A member of the pressure group, Occupy Ghana, has written to the Council of State to resolve the impasse between music icons, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
The two artistes who are signed on to the same record label (Zylofon Media) have not been on good terms for some time now.
They have been fighting for supremacy in dancehall music.
Casely-Hayford said he wrote to the Council of State over the issue for them to help safeguard the entertainment industry.
“They have to really get into it because if we are not careful, the two will ruin the whole entertainment industry and the industry is a big money earner,” he said on The Big Issue on Saturday.
He however said several petitions he has forwarded to the Council bordering on national issues had not received any response.
“I have written to the [previous] Council of State on two issues now and said that they had to deal with the GYEEDA issue and they should get the president to set up a better commission and insist on CHRAJ doing its work. They didn’t mind me and nothing was said.”
“So last week I’ve written to the current Council of State on a very sensitive matter which I insist they have to look into. They have to sit down and mediate between this issue going on between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy. They have to really get into it because if we are not careful, the two will ruin the whole entertainment industry and the industry is a big money earner,” Casely-Hayford said on The Big Issue on Saturday.
Some of the other panelists on the show said Mr. Casely-Hayford’s petition over Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy meant a vote of no confidence on the Council of State.
To them, it meant that because the Council could not resolve major national issues, it should attempt to solve that of Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy feud which is not serious.
The 1992 Constitution empowers the Council to advise the President in the discharge of his functions, but the advice is not binding on the president.
“There shall be a Council of State to counsel the President in the performance of his functions,” the constitution states.
However, there have been complaints that the Council usually serves as a “rubber stamp” institution and does not in any way scrutinize any policy, a claim the Council has rejected.
