Ghanaian dancehall artist Charles Nii Armah otherwise known as Shatta Wale has in a post on Facebook responded to a recent press release by the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGHA) signed by the union’s president, Bice Osei Kuffour aka Obour.
Yesterday, the union released a s statement calling on musicians to refrain from the incessant use of profane lyrics and songs since they go a long way to affect society especially the young ones.
In a sharp response, Shatta Wale who recently released a new song that sounds derogatory to the feminine gender advised the union to rather focus on educating its members on the business aspect of music than to call for what goes into the content created by musicians.
According to him, what the industry is witnessing today is a revolution.
Read his post:
“We have seen musicians come and go down. All because they don’t speak out for their rights.This so called industry has made musicians so poor till now that musicians cant even make ends meet.Its a total disgrace to hear MUSIGHA come out to think banning of profane songs can change our industry but don’t think of educating musicians to see this career as a business venture which most musicians need more than anything. Obuor and you team sit up cuz all what you see these days is called the “REVOLUTION”…”
