CNN has released a list of 10 top music stars in Africa with no Ghanaian mentioned.
The list– from highest to lowest- comprises Burna Boy, Angelique Kidjo, Diamond Platinumz, Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Mr Eazi, Sho Madjozi, Busiswa Gqulu and Mwila Musonda with no Ghanaian artiste making the final 10.
Nigerians have complained about the fact that CNN omitted Davido from the list because he had bridged the gap over the years with regards to Afrobeats music.
Other African countries also complained about big stars they had in their country that were worth the list.
Some Ghanaians equally have issues with the list because the likes of Sarkodie, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were not mentioned.
But Shatta Wale, reacting to the list, blamed Ghana’s music industry as a whole for the no show in the list.
According to him, stakeholders and gatekeepers in the industry care about nothing than “talking about people’s lives but not our professional lives (music).
“Now Ghana music industry you see how stupid you people are? All you guys care about is people personal lives and not our professional lives (music) ..Now your artiste you paint to people no deh here , me too anode there..You see how you fool ..congrats to these arts ..You just made me proud and me alone I say !!! Any station that discuss this should bow their ugly faces in shame,” he posted on Facebook.
