Shatta Wale has said in one of his social media rants that the ambiance permeating the music industry in Ghana is that of a confused one. 1Don says media practitioners ascribe different identities to the genre of music Ghanaian artiste do so it’s hard for them to please these bunch of people who are supposed to know better. His remarks are firmly hinged on the trolls he and other mainstream artistes were subjected to in the wake of Burna Boy and Wizkid’s exploit at the 63rd edition of the Grammy Awards. Shatta believes in the ensuing confusion that arises as a result of the foregoing, it makes it hard for the media guys to push their songs so they get to a wide scale of acceptance.
