Over the years, we have seen artists utilize platforms like Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, and Facebook to generate growth in their careers. Social media continues to give musicians the opportunities they previously could only have through record companies.

In Ghana the story is not different, we have had top acts abandon main stream media to start promotions online and yield positive results. So important has social media become that it is impossible to think of succeeding at music business today without it. Clout, control, style, brand, top of mind awareness, engagements, likes and followership speaks to one’s relevance on social media.
