Ghanaian artiste, Shatta Wale, has been slammed by Nii Kwartei Titus Glover for being ignorant about the genre of music associated with Ghana.
The former New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Tema East expressed his disappointment with Shatta Wale during an interview on DayBreak Hitz on Hitz 103.9 FM.
On Wednesday, June 2, 2021, Wale addressed the nation during a 'State of the Industry' address. Amongst other issues, he suggested that Ghanaians work on a music genre that would be original to the country.
"I felt like he should have given a straightforward answer. We do pure highlife. That is what we are noted for," Glover told host Andy Dosty.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Wale has been slammed for being one of the most confused, inconsistent, and flippant artistes by Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, an entertainment analyst. He made this observation while speaking as a panelist on the United Showbiz programme on UTV.
On Thursday, June 3, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported that Wale had advocated for a policy of 90% Ghanaian music on the Ghanaian airwaves to help the growth of the Ghanaian music industry.
In other news, television presenter, Efia Odo, has slammed the Ghana Police Service for what she calls their aggressive intent to stop the #FixTheCountry demonstration.
In a post on Twitter, she wondered what the service is afraid of considering their consistent attempt to prevent them from exercising their right to protest.
Her comment comes after a warning by the Ghana Police Service to the public not to participate in any call for demonstration by the #FixTheCountry conveners.
