We managed to get a video from the communications team on one of the interviews. Several topics where discussed including the main objective of the Appietus National Music Project and what it means for the 10x lucky musicians to be selected at the later stage within the central region.
Mr. Appiah Dankwah explained that the project will bring about change in Show Business and set the tone for a healthy competition within and amongst all the ten regions where each region will have a Regional Album to promote and market it extensively within the region and beyond to makes waves all over the country. He explained that the move and its success will largely depend on the involvement of all stake holders within the entertainment industry of the Central Region and for that matter all other regions; that is Presenters, DJ’s ,Technical Programme directors ,video directors, fanatics and more. Last but not the least, having that regional agenda to fully support and promote your own products to the rest of the country and the world.
The Chairwoman of the Musicians Union of Ghana Central Region Chapter Nana Ekua Apeatsewah II, popularly known as Queen 1 speaking on the same topic elaborated that the project will initiate an unprecedented agenda for her administration, that is the development and production of the very first Regional Album under her watch as Chairwoman of Central Region Musiga and she is bent on making sure the project will be of a huge success and open opportunities to generate funds through donation and corporate contributions at the launch of the Album Concert slated for a later date after the completion of the selection process, recording and then finally release by December 2018.
