Shatta Wale knocks Black Sherif, others calling for ban of Nigerian music in Ghana

Ghanaian dancehall star, Shatta Wale has criticised his colleagues, for advocating for a cessation of Nigerian music on Ghana’s airwaves.

It may be recalled that popular Ghanaian artistes, Black Sherif, Samini and Reggie Rockstone bemoaned how Nigerian songs dominate the radio and TV while domestic artistes barely get airplay.

The group had a press conference days ago where they urged Ghanaian DJs, TV presenters and Radio OAPs to stop playing foreign music in the country starting this December.

They insisted the airwaves should be dominated 100% by Ghanaian music in order to promote their culture and empower their artistes.

Reacting to the development, Shatta Wale stated that even if Ghanaian media implemented the local content policy, Nigerian music would still overshadow them.

He said the policy won’t have much effect in the streaming era as the government can’t force Ghanaians to stream Ghanaian music. He claimed it will take Ghana till 5050 to catch up with Nigeria.

Shatta Wale wrote; “The way Wizkid and Davido and Burna Boy love Ghana nu, you ppl wan play dem a song 20%? No problem. One song from them go make your woman wet all nite.

E go take you ppl roughly the year 5050 before you guys will get what Naija is getting. Your spirit of wanna be is very bad. Is it by force for Ghanaians to listen to your fav? They like Wizkid.

Your artiste loose guard he no make money quick. Now he say play Ghana music. U weh dj’s play your song saaaa weh u no give dem shishi. Shame on you all. Your artiste no get shi shi. Artiste poor, fans poor!!! Music too no deh fly.”
