ADIKORO – Women in Music Ghana | documentary

Director, Producer

African artists are increasingly enjoying international popularity. Whether it’s Wizkid or Burna Boy, sold-out tours or features with Western stars like Drake and Beyoncé: Pop from the continent has entered the global stage and will stay there. At least the men will. Because female acts obviously have a harder time.

Why this is so is the initial question of the documentary film project by Afropop expert and curator Pamela Owusu-Brenyah. The member of the Pop-Kultur program team travelled to Ghana to get to the bottom of the socio-economic conditions that block women’s access and visibility in the local and global Pop business.

In Twi, “ADIKORO” means something like “equal”, which is also the title of Owusu-Brenyah’s debut: The grievance documented in it is to be remedied and wants to encourage female artists to follow their dreams of a music career.
