During last night's fracas at United Showbiz, Arnold Asamoah took the opportunity to teach Shatta Wale about the mutual benefits that the various stakeholders in the music industry derive from each other.
According to Arnold, everyone involved in the propagation of the Ghanaian music industry has a role to play. And all these roles intertwine to help push the singular agenda of the bill. So, respect is very fundamental to ensuring the smooth turning of the music industry's wheels.
"Some of the artists don't want to respect presenters and journalists," he said. But these are their roles. Without journalists and the media, the artist is nothing. Every role player must respect the other role players. That’s how we can foster unity. "
This submission came after Shatta Wale shamed him for wearing ‘cheap shoes’ because Arnold called him a confused and inconsistent artist. But this did not stop Arnold from insisting that respect is important and should be mutual to be effective. Journalists, he said, should respect managers and musicians. The same courtesy should be extended to journalists and radio hosts by musicians.
But Shatta Wale countered that the only journalists he knows are from the Graphic and the Times. these were the news outlets available when he was growing up. And so those are the journalists he will acknowledge.
