Afro-pop sensation Wiyaala descended on Entertainment pundit and blogger Arnold Asamoah Baidoo for claiming she doesn’t count in the Ghana music industry because she is focusing on the International market.
Wiyaala sent out a stern warning to Arnold and other entertainment pundits to leave her name out of their discussions if they claim she doesn’t count in the music scene anymore.
“This message is going to industry players especially those who do the blogging and criticising and whatever. Please, KMJ, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo and whatever…..If I don’t really count in this industry and I have never been counted as part of this industry, then don’t discuss me when you are talking about showbiz in Ghana,” Wiyaala stated.
However, many wondered what exactly Arnold Asamoah Baidoo said about Wiyaala that triggered her to vent her anger on entertainment pundits and industry players.
Wiyaala’s displeasure was at the back of comments made by Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo on Ghanaweb TV’s entertainment review show ‘Bloggers Forum’.
Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo during the discussion rubbished renowned music producer, JMJ’s opinion that the Ghana music female scene is currently dead.
According to JMJ Kaakie, Mzvee and the late Ebony Reigns were the few female artists making waves in the industry.
JMJ added ‘we can hardly see any female in that same light as the aforementioned female artistes’ now.
He mentioned Wiyaala as the only female artist who is doing well internationally and that aside from her the rest are still not there yet.
“You can’t always mention my name and turn around and say ‘shouts to Wiyaala but she doesn’t count because she and manager are just concentrating abroad doing international stuff…”
“During the time of Kaakie I am sure you guys saw how active she was with her A-game and changing the scene so quickly. Same was MzVee and Ebony (of blessed memory) when they hopped on too – these 3 females directed all the traffic to their corner and gave us hits back to back nonstop“.
“We can hardly see any female in that same light as them. Shouts to Wiyaala who is doing well out there, she could be an exception but the rest are still not there yet for me” JMJ stressed in a recent interview.
Arnold Asamoah Baidoo disagreed with JMJ’s comment as he claimed that the likes of Wendy Shay, Adina, Sista Afia, Eno Barony are doing well for themselves.
He also commended Wiyaala for her impact in the international market adding that she can not be mentioned in the discussion as she is targeting the international globe.
