Following Asake’s sold-out performance at the O2 Arena, another heated argument has broken out between Ghanaian and Nigerian stakeholders.
Asake became the most recent African artist to accomplish this feat, following Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy, by selling out the 20,000-seat O2 Arena in London.
Asake’s first performance at the Arena, one of the biggest and most prestigious indoor arenas in the world, occurred on August 20, 2023.
Fans have widely celebrated this achievement on social media, but it has revived the afrobeats dispute between Ghanaian and Nigerian artists.
Some stakeholders in the Ghanaian music industry have bemoaned sabotage from Nigerian stakeholders who, in their opinion, do not want Ghana to share in the success of Afrobeats as a whole.
The stakeholders in the Nigerian industry have responded to these allegations in some way on social media, as noticed by 1Family radio.
