The President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kuffour, popularly known as Obour, has stated that the music industry can do without Dancehall artistes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Obour was speaking to the Daily Graphic after the two artistes were banned indefinitely from the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) by the scheme’s board following a brawl between their teams at the 20th edition of the awards on Saturday, May 18.
The ban was announced on Thursday, May 23, at a press conference at the Alisa Hotel in Accra.
According to Obour, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy not being included in the VGMA would not affect the music industry in any way.
“The music industry can do without Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy because they are not the only musicians in Ghana. There have been musicians before these two artistes who achieved more than them.
