In a tweet posted this week, the former backed Anamoah’s decision to question an executive of the music channel on why they air few Ghanaian music videos.
“Gotta give Nana Aba props for challenging Trace… for the culture.” tweeted M. Dot.

In a related development, Anamoah has expressed her concern about “inadequate airtime given to Ghanaian musicians” on music platforms via a post on Instagram.
She also reacted to the incident that happened on the stage before she presented an award at the 2018 Ghana Music Awards.
Read her full post below.
“I’m greatly concerned about the inadequate airtime given to Ghanaian musicians who work tirelessly to entertain music lovers. I appreciate @tracenaija’s commitment to change the narrative. The success of this year’s VGMA is a testimony to the seriousness of the Ghanaian music industry. I only noticed the ‘shove’ when the video was circulated. I deeply appreciate the concern of well wishers who weren’t enthused by it. I’m confident that the public uproar has sufficiently dealt with the matter. Let us now channel our energies into prevailing upon @tracenaijato do right by Ghanaian musicians, by giving them the airtime they have earned just as they do for others. Thank you”
