  • Limited Infrastructure: One of the key reasons for the low turnout of fans at musical concerts in the Upper East Region is the limited infrastructure available for hosting such events. Unlike the major cities and other regions in Ghana, the Upper East Region lacks state-of-the-art concert venues with modern facilities and adequate seating capacity. The absence of suitable concert venues hampers the ability of artistes to organize large-scale events that can accommodate a significant number of fans.
  • Economic Constraints: The economic conditions in the Upper East Region play a significant role in the low turnout of fans at musical concerts. The region is predominantly agrarian, with limited economic opportunities. Many residents face financial constraints that make it difficult for them to allocate funds for entertainment purposes, including attending concerts. The low purchasing power of the population results in a smaller potential audience for artistes, impacting the viability of staging bigger concerts.
  • Limited Promotion and Marketing: Compared to their counterparts from other regions, artistes in the Upper East Region often face challenges in promoting and marketing their concerts effectively. The region’s limited media outlets, both traditional and digital, make it challenging for artists to reach a wider audience.

Inadequate publicity and marketing efforts hinder the ability of artistes to create buzz and generate excitement around their concerts, ultimately leading to lower turnout.

  • Lack of Government Support: The absence of substantial government support is another factor contributing to the inability of artistes in the Upper East Region to stage bigger concerts. Unlike regions with more robust cultural and artistic support systems, the Upper East Region receives limited attention and funding for the development of its music industry. Insufficient financial backing, lack of infrastructure development, and limited opportunities for capacity building and talent promotion hinder the growth of the music scene and discourage artistes from organizing larger concerts.
  • The Pull Him Down Syndrome (PhD): It’s observed among artists and event organizers in the Upper East Region that there is this sinister called Pull Him Down Syndrome (PhD). It presents a significant obstacle in their ability to organize large-scale concerts compared to their counterparts in other regions. This syndrome manifests when artists who are not scheduled to perform at an event actively discourage their fans from attending, and they hope for a low turnout. This behavior stems from a desire to criticize their fellow artist by attributing the low attendance to their absence from the lineup.

  • Furthermore, another contributing factor to the limited success of organizing big concerts in the Upper East Region is the absence of a well-structured and dedicated fan base for local artists. Additionally, there is a scarcity of concert-goers in the region. These factors combined further hinder the staging of larger concerts in the area.

It is crucial to invest in infrastructure development, foster economic growth, enhance promotion and marketing strategies, and seek increased government support for the region’s music industry. By overcoming these challenges, artistes in the Upper East Region can unlock their true potential and stage bigger concerts that attract larger audiences.
