Popular Ghanaian Reggae and hip-life artist, Edem, has lashed out at the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), over the recent implementation of TV license scheme which will see some Ghanaians prosecuted if they fail to pay the new tax.
The TV license conversation has raised more than a few tempers, and it appears that the popular Ghanaian artiste, Edem, has joined the community of disgruntled citizens against the new government initiative.
Moreover, based on a social media message Edem shared on his official Twitter profile, he believes that GBC - the state-owned company that will collect licensing funds - is suffering from a case of misplaced priorities.
In Edem's message shared on Twitter, he took a 'clean' swipe at GBC and said if the state broadcaster can no longer stand the competition in the media industry, they ought to shut down.
Edem clearly expresses his opinion on the new TV license initiative by urging the state broadcaster not to "siphon money" from Ghanaians.
Touching on the sensitive issue of artists' royalties, Edem lashed out at GBC, saying that instead of it spearheading the payment of royalties, the state broadcaster rather wants to rip people off.
