Dancehall Artiste, Shatta Wale born Charles Nii Armah Mensah has blamed artistes like Sarkodie for government’s reluctance in supporting and taking the arts industry serious.
According to him, it is stupid for an artiste to think of releasing a diss song during this period that the government is faced with a challenge
To him, this is the period Ghanaian musicians should also support the government in its fight against Coronavirus and not fight among themselves.
He stated that government officials will continue to take the arts industry for granted because people who make up the industry do not think strategically.
“If you’ll release such a song for beef, at least not at this time when people are dying. So If the President goes on Twitter right now, he will be told that while the government is working towards fighting Coronavirus, the musicians are also fighting among themselves. The President won’t take the arts serious.”
