Dancehall act and Bhim Nation boss, Stonebwoy has replied rapper Tic who was formerly known as Tic Tac after the latter stated categorically that only three artistes control the music industry in Ghana.
According to Tic, the industry players must give every single artist a chance when booking acts for shows. He further made known his displeasure about how only few musicians have hijacked the music space for shows.
But reacting to this on on Hitz Fm, Stonebwoy said Tic, even though his career in cemented in Ghana’s music scene, he must understand that this is a new season with new crop of artistes. He stated that ” Every season, ( I mean) five to ten years, we do have new acts who will top the lead. Once upon a time people got used to the style of the “Ss” Sonni Balli, Samini and Sarkodie, but now the “Ks” Kwame Eugene, King Promise and company are doing so well”.
He continued that, ” we realized that people get used to certain styles and its like a ritual now and that’s part of the problem. Maybe ten years from now, other artistes will be hotter than some of us”.
When asked about how the problem can be solved, Stonebwoy simply said the system makes older artistes less expensive to book than current musicians. According to Stonebwoy, older acts are supposed to be expensive to book if only the music system works in Ghana like it is done in the western world.
