Music Industry Bigger Than Shatta Wale & Stonebwoy – Obour
President of Musicians Union of Ghana(MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour has stated that, the music industry can survive without Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Speaking to Daily Graphic after the two artistes were banned indefinitely from the VGMA on May 8, he made these statements.
According to him, the exclusion of these two artistes won’t affect the music industry in any way.
“The music industry can do without Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy because they are not the only musicians in Ghana. There have been musicians before these two artistes who achieved more than them.
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,” he said.
He however acknowledged the fact the the two had a lot of influence.
Obour also said that, without them, the music industry would still achieve whatever purpose it wanted to achieve.
“Sarkodie, M.anifest, Samini and a good number of musicians are doing great and without them, the music industry will still do well,” he noted.
He explained that the unfortunate incident that took place on the night of the awards was the highest disgrace to the entire nation and the music industry.
“We should bow our heads in shame, especially Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy. With all the dignitaries present, these two artistes’ behaviour was very bad and I support the decision to ban them,” he said.
In a report contained by Graphiconline.com.gh, Obour said hopes the two artistes learn from what happened and do things differently.
