There is no doubt that Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale is one of the biggest musicians in Ghana and with a huge fanbase that is completely loyal and will do almost anything he says.
However, Highlife musician Anthony Akablay, says Shatta Wale is having a negative impact on the youth.
“With his large fan base I don’t expect Shatta Wale to use certain words and engage in indecent acts. I know he has the largest fan base in Ghana at the moment but what impact is he making on them?
The youth are engaged in all sorts of bad activities because they see him as their role model and blindly copy what he does,” he told Showbiz in an interview on Saturday, April 13.
To Akablay, because Shatta Wale has a lot of influence on the youth, he can push them to using their energies and time positively.
“I expect a lot from him as the leader he claims to be because the youths are going wayward and I will blame it largely on him,” he said.
Will he ever do a collaboration with Shatta Wale? Akablay said he does not think so because their because they have different brands.
Away from Shatta Wale, Akablay is not happy with the new crop of musicians because in his opinion they are indisciplined when it comes to the music business.
“Most of these young musicians are so indisciplined which gets me upset. You give them time for a meeting and they come at their own time.
“Others do not even regard their managers because they believe they are more famous than their managers. I have been talking to some of them and I pray they change,” he said.
