Shatta Wale has offered his input on whether Mark Okraku Mantey is good for the Deputy Minister of Creative Arts, Tourism and Culture position as suggested by a few.
Shatta believed that the industry needs an implantation of innovation and novel thoughts that Mark Okraku Mantey doesn’t have.
As per the SM Boss, Mark, who is a pioneer in the music business doesn’t have the vision expected to take the business to the next level.
Shatta Wale’s said, “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 a vision.”
In addition, he said ”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”.
