Shatta Wale has shared his opinion on whether Mark Okraku Mantey should be appointed as Deputy Minister of Tourism & Creative Arts.
Speaking in an interview with Rev. Erskine on YFM’s Y Leaderboard Series, the Dancehall King opined that someone like Mark Okraku Mantey is not fit for the job.
“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 added that if he was to be given the position in question “he will just put everything to halt for like a month because our creative arts is not the best at all in this country”.
