“The Right To Be Heard Is A Principle That Applies In Every Noble Society” – Stonebwoy Breaks Silence On VGMA Board’s Decision To Lift Ban On Shatta Wale And Him
Ghanaian reggae/dancehall musician, Livingstone Etse Satekla, well known as Stonebwoy has broken his silence after the VGMA Board lifted a ban on Shatta Wale and him.
The VGMA Board in a statement on February 12, 2021, said the decision was taken at an inaugural meeting of the 22nd VGMA Board.
Reacting to this, Stonebwoy in a post sighted by Zionfelix.net stated that the VGMA Board should have met with them or their reps before the decision to lift the ban.
He tweeted: “Dear VGMA Board & Scheme organisers, I hear the purpose of the VGMA is to celebrate and project Ghanaian musicians and music. If that is so, it takes nothing from you to meet with us the artistes/our reps b4 reaching decisions that affect us and communicating them to the public.
“The right to be heard is a principle that applies in every noble society. Even the all seeing God, who had already seen and knew all that Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden, still made sure he heard them before he took action against them. #IfTheySoDesire really???”
If you would recall Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale were banned indefinitely by the VGMA Board following their fracas at the 20th edition of the award scheme.
