Rapper Ponobiom has refuted reports that quoted him as saying if Shatta Wale organizes an awards scheme, Stonebwoy will still win “Dancehall Artiste of the Year.”
Also known as Yaa Pono, the rapper said he was astonished when he heard the news.
It was reported that Ponobiom had said Shatta Wale cannot rub shoulders with Stonebwoy when it comes to producing quality dancehall tunes and that Stonebwoy will continue winning the “Best Dancehall Artiste” award at the expense of Shatta Wale.
He is alleged to have also said even if Shatta Wale organises his own awards show, Stonebwoy will still win the “Best Dancehall Artiste” award.
Reacting to the reports, in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Yaa Pono, who returned from a tour of some countries, repudiated the reports.
“Where is the audio and where is the proof,” he quizzed.
According to him, when he heard it, he asked that they ignore it because there was no truth to the story.
“If the news is not healthy, it doesn’t help the industry,” the rapper lamented and stressed that, “I’m a very nice guy, I’m a very humble guy” and if anyone wants to interview him, he is always open.
The stories, Ponobiom noted, were “below the belt” and “when I saw it, I didn’t care about it.”
