Forget spiritual attacks in entertainment industry, lack of unity is the problem - Sonnie Badu
Renowned Ghanaian gospel singer and songwriter, Sonnie Badu, is challenging the prevailing narrative of spiritual attacks in the Ghanaian entertainment industry as untrue.
While many of his industry colleagues, including Wendy Shay and Mr. Drew, have publicly shared their experiences, Sonnie Badu contends that the industry's real issue is a lack of unity among its members.
The Baba singer was very assertive with the opinion that the industry's woes stem from internal divisions rather than external spiritual threats.
According to Sonnie Badu, the key to overcoming the challenges faced by Ghanaian artistes lies in collaboration and unity.
He emphasised the need for artistes to come together, support one another, and foster a culture of cooperation rather than cutthroat competition.
"The problem we have is not a spiritual attack; the problem is that we are not united. If we could put our gifts together, we wouldn’t be under attack because we would complement each other and not compete against each other.
" There is competition everywhere. If someone sees that another person is doing well, they're not going to encourage that person; they'll rather do something to pull them down. That's the problem we have; we cannot rally around people to push them to keep going. That's what the Nigerians do; they can sit and say, 'Today, let's push this one,' and that's the agenda. So we are not under attack; we just need to work together," he noted in a recent interview on Hitz FM.
He went on to highlight a concerning trend within the Ghanaian entertainment industry—sabotage and the act of pulling others down citing the Nigerian music industry as a prime example of unity, where artistes unite to promote collective success, rather than tearing each other down.
