“The music industry in Ghana is a disgrace” – Shatta Wale
Shatta Wale attributes her success to music
Sarkodie says Ghana’s music industry is not supportive enough
Unhealthy competition among Ghanaian musicians is killing the industry, says Bosom P-Yung
Self-proclaimed ‘Dancehall King’, Shatta Wale has described the Ghanaian music industry as a disgrace; one not worth celebrating.
The ‘On God’ hitmaker explained that the music industry in Ghana is not designed to facilitate the success of musicians and their craft. Although he is one of the personalities to have excelled in the music industry, Shatta Wale attributed his achievement as a musician to the internet and his many followers.
“The internet made me and I’m proud to say. Ghanaian music itself is a disgrace to the world… Nonsense talk,” Shatta Wale explained in a post on Twitter.
The musician called on his peers to learn from him as he is the only person in the music industry on the right path to success.
He said, “I’m not your normal musician for you to tell me things you think are right, all of you in this insane shitty industry are on the wrong path, I’m the only one on the right path.. Start to learn because your head is big enough for common sense.. Foolish boys on Twitter…” (sic)
The “Dancehall King” is not the only Ghanaian musician to speak ill of the music industry. In a recent interview on ‘Podcast and Chill with MACG’ in South Africa, Ghana’s most decorated rapper Sarkodie mentioned that compared to neighboring countries like Nigeria, the entertainment industry is not supportive enough .
On his part, rapper Bosom P-Yung said that the music industry is not growing because of the unhealthy competition that exists among Ghanaian musicians.
The ‘Ata Adwoa’ hitmaker is of the opinion that for the industry to grow, such competition should rather be with non-Ghanaian artists than within.
