Gov’t will not yield to pressure from celebrities to open borders – Samini

Published

on

Ghanaian artiste, Samini has said he trusts the government to make a better judgment as far as closing the borders and curbing the spread of the coronavirus is concerned.

According to him, it would not take “action or inaction from any of us to make the government do what they need to do for international safety”.

Since the borders were closed in March restricting travels, artistes including D Black, Sarkodie and Pappy Kojo have made it known they were stuck outside Ghana.

They continuously through social media pleaded that the borders be open for them to come back home.

Their fans and a few notable people joined in to share their opinions on why they feel these artistes deserved some sort of ‘celebrity treatment’.

However, the same cannot be said of Samini who is in Canada with his family. He has not been heard pressuring the government or asking that some leniency be extended to his colleagues stuck outside the country.

In an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz Fm, he asked Samini why he has not joined his colleagues who are pressuring the government.

“I just looked at it from be broader picture. I know that the government also knows exactly what they are doing and internationally government are working based on what’s going on internationally across the boarder so if it isn’t time for the government to open the borders, I don’t think our pressure will make them do that,” he stated.

He added “although I can’t wait to get back to my regular routine, I have always just sat back and given the government the benefit of the doubt because Ghana as a nation is one of the countries doing very well in managing the Covid-19 pandemic.”

He also believes people are talking too much instead of just trusting the government to make the right decisions.

Stonebwoy and I should be fighting for IRAWMA Awards not BET – Shatta Wale

Published

on

Dancehall King born Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known in Showbiz as Shatta Wale has advised that instead of Ghanaians respecting an artiste based on his BET nomination or awards, they should consider the genre of music the person does first.

Speaking as a guest on UTV’s United Showbiz show, Shatta Wale explained that as a dancehall artiste, BET awards or nomination shouldn’t be his focus because it focuses on hiplife artistes like Sarkodie.
” Ghanaians like that too much! If you don’t get a BET award, they discredit every other award you get which shouldn’t be so. My brother Stonebwoy and I should be focused on IRAWMA Awards because it celebrates African dancehall artistes across the globe.

” See let me tell you this, the BET is dominated by Hip Hop and RnB artists and I will always pick the IRAWMA over it because its the only award scheme that celebrates dancehall artistes.” He told show host, Nana Ama Mcbrown.

Shatta Wale reiterated that; “The BET awards should be fought over by people like Sarkodie since that’s his field..so I don’t understand it when Ghanaians start trolling me for not getting BET nomination or awards..it doesn’t make any sense”.
The International Reggae and World Music Awards (IRWMA )is an award scheme hosted in Jamaica annually to honor and celebrate reggae-dancehall artistes all over the world.
Our very own, Stonebwoy has been one of the lucky people to boast about receiving such an award.
