BET award winning act Stonebwoy, has called on his fellow Ghanaian artistes to abandon trivialities and concentrate on developing their individual arts to make them more internationally accepted.
Stonebwoy lost to his Nigerian friend, Patoranking, who took the Best New Act at the MTV Africa Music Awards Kwazulu Natal 2015 held at the ICC Durban over the weekend.
Moments after the awards event, Shatta Wale tweeted “some ghanaians are too popular in america not africa lol”.
But addressing to the said tweet in an interview on Starr FM, the Go Higher singer reacted;
“I’m an artist who concertartes on my arts and I do my best to keep going to entertain the people who appreciate me and appreciate my work.
“Shatta Wale has the right to his Twitter and to write whatever he wants to write.I haven’t seen that but if I had which you said is Some Ghanaian acts are more in America than Africa, It still makes sense. I dont get hurt from that because I believe it takes effort to move from one place to the other.
“I was so close at the MAMAs, I was there, I was nominated, and at the end of the day I know what happened. I dont think it was directed at me but as Ghanaians we need to support our own and push it.
“We shouldn’t be looking at the mockery side because from experience I think we have to work hard to be known outside Ghana.”
