Dancehall musician, Stonebwoy, has launched fresh attacks on Charterhouse Ghana with a claim that the organisation doesn’t care about Ghana’s music industry.
According to him, he is disappointed in the Charterhouse Chief Executive Officer(CEO), Mrs Theresa Ayoade, who asked the media to rise above Shatta Wale and himself following their Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) ban.
In a tweet, he said, “may I conclude that Charterhouse does not have the interest of Ghanaian musicians and Ghana music at heart? With all due respect Mrs Theresa, I’m disappointed!”
He added that, “calling on Ghana media to help you quench our careeers is a very low blow,” Stonebwoy registered.
Mrs Ayoade’s statement “let us rise above them” – referring to Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy – did not also sit well with fans of the artistes.
“Can you as the media help the industry rise above these two? Let’s rise above these two and let the industry breathe and move on. Sarkodie won artiste of the decade and nobody even talked about it.
“The industry is bigger than these two artistes and that is what I want you to go back with. There are lots of young people who need the opportunity so let’s move on,” she said at a press conference.
Entertainment pundit, George Quaye, has meanwhile jumped to the defense of the Charterhouse CEO, saying she has been misinterpreted.
