Video: Every season has its artistes – Stonebwoy replies Tic Tac

Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy has played down criticisms that the Ghanaian music industry is currently being run by three artistes.

According to him, every season in the music industry has its own celebrated artistes.

Speaking to KMJ on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Tuesday, Stonebwoy said listeners get attached to the music of up-and-coming artistes who turn to rule the music scene till the songs of others take over.

“Once upon a time Tic Tac [now called Tic], Tinny and some other artiste were ruling the music scene. They were hotter when some of us were not,” he added.

Stonebwoy was responding to Tic’s comments on the Ghana music industry ruled by three artistes.

The hiplife artiste accused industry players and show organisers for booking three artistes for almost every show during the 2018 Christmas season.

According to Tic, the monopoly some of these artistes are enjoying have caused other singers to be sidelined. This, he says, does not help other artistes grow.

He explained that the music industry has a pool of musicians with different styles and vibes that need to be shown to the people.

“Once you create the environment where everybody has a gig then we’ll have a variety of acts at the shows,” he said.
