Controversial Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has aired his views concerning the appointment of a Deputy Minister of the Creative Arts Industry.
On YFM’s ‘Y Leaderboard Series’ hosted by Rev. Erskine, the ‘Freedom’ singer said, “If our leaders are listening to me, I think it [Ministry of Creative Arts,Tourism and Culture] is something that they need to dissolve. We are in the technology world now. Someone like Mark Okraku Mantey can’t be there. Our leaders need to know. I am not saying it because I want to spoil his job. His job was a producer who became a Programmes Director at wherever he is but people like that don’t have vision.
Up till now, I haven’t seen his house. He cannot encourage me. Up to now, I have not seen certain things in the industry that has pushed me. We are talking about creative arts here. But ask yourself how many artistes have gotten their royalties in the industry. In this music industry that we are in, Amakye Dede is still complaining.”
In Shatta Wale’s opinion, Okraku Mante is far from fit for the position of Deputy Minister of the Creative Arts Industry.
