Ghanaian musician turned politician, Kwame Asare-Obeng, affectionately called A Plus, has joined the train of debaters arguing about a comment made by Gabby Otchere-Darko on the poor standards of local movies.

A Plus, has, in an Instagram post, urged Gabby to lobby politicians, particularly the incumbent government to pay the deserved royalties to musicians anytime they use their songs for campaign rallies.

“Somebody should tell Gabby Otchere Darko that the only way creative arts will be part of Ghana beyond aid is when government seeks permission from copyright owners like the owner of this song [3y3 me s3 day3so – Patience Nyarko] and pay her before using it to promote a political agenda,” he wrote in his post.

“You don’t support creative arts in any way yet you wonder why it’s below your expectation. You just take people’s songs and use them. If government is doing this why won’t individuals do same?,” a portion of his post on Instagram stated.

He added that he doesn’t understand why Gabby wants quality from local industry when no government including the Akufo-Addo led administration is uplifting them.

You don't support creative arts in any way yet you wonder why it's below your expectation. You just take people's song and use it. If government is doing this why won't individuals do same? They will go and find her and give her some two thousand to say "Kwame A Plus is lying. They paid me before." hahahahahahahahahahaha. Gospel artist hoping to go to heaven can't lie. @kafuidanku come and see

Gossip Mama is one of the dumbest writers you will ever meet. What she lacks for in brains she makes for in.....As a female with some lil sense in her mind, she wants to give it out to the celebs lacking it. If you dont find her glued to the Tv, check her out by the computer bashing some celebrity with words.. I am not a journalist nor do I aspire to be one. I am a blogger who saw the potential of this site and joined the bloggers. And yes, I am biased. I only report on artists/celebrities that I like or find interesting.....
