Ghana’s dancehall giants Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have set the ball rolling for twitter trends after they launched attacks on Charterhouse for trying to solicit the help of the media to in a way kill their careers.
After suggestions were made that the indefinite ban on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy should be lifted after they caused commotion during last year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), CEO of Charterhouse Theresah Ayoada said the fate of the two will be determined by a new board which is yet to be constituted.
She made these comments during a press engagement in Accra, whilst encouraging the media to rather focus on other 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 a lots of young people who need the opportunity so let’s move on.”
However, Shatta Wale took to Facebook live to attack Charterhouse and the VGMAs board over their position on Wednesday.
“The Board members, all of you are poor people. What I possess, none of you has, I can pay all of you every month,” he fired. “You don’t have anything. Most of them are disappointed musicians. You don’t know God… Don’t try me. This should be your first and last. Don’t try me. You can try this on Stonebwoy but not me.”
The following day, Stonebwoy also told Charterhouse his mind in a tweet.
