Seasoned Ghanaian actress and producer, Juliet Ibrahim has joined the debate on what is responsible for the snubbing of Ghanaian artistes during the recently held CAF awards which took place in Ghana.
According to the actress, until Ghanaian entertainers re-brand themselves and look beyond the nation, they will continue to be overlooked during international events.
Juliet’s call comes following calls by some artistes and entertainment critics on parliament to establish a law to ensure that events held in Ghana have Ghanaian artistes dominating during performances.
The actress and mother of one believes that most artistes and entertainers in Ghana do not look beyond the horizons of Ghana and that has been their problem over the years.
To press home the essence of the re-branding process, she tweeted:
”When we brand ourselves locally, we will continue to stay recognized locally. Ghanaian artistes shld step out of their comfort zones & expand their horizons. Only a few has been able to do this & those few are d ones who’ll keep taking out country’s flag higher”.
“So, bottom line, there’s a time for everything.Maybe this is a wake up call for Ghanaian artistes/Entertainers and Ghana as a whole to wake up and start re-branding and appreciating their own.Let’s stop complaining and use our energy to do the right thing to be valued accordingly”
