Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Barbara Oteng Gyasi has cautioned Dancehall Reggae artistes Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale to engage in a healthy competition that could project Ghana in a positive way to the global world.
According to her, “Charter House has raised the Ghanaian music to a different level with the awards scheme and with the 20th Anniversary; we were hoping it will create opportunities to draw more foreigners to the Ghanaian Music industry.
“The violence stole the joy of the event and brought a lot of disgrace because it was telecast on the international media but the Ministry will sit both artistes down to provide them with some counselling in order to channel their effort to help the industry,” she said at the 2019 International Museums Day celebration in Accra.
The Minister condemned the attitude displayed by the duo at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards which has been criticised by many Ghanaians.
Speaking at the event, the Minister further noted that the government was committed to resource and reactive all national museums soon to provide the opportunity to appreciate Ghana’s cultural heritage to boost tourism in the country.
