Out-spoken actress Lydia Forson has thrown her support behind Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie over the unprofessionalism of some media persons.
During the weekend, rapper Sarkodie clashed with DJ Slime over his comment on how some media persons criticize artists in Ghana.
“It is easy for somebody to sit on the radio and say Shatta Wale hasn’t done this, and Sarkodie hasn’t done that. I’ve not said we the artists don’t have work to do. But If you’ve been on the radio in Ghana for close to 20 years and have not moved on to Choice or BBC, I don’t think you have the moral right to talk about artists in Ghana who have not gone International.
“It was Komla Dumor who made me get my first BBC Interview because he’s Ghanaian he gave me the opportunity. Abrantie made me play indigo because he’s Ghanaian and has access so he put me on. So the whole ecosystem is you people should move not only artistes,” he said in an interview.
Throwing her weight behind the rapper, Lydia Forson urged the media to mind how they criticize others not only artists because a person cannot be stagnant in life and advise another person to move.
“You can’t be marching at the same spot and asking the person next to you why they haven’t moved. I think Sark just meant the media should hold themselves to the same standard they hold artists to. I mean it doesn’t have to be BBC or CNN, but you need to equally grow…”
