The CEO of 3Music Awards who recently hosted the Wildalands Festival, Sadiq Abudulia Abu has taken to the gram to call out Shatta Wale for failing to honor his part of the agreement after he was billed to perform at the Wildaland Festival at Shai Hills.
Sadiq took to popular social media platform, Facebook to make this known while reacting to Shatta Wale’s rant over how Nigerians have refused to reciprocate the love that has been shown to them in Ghana.
According to him, the Ghana Music Industry will continue to be stagnant in the neighboring countries if folks in the music industry do not change their wicked attitude.
He however called out Shatta Wale for being unprofessional as a dancehall music giant as he failed to show up after taking the agreed amount of money.
In his words, “Facts. If you like play 100% Ghanaian music and bill only Ghanaian talents (a major one didn’t show up after being fully paid recently, but make we take wanna refunds first, I will address it properly later) Many if not most Ghanaian talents will blame everybody else but themselves and their lack of proper team structures, for their lack of progress or stunted growth. If every proper industry person will speak, devoid of the emotional nationalism and highlight the often raw treatment, non-support (Ofcourse for them support your own is only when you support them alone) and the abuse we receive from some of them (the thing King Promise and e team take do me ehn, I doubt if I can ever overcome it) all their talk about market protection will only amount to selfish interests and nothing about enabling industry. Until they all begin to value everybody else in the chain, all of this emotional nationalism rants without any real and genuine intentions and strategies to enable industry won’t amount to anything. They know the truth and they know that which are gimmicks. Happy new year guys, hope we all strive to do better, value everybody in the value chain and enable each other. That’s how to grow and not be worried about the impressive activities of your neighbours.”
