Wendy Shay, a RuffTown music signee, was instructed on social media by legendary hip-hop musician Tic after she requested that people thank Nigerians for promoting the Afrobeats genre.
The Stevie Wonder hitmaker believes it’s past time for Ghanaian musicians to begin thanking their Nigerian counterparts for their contribution to the global success of the Afrobeats genre.
She requested, as usual, that Ghanaians wake up and take action to draw attention to their nation, much like Nigerians had done.
She wrote on Facebook that Ghanaian artists should thank Nigerian artists for popularizing Afrobeats and drawing attention to Africa. Ghana, Awake.
Tic, formerly known as Tic Tac, who has been in the music industry for more than ten years, felt that Wendy Shay’s remarks shouldn’t be encouraged and decided to enlighten her.
Tic responded by saying that, rather than the other way around, Nigerians should be the ones thanking Ghanaian musicians.
He continued by saying that if it weren’t for the prevalence of PHD (Pull him/her Down) syndrome in the nation, things might have turned out differently. However, he is now advising Wendy Shay to focus on making music rather than trying to get involved in activities about which she is ignorant.
Who should thank who? I believe it should have gone the other way, he said. Things might have turned out differently if it weren’t for our bad Ghanaian PHD syndrome. Enjoy your music, keep pushing forward for yourself, and avoid involving your country in matters you are unfamiliar with.
