UK-based Ghanaian music duo Reggie ‘n’ Bollie have disclosed that their success at the 2015 edition of X Factor UK was as a result of the experiences they gathered performing on TV3’s Music Music.
According to the duo, it felt like they were staging a performing on the erstwhile Saturday night entertainment programme, which saw musicians come to entertain fans.
The duo, who are currently in Ghana to among other things perform at British High Commission’s bash on Queen Elizabeth’s birthday, were sharing their career strides at the maiden Music Business Dialogue on Thursday, May 31 at the premises of TV3.
The Dialogue, which was under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture together with its agencies – the Creative Arts Council, the Ghana Tourism Authority – in partnership with Media General, led a conversation around monetizing opportunities within the creative industry.
Key industry players Conrad Nyur, the General Manager of Mobile Content Limited, Abraham Ohene Djan, the CEO of Fiesta TV and OM Studios, and Francis Doku, the General Manager of MG Digital, who were on the panel shared some insights about monetizing the creative arts.
Sharing their experiences, the duo said their performance at the final of the UK-based talent reality show got many interested in knowing how they prepared for it.
But they explained it was the same kind of preparations they made back then before performing on Music Music.
They said the standard of Music Music required some rigorous and meticulous preparation before getting the platform and it was the same spirit that took them through the X Factor competition.
The duo also added their voice to the many calls from experts and stakeholders for a collaborative effort in building the Ghanaian creative arts industry.
