And the blame has chiefly been attributed to Ghanaian DJs, radio and televisions networks who keep playing Nigerian songs on their respective platforms.

Responding to his tweet, Sarkodie revealed that perhaps that could be a major reason why Nigerians are able to infiltrate the Ghanaian market and not the other way round.

Sarkodie said (in Twi): “For Nigerians, you can’t use your affluence to dominate in their country, they’ll take the money but their agenda remains the same (Naija).”
