Data Cost Is Preventing Our Fans From Streaming Our Songs Online – Wendy Shay
The self-proclaimed “queen of Ghanaian music,” Wendy Asiamah Addo, better known by her stage name Wendy Shay, has identified that one of the obstacles preventing Ghanaians from streaming their music is the exorbitant cost of data bundles in the counrty.
According to her, musicians in Ghana often record fewer music streams than their counterparts in other African nations.
Wendy Shay called the situation troubling and urged celebrities to utilize their power to bring this particular issue to the attention of the relevant authorities.
“I now understand that data in Ghana is really expensive. After doing some investigation, I discovered that East African nations had lower data costs. You can see how many streams they have by visiting their YouTube channel and other streaming websites.
“I believe that as celebrities, we should determine the best course of action to take.” Even outsiders have expressed concern about this issue frequently, so we must utilize our influence to address it. Because of this, there are now fewer music streams available for Ghanaian singers than in other African nations, she told Nana Romeo of Accra FM.
