He further expressed gratitude to Dentaa Amoateng and others for their support in providing such an opportunity for Ghana.

Stonebwoy raised concerns about Ghana’s inability to raise the necessary funds to seal the service agreement and join the initiative, especially when other countries like Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Africa have already done so.

He urged the Ghanaian government to explore all options, including seeking assistance from the private sector, to raise the required funds and emphasized the importance of Ghana’s participation in this initiative.

In a tweet, he said:

“The Grammys’ expansion into Africa is akin to the Grammys’ expansion into the Latin world, hence the Latin Grammys.

“These schemes, namely the Grammys, BETs, GMAs, MVAs, etc., are institutions that will forever control vital narratives concerning music, arts, and entertainment globally. Aligning with them has great benefits and economic potential for the growth and expansion of Ghana’s creative industry. Thanks to @Dentaa_show, among others, for playing pivotal roles to ensure Ghana is not left out. But as it stands, we are closing in on being left out and becoming another mockery case.

“The governments of Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Africa have all paid and sealed their service agreements to become founding members. The big questions are: 1. Why not Ghana? 2. Can’t the government raise the money? 3. Can’t the government ask the private sector to help raise the money? 4. Isn’t it important to be a part of this?” he wrote.
