Ghana’s dancehall fraternity has in the past years experienced the best of these two, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale – with a bad blood existing between the two in the last four years.
The bragging right has never been won by one and what separates these two is the fierce rivalry with awards, personal achievements and their lyrical differences – but united only by their genre of music, dancehall.
Stakeholders of the entertainment industry has called on ‘cease fire’ over the past years for peace to prevail between these two. At a point in time we thought Nana Appiah Mensah could do the magic after signing both, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale onto the same label, but it failed.
Renowned member and head of the pressure group, Occupy Ghana, Casely Hayford has written to the Council of State to resolve the brawl between the Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Mr Hayford who was speaking on The Big Issue revealed he wrote a letter to the Council State with the motive of helping secure the fate of the Ghanaian entertainment industry which if care is not taken could be ruined by these Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
They have to really have to get into it because if we are not careful, the two will ruin the whole entertainment industry and the industry a big money earner.
I have written to the (Previous) Council of State on two issues and said that they had to deal with the GYEEDA issue and they should get the president to set up a better commission and insist on CHRAJ doing its work. They didn’t mind me and nothing was said.
So last week, I’ve written to the Council of State on a very sensitive matter which I insist they have to look into. They have to sit down and mediate between this issue going on between Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
They have to really get into it because if we are not careful, the two will ruin the whole entertainment industry and the industry a big money earner”, he said.
Stonebwoy in a recent interview got angry over some comments that Shatta Wale made about him and how he accused him of killing his mother, which in recent reports Shatta has debunked ever accusing Stonebwoy of killing his mother.
