Musician Fuse ODG is unhappy with comedian Michael Blackson’s comments about Ghana’s music industry.
The comedian in an interview said that the country only has four international artistes despite the huge pool of musicians.
Taking to Twitter, Fuse ODG stated that such comments only embarrass the country and music industry when the comedian should be educating people instead.
He noted that personally, he had introduced Micheal Blackson to many talented artistes in Ghana, hence his statements were uncalled for.
“Mike…I don’t know how you go on @Drinkchamps and say there are only 4 artists in Ghana. Not cool bro. I’ve personally introduced u to a lot of GH artists in GH! smh. Stop embarrassing us on these platforms…you’re supposed to educate them,” Fuse ODG wrote.
This comes after Michael Blackson named Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie, and Black Sherif as the only superstars from Ghana.
He made this comment in an interview on the Drink Champs podcast hosted by N.O.R.E. & DJ EFN.
According to him, these four superstars mentioned are the only ones that Ghana has when it comes to international representation as compared to Nigerians who have a host of artists who are major and well-known across the world.
However, many Ghanaians took exception to his statements with some mentioning some other acts that have had international recognition over the years.
He acknowledged some of these artistes including Fuse ODG. The comedian also noted that he did not know Camidoh was Ghanaian when one Twitter user drew his attention to the young artiste.
Micheal Blackson admitted that he needed to learn a lot more about Ghanaian artistes because he did not remember many names.
