Video: Let’s play 95% Ghanaian content on our airwaves – Shatta Wale


While many industry players are advocating for 80% local music on Ghanaian airways, dancehall artiste Shatta Wale is pushing for 95%.

The ‘Ayoo’ hitmaker says in order to make a statement through music, it will be imperative to go the extra mile by instituting a strict policy on the kind of music played on radio and television in Ghana.

According to him, 80% is simply not enough to achieve that target.

 “…I even want it to be 95%,” he told Andy Dosty of Hitz FM Tuesday.

“We have to try and grow our culture. People are been misled. I even think we should not encourage any other kind of music in Ghana…” he added.

Known in real life as Charles Nii Armah Mensah, Shatta Wale stressed that, despite his full support for the call spearheaded by some industry players, he is urging musicians to prove to the higher authorities that they are ready to push hard to make this advocacy a reality.

“…I believe it is a good thing but let’s try and let the government know that we are ready…,” he said.

He also stressed the importance for the government to strengthen some weak areas in the music industry. 

“We have some loopholes that we have to study and work well. If we don’t do this, the government is never going to take us serious,” he said.

The self-acclaimed ‘Dancehall King’ is currently promoting his ‘Reign’ album which will be released in October 2018.
