The Ghana music industry is bigger than Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy – George Quaye defends Charterhouse


Entertainment pundit, George Quaye, has risen to the defense of the Charterhouse Chief Executive Officer (CEO) after the latter faced criticisms for comments she made about Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.

Theresa Ayoade’s statement “let us rise above them” – referring to Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy – did not sit well with fans of the artists.

“Can you as the media help the industry rise above these two? Let’s rise above these two and let the industry breathe and move on. Sarkodie won artiste of the decade and nobody even talked about it.

“The industry is bigger than these two artistes and that is what I want you to go back with. There are lots of young people who need the opportunity so let’s move on,” she said at a press conference

However, Mr. Quaye explained that the statement was made in context and in no way meant to suggest the company wanted the death of two of Ghana’s biggest dancehall artistes’ careers.

The former Public Relations Officer for Charterhouse told Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, on Tuesday that, the company had called a press conference to seek the input of industry players and media on how to make the next Vodafone Ghana Music Awards a great show.

But, according to Mr. Quaye, for over an hour journalists and other guests were fixated on Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy although the organization in 2019 announced the ban of the two artists from the scheme.

“At a point, it almost became an argument at the auditorium, for almost an hour two artistes, so within that context, the woman spoke and said look, let us all come together and let us rise above them…” he stated.


  1. There are no attentions on young and upcoming artist, please pay little attention on them. The two dancehall artist in question are not better than them. The industry is doing so well but we consider it to weak. Am glad that you are aware that an artist is not bigger than the industry.
