Ghanaian artiste, Shatta Wale has advocated for a higher percentage of music on Ghanaian airwaves to be that of Ghanaian artistes.
In the past few days, stakeholders in the Ghanaian music industry have called for at least 80% of Ghanaian music on the airwaves, the former however wants a higher percentage.
“…I even want it to be 95%,” retorted Wale when he shared his opinion on the issue Tuesday morning to Andy Dosty on Hitz FM.
“We have to try and grow our culture. People are been misled. I even think we should not encourage any other kind of music in Ghana.”
Wale called for the need to liaise with the government to grow the Ghanaian music industry.
“…I believe it is a good thing but let’s try and let the government know that we are ready,” explained the ‘Amount’ act.
“We have some loopholes that we have to study and work well. If we don’t do this, the government is never going to take us serious.”
