Ghanian Dance hall artiste, Shatta Wale made several comments in which he challenged Wizkid and claimed that he does not see Wiz as a superstar. The action of the Ghanaian star caused Nigerians to troll him on social media.
Following the backlash that ensued his comments, the dance hall artiste has reacted with several social media posts in which he mocked Nigerians. His latest reaction is captured in a video that surfaced on the internet. In the video, the singer hurled more insults at the Starboy and the Nigerian music industry, while also mocking Nigerians with the claim that the Nigerian President is always travelling and never found on duty.
From the video, it can be deduced that Shatta Wale appears to be calling for respect for the Ghanaian artistes. His comments suggests that he is advocating for Ghanaian artistes to be accorded the same level of respect as Nigerian music stars like Wizkid, but Shatta Wale’s approach comes off as offensive and it is expected to rile up Nigerian fans especially.
“I don’t see Wizkid to be too much for me but most of my Ghanaians and Ghanaian colleagues see him like that. But i want Wizkid to see me and be like wow not otherwise because what is talking is your pocket, property, investment.
“I will not see Wizkid and be stunned, I rather want him to see me and be amazed because I don’t see anything extraordinary about him, even though he claims to the best African artiste…”
“Don’t come and wear a chain which is fake and come and say we the biggest artistes in Africa ,we are number 1. I don’t get scared of those things, making money in music is no joke thing my business is making money for me.
“My colleagues are really working hard like May weather, Christiano ronaldo dont think my colleagues are Ghanaian of Nigerian artistes.”
This earned him lots of backlash from loyal Wizkid fans and Nigerians which apparently this didn’t sit well with Shatta as he has taken to Twitter to issue a stern warning to Wizkid while tagging the starboy so he doesn’t miss it.
“But Naija wassup, me abi different guy ooo dont let me spark.. Your @wizkidayo sef knows what am talking about ..so shut f**k up” He tweeted.
Will Wizkid respond to this? Let’s wait and see and this plays out.
