Renowned Ghanaian rapper Captain Planet of the ‘hanging’ 4X4 Group has stated categorically that he no longer trusts the media in Ghana.
According to the ‘Obi Agyi Obi Girl’ hitmaker, the media in Ghana always twists stories to get trending news and drive traffic.
Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM he noted that he has had enough experience with media people and he’s been trying to understand the way operate. He added that the media can go as far as creating their own news.
According to the ‘Akpeteshie’ singer, most reports by the media on his colleague and partner Coded are all false after performing his checks on the actual conversation that led to such reports by various media portals which sometimes makes him doubt the Ghanaian media.
“A media person can create their own news just to fuel that 24-hour cycle naturally in order to make a story or something worth reading. The truth has to be stretch to the people. The media people know the truth but they will not say it just because they want it stretch so that they can have a lot of audiences to patronise them, that’s how the media works. I’m not a media personnel, maybe I’m watching too much CNN so I’m beginning to have some ideas about how the media works,” Captain Planet .
