And now Dancehall artiste MzVee is sharing her thoughts on the issues raised.
In an exclusive interview with the Graphic Showbiz, MzVee, who was nominated in the 2016 edition of the BET awards, said it was time for the music industry to admit that it needed help.
“Most often, we talk and act like we can do things on our own but that is not the truth, we all need help at some point in our lives and I believe our music industry is not different. We first have to admit we need help, put down the kind of help we need and we move from there.
“As for the talent we have it, we have what it takes. There are people in the industry doing great things and every time new people come up who are doing amazingly well but because we do not know what we need to get to that level, we are always left out.”
Outlining some of the areas that need to be helped, MzVee said the kind of works artistes churn out should be able to speak for them.
“Even though an album is important to an artiste, it is not all that one needs to get the appeal; albums tell stories, it is just one of those things.
