Ghanaian musician Barima Sydney has identified leadership as a major cause of split of music groups.
The musician of Nananom fame told host of GH Entertainment Togo Borga that, when a group lacks strong leadership and direction, the group will not survive.
According to him, every music group irrespective of how good they are should have strong leadership that will shape their craft, career and help them succeed.

To him, it is not easy to generate resources to promote music.

Nananom group was formed by Sidney, he was an original member of Nananom which also included Omanhene Pozoh, and Jyoti Chandler (Ohemaa – Queen mother).
Their debut album, “Nana Kasa” was a massive hit and after Pozoh left the group, they released “Nana-nono” which also did well.
Some of their songs were Wokyere wo ho, Ewuradwoa, Ofie ne fie, Wo ne hwan, Kwame Nkrumah hye Ghana, Everything is gonna be right, Washeda anaa, Agoo, and many more. They also featured on Agoro on Rockstone’s Makaa maka album (1997).
