Legendary rapper, Sarkodie has taken to his Facebook account to offer some words of advice to Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy after the VGMA brouhaha.
It would be recalled that this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards turned into a nightmare after Stonebwoy pulled out a gun to defend himself due to Shatta Wale and his militants storming the stage as he was receiving his Award.
The unfortunate Incident happened after Stonebwoy was announced as the ‘Reggae/Dancehall Artist of the Year’.
Before Stonebwoy could take the microphone to give his acceptance speech, Shatta Wale and his SM militants were already on the stage aggressively wrestling their way through towards Stonebwoy.
Reacting to this Sarkodie wrote on Facebook;
“There’s is a bigger picture out there for Us ( musicians ) to look at … Ghana is doing well on the international scene and we need to keep pushing for higher heights… We don’t have time to be distracted…
Throwing shots on records has always been part of the art ( not always necessary ) and sometimes keeps artiste on their toes especially with the Hiphop Dancehall genre but there are limits to it …
With an industry dominated by men , egos will always be up but again as men we need to control our emotions ( very hard to do ) but it’s a must. Our reflexes might lead us to make wrong choices and we definitely have to work on em.
FOCUS on the WORK
We can disagree with each other and we don’t have to be friends but we can’t let that take away from the fact that we know how DOPE we are ? … We all play a part in pushing our country Ghana.
My brother SHATTA-WALE can get me mad ( cos I’m human ) and I have every right to… same as him but I will never ever Let that take away how dope this brother is in my eyes … and he knows that for sure !
My countless conversations has been about the bigger picture … you don’t need to like me I don’t either but we can’t miss the ‘BIGGER PICTURE‘
What do you think about his post?
