Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale not bigger than the industry,VGMAs ban should not be lifted –Rex Omar speaks
Veteran hi-life musician Rex Omar has urged the board and organizers of the VGMAs not to lift the ban placed on dancehall artistes Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale were banned indefinitely from the awards after Stonebwoy pulled a gun on stage while receiving an award last year when Shatta Wale decided to go and congratulate him.
The veteran musician thinks the two artistes are not bigger than Ghana’s music industry.
He stated that the industry is guided by rules and after their brawl at the 2019 VGMAs, the ban should serve as a deterrent to other artistes.
“They are not bigger than the industry…if we allow them to be bigger than the industry, then we don’t have an industry, forget it. Principles must stand.” he stated vividly.
Rex Omar said the ban on the two must continue to serve the purpose for which it was handed.
