I Don’t Have Time To Listen To Stonebwoy’s Album: Socrates Safo
Socrates Safo, a renowned film actor and producer, has recently stirred up controversy with his remarks about not having the time to listen to Stonebwoy’s new album, 5th Dimension.
The comments were made during a discussion with Akwasi Aboagye on Peace FM, where he was asked if he had listened to the album yet.
Safo responded by saying that he had not listened to the album, and went on to say that he had no interest in doing so because he only listens to songs that he has a personal interest in. He further stated that he had already listened to all the tracks on Shatta Wale’s GOG album, and was therefore done with listening to new albums for the time being.
However, his comments did not sit well with fellow panelist Arnold Baidoo, who advised him to be more careful with his statements in the future, especially when in an intellectual discussion. Socrates tried to backtrack and control the damage done, but it was already too late.
The video of the discussion has since gone viral, with fans of Stonebwoy taking to social media to express their disappointment and outrage at Socrates’ comments. Many have accused him of being biased towards Shatta Wale and not giving Stonebwoy a fair chance.
Some fans have also questioned whether Socrates’ comments are reflective of a larger problem in the Ghanaian music industry, where artists are often pitted against each other in a bid to prove who is the best. They argue that such a mentality only serves to divide fans and create unnecessary rivalry between artists.
In response to the backlash, Socrates has since issued a statement apologizing for his remarks and promising to listen to Stonebwoy’s album. He acknowledged that his comments were insensitive and apologized to Stonebwoy and his fans for any offense caused.
In conclusion, the incident serves as a reminder that words can have a powerful impact, especially in the age of social media. It is important for public figures to be mindful of their words and actions, and to always strive to promote unity and positivity in the communities they serve.
