Renowned Ghanaian music producer, Edward Nana Poku Osei, otherwise known as Hammer, has berated the VGMA Board after they lifted the ban placed on Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
In a post on Facebook, Hammer said they should have given prior information to the artistes before their public statement on the decision they took.
He advised them to show some respect and quit being arrogant.
Hammer wrote: “Totally agree, makes perfect sense… especially as we all knw why the ban was lifted. Why did they have to hear about this with the rest of us. Not even a letter to their outfits before the public announcement… leading to the conclusion that this can only be a stunt for the upcoming event and has nothing to do with any them.
“VGMA has been the most successful entity in the history of our music industry. All record labels in our history put together can’t even match up to half of the success you’ve enjoyed. The industry has been generous and good to u for business with great content, so SHOW SOME RESPECT and quit this arrogant playing God stunt.
“This won’t be tolerated in this industry. If you realize you can’t have a successful show without the Star Boys just admit it and do the right thing by them and Quit moving goal posts as and when u see fit for selfish reasons.”
His comment comes after Stonebwoy raised concerns about the Board’s failure to communicate with them or their reps before lifting the ban.
