Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghanaian writer and entertainment critic, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo has reacted to Wiyaala’s warning to him and others not to discuss her on any show.
The Ghanaian singer became furious after Arnold said in a discussion on GhanaWeb TV’s ‘Bloggers Forum’ that she [Wiyaala] and her handler’s attention has been on the international market and not the Ghanaian market.
His comment was on music producer, JMJ’s assertion that the female side of the Ghanaian music scene is virtually dead following the inactiveness of Kaakie, MzVee and the late Ebony Reigns—and also gave a shout out to Wiyaala for her vibrancy.
Following the show, the Lioness of Africa warned Arnold and other bloggers or entertainment pundits to stop mentioning her name in their discussions in a video she posted on Instagram.
Following her outburst, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, shared a video of the discussion on his Facebook wall and asked people and the singer not to be quick to judge.
He added that he was also shocked by the attitude of some of his colleagues after the incident.
“DON’T BE QUICK TO JUDGE! Ghana fuo ankasa, we are too quick to judge. Somebody is mistakenly called a thief, before he can utter any explanation to prove otherwise, he would have been lynched already.
“It is no wonder we can lynch an innocent 90-year old for nothing.
In all these, my biggest disappointment, as always stems from these so-called colleagues and friends who are quick to share, project and shout your ‘failings’. You can do better!”
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghana-international musician Wiyaala, for the first time, heavily descended on those she says try to look down on her.
Wiyaala warned that those people should keep her name out of their mouths and discussions anytime they meet.
She boldly mentioned music producer JMJ, and media personality Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, as those troubling her.
According to Wiyaala, these people mention her during entertainment reviews and say "shoutout to Wiyaala but she does not really count".
