Celebrated Ghanaian showbiz pundit and CEO of Slip Music, Mark Okraku Mantey, has asked dancehall artist, Shatta Wale to stop downplaying the contributions of the traditional media in his career.
The head honcho of the Shatta Movement Empire always attributes his success in the music industry to social media.
The ‘ Dancehall King’ singer maintains the influx of social media helped him rejuvenate his career when the traditional media paid no attention to his music.
However, Okraku Mantey, believes Shatta Wale is being ungrateful for making such claims.
Shatta Wale never misses an opportunity to show appreciation to his fans and followers for the undying love shown him even in his desk days.
He says they are the reason he is still relevant in the Ghanaian music industry.
According to Okraku Mantey, Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah, must thank the media for the constant support.
“After Shatta Wale’s stunt at VGMA, he was given airtime worth 45 minutes on Peace FM by Kwasi Aboagye, and that was an agenda set by the presenter to help his comeback. Traditional media played a role in making Shatta Wale, and it’s a fact. He still rely on TV and Radio to make it more bigger” he recounted
Okraku Mantey who is unhappy about how the multiple award-winning reggae and dancehall artist keep being ungrateful said Ghanaian radio and television stations made Shatta Wale.
“Shatta Wale cannot in anyway say Traditional Media did not help him in anyway at all, and that only his fans and Social Media made him who he’s today.” he added
