Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, the Inspector General of the Ghana Police Service, has announced that the newly launched television station of the Ghana Police Service will only air Ghanaian songs that meet their standards.
The platform will primarily be used to promote entertainment and arts, requiring artists to fulfil specific quality criteria to earn promotion.
Dr. Dampare shared this information during a discussion with selected musicians and business leaders on police television. He emphasized that songs that do not meet the established standards will not be played on the platform.
Qualified artists, however, will benefit from having their music videos aired and their events promoted on the platform without any cost.
The Inspector General stated, “We would give them this platform to air all their albums and when they are doing any programme and they want, we would advertise for them for free. So, we advertise for you and then you bring your music videos for us to play for you. That is what we are going to do.”
While the specific standards were not mentioned, Dr. Dampare advised artists to focus on producing good tunes for their fan base. The new television station aims to provide a platform for Ghanaian artists to showcase their music and promote their work.
