Renowned UK based Nigerian media personality, Adesope Olajide, has shared his take on the ongoing debate surrounding the prioritization of local Ghanaian content
His share comes after some Nigerian bloggers threatened to blacklist Back Sherif because of his comments on the Play Ghana appeal to the government.
The Nigerian media personality in an interview mentioned that Black Sherif’s submission to the government had no form of evil.
According to Adesope , the agenda forwarded by Smallgod, Reggie Rockstone, Samini and several other musicians is a step in the direction.
Adesope seems to think that Black Sherif came off as an easy target for the bloggers. He also added that Black Sherif’s dominance among Nigerian music listeners is too dominant for him to be blacklisted.
