It is not enough for us to be successful at what we do. We must lift, the next generation of artists, music executives, entertainment lawyers, entrepreneurs et al., as we climb. I am delighted to read this wonderful news of UK based Ghanaian artist Stephanie Benson doing just that. Congrats Stephanie. This is an absolutely good look on you. Thank you for your contributions to Africa and Africa’s music industry.
“UK based Ghanaian international singer and performer, Stephanie Benson has announced the establishment of a state-of-the-art music school in Accra, as a means of giving back to her country. In an interview, an excited Stephanie said “I have done a lot of charity work in the UK and feel that it is time to do something for my own country. That’s the main reason I am establishing a music school in Accra. We have wonderful people in Ghana who are doing incredibly well, but I can help improve the music business in Ghana with my input ’’.
The Benson Entertainment Production Institute (BEP for short), according to her, would comprise a modern sound recording studio, which would be used for training and commercial purposes. The Facility also intends to develop Professional International Theatre standards for musical theatre shows, stage musical concerts, rehearsal space and TV shows. . . ” Ameyawdebrah.com via SpyGhana has the full story.
