A member of the new breed of artists has taken aim at the old generation, claiming their greed is what has destroyed the industry for the young ones.

Sweenity, who was formerly of Criss Waddle’s AMG Business, says stars like Tinny, Kontihene, Praye, Joe Frazier and others did not sign younger talent to nurture them but instead are still keen on taking over the spotlight.

Sweenity made his bold remarks in an interview with Kasapa Fm earlier today (Friday).

“The industry is really declining and mostly we blame VGMA scheme for this situation but the reality is that most of our old artistes are greedy especially Tinny, Kontihene, Praye, Joe Frazier and others,” he said.

“In Ghana, when new artistes are making headway, veteran artistes dislike it and they try to sabotage you. There are so many artistes who envy the likes of Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, EL and other musicians because when they were making the hit songs those young artistes (Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, EL etc.) were nowhere to be found.

“If by the grace of God all these greedy and envious (Tinny, Kontihene, Praye, Joe Frazier) artistes are no more and we now have new good artistes but they still want to comeback into the music scene again. For me I’ve not seen any past ruler whose still want to come back to rule again, it’s impossible. For Tinny, Kontihene, Praye, Joe Frazier and others, I plead with them to stop doing music,” he emphatically added.
