CEO of 3Music Awards Slams Shatta Wale Over His Rant At Nigerians, Reveals How He Pulled A Fast One On Him
CEO of the very popular 3Music Awards, Baba Sadiq Abdulai Abu has slammed Shatta Wale over his attack on Nigerian entertainers over their lack of support despite the immense help they derive from their Ghanaian counterparts.
Sadiq revealed that while Shatta Wale is busily calling for support from his Nigerian counterparts, he’s not walking the talk here in Ghana as he took a chunk of money from him yet failed to appear at his Wildaland Festival.
In his words, “Facts. If you like play 100% Ghanaian music and bill only Ghanaian talents (a major one didn’t show up after being fully paid recently, but make we take wanna refunds first, I will address it properly later) Many if not most Ghanaian talents will blame everybody else but themselves and their lack of proper team structures, for their lack of progress or stunted growth.
If every proper industry person will speak, devoid of the emotional nationalism and highlight the often raw treatment, non-support (Of ofcourse for them support your own is only when you support them alone) and the abuse we receive from some of them (the thing King Promise and e team take do me ehn, I doubt if I can ever overcome it) all their talk about market protection will only amount to selfish interests and nothing about enabling industry.
Until they all begin to value everybody else in the chain, all of this emotional nationalism rants without any real and genuine intentions and strategies to enable industry won’t amount to anything.
They know the truth and they know that which are gimmicks. Happy new year guys, hope we all strive to do better, value everybody in the value chain and enable each other. That’s how to grow and not be worried about the impressive activities of your neighbours.”
