Blogging Is A Serious Business Thus Stakeholders Should Treat The Profession As Such – Blogger OdarteyGH
Gone are the days when traditional media was the go-to platform for stakeholders in the entertainment industry. Now, the narrative has changed as bloggers are now at the helm of affairs when it comes to publicity and content creation.
Renowned Ghanaian blogger, OdarteyGH was the guest on the Black Magic show on Pluck Radio hosted by Eugene Osei, Smokey and Ohemaa Ekua. The topic for discussion for the day was “blogging and the role of bloggers in the entertainment industry.”
The host of the show Eugene Osei asked blogger OdarteyGH how serious the blogging profession and is and if it paying off. According to the OdarteyGH, ” Blogging is serious business as a matter of fact it has come to stay and it is the go-to media platform for Ghanaians and the world at large now. This shows how blogging has evolved and now a serious business where individuals earn a living out of it”
OdarteyGH, however, lamented on how some stakeholders treat bloggers as if they are uneducated and nobody in the industry. Meanwhile, they know the worth of bloggers if they want their content to go viral.
“Stakeholders must respect the bloggers and the profession, bloggers play a huge role in projecting the industry hence what is due as must be given and not treated as beggars or individuals chasing after money”
He however called on colleague bloggers to put value on their brands since that will go a long way to bring some respect to the blogging profession.

EP REVIEW: BAD ARRANGEMENT BY JETEY
Jetey’s new 6-track ‘’Bad Arrangement’’ EP adorns Africa’s biggest and most successful genre, as he dives into the intricacies of being in a relationship that has lost its spark, be it for business or pleasure.
‘’Bad Arrangement’’ offers a tender ride on the ever resonant Afrobeat express with no redundancies, nor slack; start to finish and we must admit, we‘re sold!
‘’Bad Arrangement’’ is available on all digital streaming platforms globally here.
The crooner pulls this off with a team of six producers; KeezyOnTheBeat, BabaWvd, SkillisBeatz, Joshua Nkansah, UglyxToughThing and MintBeatz, but no features whatsoever, which may be a bummer to some, but understandable for a project this concise.
2020 left a lot to be desired and like everyone else, Jetey had all the time in the world to do some soul-searching of his own: the outcome being ‘’Bad Arrangement’’; a phoenix which arose from the ashes of the said year’s bad arrangements. In we go!
‘Somebody’ gets the show started with a warmth that’s embracing of its emotive tone. Jetey questions if there’s really someone for everyone, but feels otherwise because his ‘’somebody’’ is seemingly no one.
‘Taya’ swoops in next, rocking an upbeat tempo that guides listeners into its rather heart-wrenching tale of deceit and false assurances, which Jetey has unapologetically had enough of by the way; ‘’I taya you’’, he sings.
Then there’s ‘Lova’, a sweet offering propped up by vocals so divine, cloud nine is a sure destination. It’s all smooth-talk from Jetey, who slithers his way into his female interests’ feminine mould, like Fela Kuti’s would with Afrobeat and who could blame him? He’s got that Afrobeat love.
‘Circles’ is the next of kin. Its moody air hinges on the all too familiar conundrum of wanting somebody who’s commitment is just not there, setting the pace for next in line, ‘Baa Na’.
Jetey engaged in a bad business, a fact he has to come to terms with. But that’s okay, ungratefulness isn’t his emotional yardstick. His love and respect remain absolute all day, everyday.
‘Healing’, the EP’s highlighting sound creeps in to end it all on a good foot. Jetey bows out with the fanciest of vocals and weightiest of messages which culminate in an ambience memorable at best.
Jetey’s ‘’Bad Arrangement’’ may be a year late, but nevertheless, right on time. His emotional turmoils bounce off the very formidable instrumentals on offer, lunging straight at your attention and affection centers with poignant lyrics sure to serve as the perfect companion.
