Isaiah Kwadwo Ampong, popularly known as Great Ampong, one of Ghana’s most popular SDA gospel artists, has stated that the advent of hard drives fuelled piracy, which resulted in the early death of musicians’ careers.

He said that artists are not reaping the benefits of their labors because pirates are exploiting technology to rob them of their assets.

“Whoever created pen drives and hard drives did a great injustice to some of us since it was the catalyst for the demise of CDs.” When I release songs in Kantamanto, there are always a lot of copies available, and someone will come from Takoradi to buy them. Someone will also go to him to get extra copies. There were moments when people stood in line for hours to get my CDs, with one guy requesting over 10,000 copies.

“Today’s technology has made this tough, and no businessperson wants to invest in music once more.” Because making music is no longer profitable, Bandex has turned to bake. If I give you my record now to listen to, the song will be everywhere by the time we finish this interview, and no one will need to buy the CD,” he bemoaned.
