Self acclaimed African Dancehall king Shatta Wale says the President of the Creative Arts Agency, Mark Okraku Mantey, cannot serve in the role of deputy minister of the Creative Arts Industry.
In an interview with YFM’s Rev. Erskine on the Y Leaderboard Series, he stated: “If our leaders are listening to me, I think it [Ministry of Creative Arts,Tourism and Culture] is something that they need to dissolve. We are in the technology world now. Someone like Mark Okraku Mantey can’t be there. Our leaders need to know. I am not saying it because I want to spoil his job. His job was a producer who became a Programmes Director at wherever he is but people like that don’t have vision.
Up till now, I haven’t seen his house. He cannot encourage me. Up to now, I have not seen certain things in the industry that has pushed me. We are talking about creative arts here. But ask yourself how many artistes have gotten their royalties in the industry. In this music industry that we are in, Amakye Dede is still complaining”.
Shatta Wale continued to say that “he will just put everything to halt for like a month because our creative arts is not the best at all in this country”.
Meanwhile, he has said that if he were to be appointed a minister of the creative arts, he will choose either Stonebwoy or Sarkodie to be his deputy minister.
