Celebrated Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall artist, Stonebwoy, has voiced out his disappointment over Ghana’s failure to secure a deal to join the Grammys Africa initiative as a founding member.

The acclaimed musician, who recently took home the Artiste of the Year award at the 25th TGMA, highlighted the significant benefits and economic opportunities that such an initiative could bring to the nation’s creative industry.

Taking to Twitter, Stonebwoy questioned why Ghana had not yet become a founding member of the Grammys Africa initiative.

He expressed his gratitude to Dentaa Amoateng and others for their support in attempting to create this opportunity for Ghana, while also raising concerns about the country’s inability to raise the necessary funds to seal the service agreement.

The ‘Therapy’ hitmaker pointed out that other African nations, such as Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Africa, have already joined the initiative, thereby securing their positions and reaping the associated benefits.

Stonebwoy stressed that Ghana’s participation in the Grammys Africa initiative would not only enhance the country’s cultural footprint but also bring substantial economic advantages to the creative sector.

In a tweet, he said;

”The Grammys Expansion into africa is simply like the Grammys expansion into the Latin world therefore the Latin Grammys.

These Schemes namely Grammys , BETS, GMAs,MVAs etc are institutions that will forever control vital narratives concerning music , arts and entertainment Globally. Aligning with them has great benefits and economic potentials for the Growth and expansion of Ghanas creative industry.. Thanks to @Dentaa_show

amongst others for playing pivotal roles to make sure Ghana is not left out. But as it stands we are closing in on being left out to become another mockery case.

”The Governments of Nigeria Rwanda  South Africa have all Paid and sealed their service agreements to become founding members.. The big question is 1. WHY NOT GHANA??? 2. CAN GOV’T NOT RAISE THE MONEY??? 3. CAN GOV’T ASK PRIVATE SEC TO HELP RAISE THE MONEY?? 4. IS IT NOT IMPORTANT BE A PART OF THIS?” he wrote.
