“Why Nigerian Artists Are More Successful Than Other Africans” – D-Black Says

Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, the Ghanaian rapper and singer, who is also known as D-Black, has recognized business acumen as the sole reason Nigerian artists are more successful than their Ghanaian counterparts.

He said Nigerian artists are business-driven meanwhile their Ghanaian colleagues make music just for the love of the art.

Speaking in a recent episode of The Afrobeats Podcast, D-Black said, “Why Nigerian records are flying higher than the Ghanaian ones is because Ghanaian artists don’t really care about the money. They don’t care about the business. It’s just the love of art which overpowered everything. There’s really no business behind it.
