Sarkodie has now become the mouthpiece of all artists in Ghana, having taken to the forefront to help fight the bans imposed on Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale by the board of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Quiet and reserved Sarkodie has become an outspoken advocate for his fellow musicians.
In a series of tweets for the past couple of days, Sark has placed part of the blame for the VGMA fracas at the feet of Charterhouse and said banning Stone and Shatta is not the way to solve the issue.
He has also called for more sponsors to help the VGMAs so they can realize their vision for the show and not have to sell tickets to the general public to survive.
His comments have drawn praise from several colleagues and other industry names.
On twitter, Ghanaians are also wading into the issue and mostly on the side of the musicians.
Twitter user going by the name M.anifest (@ghanaman__) has jumped into the issue and has a message for Charterhouse.
According to him, Sarkodie is making too much sense and Charterhouse should probably ban him for no reason as well.
In his sarcastic comments, he’s implying if Sark is banned then Ghanaian musicians would have no mouthpiece to make their case for them and Charterhouse can rest in peace.
He ended his post with the #returnourmoney , which George Quaye has assured is never going to happen.
Can u please ban Sarkodie too for no reason?So that de MUSIC INDUSTRY will be toothless forever…
