“Lagos Is Bigger Than Ghana” – Ghana’s Efya Shares Opinion In The Nigeria/Ghana Comparison

Renowned musician Efya disputes claims that the music scenes in Ghana and Nigeria are similar, claiming that Lagos is “bigger” than Ghana and her comment on the comparison has senr social media into a frenzy. According to Efya, Nigeria’s music business enjoys a competitive advantage over the Ghanaian market due to its larger population. She revealed this in a recent interview with Lagos’s City 105.1 FM. Instead of making direct comparisons between the two West African nations, she suggested that they concentrate on working together.

In her words;

“Nigerian and Ghanaian music markets are not the same. Nigerians are way more than we are in terms of numbers. Numbers really matter now. The number of people that will stream Nigerian music in Nigeria is different from the number of people that will stream Ghanaian music in Ghana. The numbers are not the same.

“In the capacity of numbers, Lagos is bigger than Ghana. It is like the music hub itself. Nigerians are way bigger than we are. So, usually when I see people comparing, I’m like, ‘Do you guys know?’

“There shouldn’t be any comparisons. What I believe that we should is that we should be more collaborative. Find our vibes and put them together to advance what Afrobeats is going to be in the future; for us to be the gatekeepers of our own sound. And I think that’s the power move.”
