Livingstone Etse Satekla popularly known on stage as Stonebwoy a Ghanaian afropop, dancehall and reggae artiste has trashed Nhyiraba Kojo’s assertion that musicians in Ghana should give Shatta Wale a cut of what they charge per show due to the high bars Shatta Wale has lifted in the Ghanaian music industry.
According to Stonebwoy, Nhyiraba Kojo’s statement isn’t complete as on which kind of bar as he Stonebwoy he won’t give anything to him.
Nhyiraba Kojo in an interview over the week with Zylofon FM said: “now artists are been able to charge to charge 50K and above, so artists should give Shatta Wale a cut of it.”
Speaking with King Lagazee on Hitz FM, Stonebwoy asked King Lagazee which bars did Shatta raise after he was asked his opinion on the bars Shatta Wale raised for the Ghanaian music industry.
Jesus! which bar did Shatta Wale raise? beer bar or chop bar?” Livingstone Etse Satekla asked.
In addition, he said, Nhyiraba Kojo has the right to say whatever he wants but if he charges above 50000 cedis he can pay a percentage to Shatta Wale, they are behind him.
‘I started charging 50K before Shatta Wale came into the scene over this 50K and above chargers as he knows other artists who even charge more’, he revealed.
He revealed he charges GHC 80,000 to GHC 100,000 for a show adding that doing free shows ain’t his target.
