After years of being at each other’s throats constantly, the two now seem intent on putting everything behind them.
The press conference is to announce a unity concert between the two, which presumably would once and for all end their feuds.
However, Founding Editor of GhanaCelebrities.Com, Chris-Vinent Agyapong Febiri, has called the concert an illegitimate venture, especially if fans are going to be charged to attend.
According to Chris, in law one cannot make money from an illegitimate venture and therefore Shatta and Stonebwoy cannot break the law and then benefit from it in the form of a concert.
Chris, therefore, proposed that the two should have a joint Makola sweeping concert or a joint Achimota forest weeding concert rather than a unity concert.
Chris wrote on Facebook:
“There is a basic principle of natural justice—a person must not be allowed to benefit legitimately from an illegitimate enterprise.
In other jurisdictions, this has become, Ex turpi causa non oritur actio (Latin “from a dishonorable cause an action does not arise”)
You cannot rape someone, and then later write a book about this to make money. You cannot break the laws of Ghana, and then later stage a concert of peace on the back of the law you broke, to make money from so called fans.
If it’s not free, no reasonable person should attend—allow the deluded unemployed fans to manage to find money to go and pay.
Why don’t we have Shatta Wale and Stonebowy Unity sweeping of Makola Marker or Unity Weeding of Achimota by just the two of them?”
