Ghanaian poet and literary coach, Philip Dua-Oyinka, known in showbiz circles as Nana Asaase, has called on the general public to pay attention to the not-so-popular arts like poetry.
He told Citi News’ Kwame Dadzie in an interview that poetry and other ‘low-brow’ art forms have suffered financial difficulties for long.
According to him, they all have the ability to reach the masses so companies, event organizers and financial institutions should not hesitate to invest in their crafts.
Speaking about the support he had for his ‘Mental Pictures V’ which was held at the Accra City Hotel on Friday, September 17, 2021, he said the only financial assistance he had was from the National Folklore Board.
Nana further noted that if the recherché art forms are given more push just like the beauty pageants, it will do the arts industry a lot of good.
