NEWS: Ghanaian Music Producer and DJ Juls Partner With TuneCore To Empower Rising Songwriters In Ghana

TuneCore and Juls Partner to Empower Rising Songwriters in Ghana. 

In a move to provide support for the creativity and long-term success of independent musicians in Ghana, TuneCore, the leading development partner for self-releasing artists, partnered with award-winning producer Julian Nicco-Annan—popularly known as Juls—for a songwriting camp in Kokrobite, Accra, Ghana.

The five-day camp, which took place from April 17th through 21st, was designed to foster creativity and collaboration amongst self-releasing artists and provide rising stars with access to Juls’ music industry experience, expertise, and advice. The goal was to help songwriters and producers hone their talents while also educating them about the music business.

Juls, known for his work with Burna Boy, Wizkid, and other notable artists, commented on the event, saying, “This writing camp was put together by me bringing Ghanaian musicians together to create soundscapes centered around traditional highlife and hiplife music. The camp was held in Kokrobite on the beach. A lot of great music was made in an aesthetically pleasing environment, refreshing for fresh ideas from all artists and musicians.”

Participants had the opportunity to attend workshops and masterclasses on songwriting and performance and collaborate on original music. Notable names in the industry like Akan, Twitch4eva, Kofi Mole, Cina Soul, Baaba J, Dayoonthetrack, Worlasi, West Ebusua Band, the Local Dimension Band, Quamina MP, and more were present at the camp and shared their expertise with attendees to help guide their artistic development.

This isn't the first time that TuneCore and Juls have partnered to help uplift rising African artists. In 2022, they collaborated for the Process Ghana Workshop, an educational workshop for music producers with equipment provided by Native Instruments, a leading manufacturer of software and hardware for computer-based audio production and DJing.

Chioma Onuchukwu, Head of TuneCore, East and West Africa, spoke about TuneCore's mission and the importance of events like the songwriting camp in Kokrobite, saying, “One of TuneCore’s core missions is to support the creativity and long-term success of independent Ghanaian musicians by providing both education surrounding the music business and practical workshops. We believe that music can bring people together, and we hope this event inspires participants to connect with others who share their passion and collaborate on new music.”

In a country with a rich musical heritage, events like the TuneCore and Juls songwriting camp provide a much-needed opportunity for rising stars to hone their craft, collaborate with other artists, and learn about the music business. By empowering independent artists in Ghana, TuneCore and Juls are helping to shape the future of music in Africa and beyond.
