â€œIt is no secret that we have been one of the main backbones behind the successful careers of major artistes in Ghana since 2001.
Our track record over the years has birthed many other talents and blogs for the industry and served as a blueprint in promoting Ghanaian talents to the world. On this august occasion, we are hopeful that in the next 20 years, our platform would have continued to project and connect many untapped talents to their fans across the globeâ€.
It is instructive to note that in spite of the popular craze in harnessing free downloads and negative controversies to boost the traffic of other similar sites, GhanaMusic.com over these 2 decades has achieved the same objective by doing the contrary.
It has stood its ground in ensuring that visitors develop a streaming/purchasing culture of songs and get to know more of the positive and career-enhancing news stories of artists â€“ a trait that has surprisingly kept our numbers growing over the years!
