Darryl Paa Kwesi Bannerman-Martin famously known as Joey B has taken a swipe at Ghanaians who take delight in making the mockery of artistes whenever they fail to win an award in music especially.
According to Joey B, artistes should be rather encouraged than the unnecessary teasing.
Citing the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards as a case study, artistes like Patapaa, King Promise, Shatta Wale among others were mocked by Ghanaians on social media simply because they failed to win in their respective categories.
Joey B couldn’t stand the trolls took to social media particularly Facebook to spit venom on those making mockery of some artistes because they failed to win an award.
“You want to know why Ghana Music isn’t going where it’s supposed to go? the problem is You. How do you mock an artiste when he/she doesn’t win in a competition? i just cannot fathom this. Aren’t we supposed to wish the artiste better luck next time? you dampen one’s spirit by putting them down while they’re trying to achieve something. Let’s do better, lets uplift ourselves”, Joey B posted on Facebook.
