Stonebwoy, award winning dancehall artiste, has said that Ghanaians do not support their own creative minds. His comments come on the back of a social media war between Ghana’s Shatta Wale and fans of Nigerian musician, Wizkid.
Stonebwoy at a press briefing on Thursday to launch his 24-track album christened, “Epistles of Mama” vehemently asserted that, it is sad how the Ghanaian media has failed in projecting Ghanaian musicians and actors.
“One of the most trending tweets on twitter as I was coming here is the fact that Wizkid has won an international award over Jay Z and Beyonce at the moguls and the way the Nigerian media is carrying it is amazing, even the President of Nigeria is tweeting about it,” he said.
Stonebwoy said Samini was the first African artist to win a mogul award in Africa in 2006 but the Ghanaian media with their ‘much ado about nothing attitude’ did not make news out of it.
According to him, he is saddened to have gotten the lowest likes on his Instagram post when he posted about his Grammy nomination with Morgan Heritage.
“Is it the English we do not understand or what?” he quizzed.
Reacting to critics who think he bribed his way into the Grammy nomination, he said, “If anyone thinks it’s that easy to get nominated for a Grammy, then they should get themselves in there,” he said.
According to Stonebwoy, he is the first African musician to have featured five International artistes on one album yet the media is silent on that.
