Veteran rapper, Reggie Rockstone, has expressed disappointment over the way he is treated in the entertainment industry after his wife, Zilla Limann raised concerns about his omission from the list of participants of the November 10, 2021 meeting of celebrities and the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Dampare.
It was later revealed that industry personalities, Socrates Sarfo, A-Plus, and Abeiku Santana were in charge of invitations to the meeting.
According to Reggie Rockstone, who is widely regarded as the originator of hiplife music, he has not been accorded the recognition he deserves on the national level despite his high credentials in the country’s showbiz industry.
He cited an example of the 2008 National Honours, where over 200 personalities (including showbiz personalities) were awarded by the then-president John Agyekum Kufuor without his inclusion.
“Maybe they don’t rank me. You remember when President Kufuor gave everyone an award except me?” he asked.
On July 3, 2008, some 244 personalities from all walks of life were presented with national medals in various categories by President John Agyekum Kufuor at the National Honours.
