Read excerpt from interview below;

"We are 30 million people in all of Ghana. Is that not less than Lagos? I try to explain to them that there are more opportunities in Nigeria, there are more things happening in Nigeria, only because Nigeria has been termed the hub of entertainment in Africa.

"And of course there is the cooperate sponsorship, and there's finances to make the industry what it is. I try to explain to them that there are less opportunities in Ghana because we are a smaller country, and we are don't have enough numbers to back up a lot of stuff that we are doing, which is pretty much not in our favour.

" So for Ghana, we definitely have to think outside the box to be able to break out. We have to be different. We have to be bold. We have to be unique."
