DADDY MAG presents: ADIKORO: African pop and women’s visibility in the music industry – Film screening followed by a Q+A
Whether its Wizkid or Burna Boy, sold-out tours or features with stars like Drake and Beyoncé: pop from the continent has entered the global stage and will stay there. While male Afrobeats artists are increasingly gaining attention globally, female acts have a harder time. In her debut film ADIKORO, which means “equal” in Twi, Afropop expert and curator Pamela Owusu-Brenyah explores why that’s the case. The documentary was mainly shot in Ghana and looks at the socio-economic conditions that block women’s access and visibility in the local and global music business while also encouraging female artists to follow their dreams of a music career.
