Socrate Safo Hits Back At NDC’s Sadiq Abdulai For Scoring Political Points With King Promise’s Spotify Album Record

Ghanaian filmmaker and a staunch member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Socrate Safo has replied NDC’s Sadiq Abdulai Abu after he countered his assertion that the sale of CDs still has a bigger market than digital stores.

In an earlier report Zionfelix.net made, Sadiq asked Socrate whether any Ghanaian musician has been able to sell 24 million copies of CDs. His post came after King Promise’s ‘As Promised’ album had 24 million streams on Spotify

Following his post, Socrate Safo has responded and still defended that CDs has a market which can help the artistes.

He clarified that he is not against streaming on digital platforms—but musicians in the country can still make some earnings through the sale of CDs.

Socrate made his point known by commenting on a post made by artiste manager, Kwasi Ernest who was in favour of his assertion.

He replied: “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. Kwasi, I told you they don’t understand the whole issue. And those who understand too a deliberately shifting the point, and ridicule as a strategy. It’s worked for them so far. It’s all about Turf War.

“For the records, as you point out, I have never said streaming is evil or a crime. No, I am saying there is still some small market left for CD sales. That small market is big enough to sustain a musician whilst waiting for the big money from streaming. What we need is promotion for CD sales. We also need to fix the challenge with distribution system. Does this make sense to somebody?”
