Rapper Guru has criticised the manifestos put forth by the various presidential nominees, saying it does not talk about grooming up and coming musicians.

The creative arts industry section of the manifestos has come under scrutiny from members of the industry.

Contributing his quota to the scrutiny of the manifestos on Accra-based Hitz FM, Guru, called Nana Yaw Adjei Yeboah in private life, said the manifestos should have addressed ways to help young musicians to find market.

He said: “They can’t tackle everything about Ghana within a particular time given to them. There should be a structure like grooming and helping up and coming artiste or helping already made artiste trying to find their way into the world market.

"So far, they’ve not fused anything about the whole grooming thing into their policies. I won’t speak for only myself but will leave it for them because they know what they want and what they think will help Ghana."

According to him, Ghanaian politicians believe the entertainment industry cannot contribute to the growth o the country.

"If they think entertainment won’t contribute anything to the growth of the country then its up to them," he said.

He further advised his colleagues to desist from endorsing politicians.

"Its an advice to us the musicians, if we are to endorse any of the political parties it should not be for our pockets but for the people.

"If these politicians are not putting anything in place that will help the artiste enhance the talent we have in Ghana then I think we should critically look at it.

"Coming out with a manifesto without measures to help the up and coming artiste then I think we have a big problem. I hope they have something they don’t want to disclose to the people” he said.
