Ghanaian Highlife Singer, Dada Hafco has taken swipe at Shatta Wale for telling his colleague musicians, Stonebwoy, Samini and Sarkodie to quit doing music.
The Radio Pundit who is not in support of Wale’s opinion said he lacks knowledge for making such comments.
This comes after the Zylofon signee attacked Samini, Sarkodie Stonebwoy, calling them hypocrites.
He said they should quit doing music because they do not understand the fundamentals of being a musician and also they fail to influence the lives of their followers and people in the country at large.
According to Shatta Wale, his colleagues have chosen to ignore pertinent issues happening in the industry.
He indicated that his friend Sarkodie has never thought of helping any artiste in the music industry.
“Who has Sarkodie produced since he came? I bought cars for my Militants and I buy cars for my fans and that is what I expect them to do.” He told Vibes in 5
Responding to Shatta Wale, Dada Hafco indicated that there is no limitations to creativity so people who tell veteran musicians or musicians who to them are no more relevant to retire doing music should think through again.
Speaking on Zylofon Fm, the ‘Yebewuti’ hit singer said music is attached to the brain that is why aged foreign musicians are still making money from their music.
“It’s an ignorant statement to tell an artiste to retire. Some musicians started music in 1970s and still doing music so why tell someone who started music in 2000s to quit music. Music is a career attached to the brain and you can only stop doing music when your brain stops functioning. One thing about music is that the more you grow, the more nicer you become. Our mindset and the way our system is being run will always make way for people to make such needless statements about musicians.” Dada Hafo said.
Highlife musician Wutah Afriyie, a member of the musical group Wutah, at the 2018 Ghana Music Awards UK, rubbished claim by other musicians telling their colleagues to retire.
He advised his colleagues who joined the music industry around the same time with him some years ago to work harder since there is no retirement age in music.
“If you are here and you are a musician, to the younger folks I will say do what you think you can do, do your best, and to my colleagues I started with there is no retirement age in music. We are not footballers, at any stage you can make hit songs“, Wutah Afriyie noted.
He advised that the younger folks should give off their best and the veterans should also not give up.
