Nigerian Afrobeats star Davido’s sold out show at the London 02 Arena over the weekend has opened a box of discussion among Ghanaian entertainment enthusiasts.

Following the steps of fellow Nigerian Wizkid who first did it in May 2018, Ghana is yet to have any of its top artists make an attempt at headline a show at the 20,000 seater capacity auditorium.

This has led to a wide discussion across social media platforms with many pointing out what could be the reason.

Although the opinions are diverse and scattered, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson popularly known as Bulldog infers greed is the reason for the inability of Ghanaian artists to attempt the venue.

According to the Artiste Manager and Head of Zylofon Music, Ghanaian artists could only achieve such feat “if and only if they’re unwilling to eat alone…”

Does that in any way imply Ghanaian artists are greedy and want all the spoils for themselves?

Having worked with a large number of Ghanaian artists including Shatta Wale, 5 Five, Ara B, Iwan, Bulldog could be speaking from a well informed angle and experience.

In a post on Facebook, Bulldog stated the “war” cannot be won until “the spoils of war” are shared together with “the soldiers on the battlefield”.

He, however, believes it is possible if all parties decide to win together.

Who could be the first Ghanaian artist to headline a show at the London 02 Arena?
