Live up to your promises – Stonebwoy tells NPP govt
Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy, has asked the government to fulfil its promises to the creative arts sector.
According to him, current and past government governments make lofty promises to develop the arts industry in their manifestos but eventually fail to deliver when they win power.
“The government must fulfil their promises…at the end of every four years, they come with manifestos to address issues in the sector, but eventually, it falls someway, somehow,” he said.
He maintained that the government in itself is a witness to the fact that their manifestos are not being realized.
The artiste, born Livingstone Etse Satekla, stressed the need for authorities to prioritize entertainment, arts and culture because it boasts of selling points that can be used to attract investors.
“If I move across doing my thing and by the grace of God become a household name, I go along with Ghana… the government still takes credit for our hard work,” he stressed.
Commenting on the nomination of entertainment pundit Mark Okraku Mantey as Deputy Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, the Bafira hitmaker said, “since he is from the industry, I hope he helps raise the industry and get the needed support”.
Stonebwoy was speaking in an interview on YFM, which was monitored by The Ghana Report.
