It’s not fair to give one artiste the ‘Artiste of the decade’ award -EL

Ghanaian Afrobeat musician and producer, Elom Adablah better known by the stage name EL has expressed that the ‘Artiste of the Decade’ award should be given to two musicians.

According to the ‘Obuu Mo’ hitmaker, it wouldn’t be appropriate to give the ward to one artiste because they have all played vital roles in the growth of the music industry.

“Everyone deserves it in their own right. I don’t think it’s appropriate or even fair to give one artiste an ‘Artiste of the Decade’ because we’ve had different artistes mould the whole music industry for the past 10 years. They should give it to 2 Artistes in that category”, EL stated.
