Charles Nii Armah Mensah, known as shatta wale and Livingston Satekla, known as Stonebwoy have since been beefing each other for the past five years and their feud is being channelled to the highest policy making body in Ghana, Parliament for proper mediation.
These two artistes, started their feud way before they were signed onto zylofon music but as a coefficient factor, they are both battling for supremacy in dancehall music and their fire can’t cool.
With that being said, their feud is the war of the moment and of all time when it comes to the billion dollar entertainment industry in Ghana, one casely Hayford thinks it demands parliament’s attention for immediate mediation. This what casely hayford said on citifm;
Casely-Hayford said he wrote to the Council of State over the issue to help safeguard the entertainment industry.
“They have to really get into it because if we are not careful, the two will ruin the whole entertainment industry and the industry is a big money earner,” he said on Citi FM’s The Big Issue on Saturday.
He, however, said several petitions he has forwarded to the Council bordering on national issues had not received any response.
Zylofon Media and Menzgod Invasion in Nigeria was a “success and a disgrace” to our super stars.
“I have written to the [previous] Council of State on two issues now and said that they had to deal with the GYEEDA issue and they should get the president to set up a better commission and insist on CHRAJ doing its work. They didn’t mind me and nothing was said.”
So last week I’ve written to the current Council of State on a very sensitive matter which I insist they have to look into. They have to sit down and mediate between this issue going on between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
“They have to really get into it because if we are not careful, the two will ruin the whole entertainment industry and the industry is a big money earner,” he said.
Some of the other panellists on the show said Mr. Casely-Hayford’s petition over Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy meant a vote of no confidence on the Council of State.
To them, it meant that because the Council could not resolve major national issues, it should attempt to solve the Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy feud which is not serious.
The 1992 Constitution empowers the Council of State to advise the President in the discharge of his functions, but the advice is not binding on the president.
“There shall be a Council of State to counsel the President in the performance of his functions,” the constitution states.
However, there have been complaints that the Council usually serves as a “rubber stamp” institution and does not in any way scrutinize any policy, a claim the Council has rejected.
