M.anifest Rapper Doesn’t See The Reason Why He Should Grant Interviews On Sarkodie/Charterhouse Saga

M.anifest doesn't see the reason why he should grant interviews on Sarkodie/Charterhouse brouhaha, thus he has released a statement which reveals his focus in the music industry.

Rapper M.anifest seems not happy at all with the Ghanaian media as they create controversies around some opinions he shares on social media. He blasted the media yesterday (April 7) over a misinterpreted proverb he shared on Facebook on April 6.

Following a story that Pulse.com.gh published on Tuesday, April 7 about backing rapper Sarkodie on the Charterhouse saga, the “Someway Bi” hit maker has released a statement today (April 8) to let the public know where his focus in the music industry lies.

Read the full statement below(Unscripted):

“Stories have been written about this tweet and I have been asked to do a number of interviews. I am amused that a sentiment that most, if not all human beings expect on a daily basis – that of respect – can be so controversial.

Is it too much to ask that musicians who spend 
countless hours and resources creating the next big song, video and who frequently entertain the public often at rates below their output and value get accorded basic courtesies?

Secondly, Sarkodie has spoken for himself and I am unqualified to be his spokesperson. However isn’t it surprising that a fellow ambassador of Ghanaian music to the World could get to the point where he feels so aggrieved as to resort to Twitter to air out those grievances? The narrative he told was a familiar one.

Beyond these observations there is the larger question of how to support artists as they work. Is there a need for more policies to be enacted to protect artists, their work and that adequately compensates them for their intellectual property? Outside of government help, how should the public consume our work in a way that can reward us? Should the focus be on private 
initiatives or should we be relying on taxpayer money that is at its limits when you consider our status as a developing country? What about investments in infrastructure?

These are questions (and there are more) that will hopefully spark conversations; productive conversations that can lead to long term change and not bickering and ego tripping. Anything short of that unfortunately merely fills the airwaves for a limited time with no 
path to correcting fundamental issues.

I am more than happy to engage with all of you 
(‪#‎manifans & others) on this when i'm not writing, recording or coming up with some mind boggling lucrative ideas that will ensure I flourish and not starve in this ‪#‎somewaybi environment.

Peace Peace
