Head of Hitz FM and entertainment pundit, Mark Okraku Mantey has shared his opinion on CNN’s 10 top African artists compilation which sent social media buzzing this week.
The list strangely had no Ghanaian making an appearance with Nigerian presence heavily felt as the likes of Burna Boy, Wizkid, Mr Eazi, Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade were named in the top 10.
Sharing his opinion on the subject, Mark Okraku-Mantey said the list is bogus and urged Ghanaians to disregard it.
‘Forget that list, how did they compile that list; CNN didn’t tell us how they put together that list, what and what they considered before bringing out the list”.
Mark Okraku-Mantey revealed Ghanaians often keep mute when international award schemes nominate artists from Africa when they don’t cite their bases yet will unleash their venom on Vodafone Ghana Music Awards board members.
“When BET nominates someone, we do not probe and ask how they were nominated. When it comes to VGMA, people wouldn’t let us sleep the whole week”
