President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) Bice Osei Kufuor known in showbiz as Obuor, has stated that the Music Industry will not die if Dancehall Artiste Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy are no more in the industry.
According to the Musicians president “the music industry can do without Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy because they are not the only musicians in Ghana.” He added that “there have been musicians before these two artistes who achieved more than them.”
Hiplife Artiste, Criss Waddle had chastised Obuor for not doing much to help the Musicians in the Charter House, Artiste feud.
In a tweet Criss Waddle said “Obuor will sit there with his big stomach as if he has swallowed all shatta wale lyrics from his Banana days and in all this bizzare happenings say nothing to calm down the situation or lift the spirits of the artist involved wo dier wo.”
But Obuor who believes the Music Industry can survive without the duo Dancehall Artistes in an interview with Daily Graphic stated that “Shatta Wale was banned for three years from the VGMA but the awards still went on and his ban did not affect the music industry in any way. The fact is, the music industry is bigger than just these two individuals.”
Both Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have been banned indefinitely by Charter House, organizer of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards following a brawl that occurred at this year’s event marring the success of the awards.
Meanwhile Sarkodie who was crowned Artiste of Decade at the this year’s VGMA award has called on Charter House to take caution on their hasty decision taken since the Artistes can also retaliate.
