Ghanaian singer, Livingstone Satekla otherwise known as Stonebwoy, says the trending social media debate about Nigerians not reciprocating the love they receive from Ghana is valid.

The singer's tweet on Thursday is coming on the heel of accusation by compatriot, Shatta Wale, that Nigerians are riding on the back of Ghana to gain global prominence.

Stonebwoy said, “We were all Africans before we got separated into individual nations.

"African history and migration studies confirm that there is more that unites us than divides us.

“As the big family that we are, we all draw diverse creative inspiration from one another – no wonder then that we have similar cultures and values across the continent, and this cross-pollination is clearly shown in our music and sound.

“Accordingly, our Nigerian brothers must consider that with their great power comes the responsibility of helping to forge a united African front by deliberately allowing music from the other African countries which pollinate Nigerian music to flourish on Nigerian platforms on local and international levels.

“This approach will enable the African sound to dominate the world as one big family and as a global force…That’s how we stand as one Africa. My brother Shatta Wale’s approach may be wrong but the topic of our brother nation Nigeria not reciprocating the love and support it receives particularly from Ghana is valid and deserves critical attention.

“Meanwhile, as the saying goes, we must love our neighbours as we love ourselves (not more than we love ourselves). This means that Ghanaians home and abroad must emulate the Nigerian approach of prioritising an agenda to invest in and support Ghanaian talent.”
