Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Asem and Reggie Rockstone have been intertwined in a battle for supremacy with digs/punchlines aimed amongst themselves. And even though some of the aforementioned seem to have formed WWE-esque tag teams with the sole aim of counting their “opponents” out, it seems as though there’s a loss of focus on who the actual enemy is.
Of course, musical or lyrical beefs help in spicing up entertainment locally but are our artistes taking it too far? Are they forgetting that they have a global market to compete with?
Shatta Wale’s one who has been pushing for unity on our Ghanaian musical front although his rallying cry for unity seems to go contrary to his actions.
Nonetheless, he has aimed a huge dig at musicians in Ghana citing that many of them do not know the job they are pursuing hence the government can’t take them seriously.
This comes in the wake of Kenya’s President, Uhuru Kenyatta’s directive to the Ministry of Sports, culture and heritage that musicians, artistes and actors be paid Ksh. 100 million in order that they keep their citizens entertained during this period of the corona virus crisis.
Shatta Wale tasked musicians in Ghana to change their ways so that government takes them seriously.
