Following his highly patronized Freedom Wave Concert on Christmas Day, Shatta Wale has defended his utterances against Nigerian artistes and the Ghana Music Industry.
He slammed Nigerian artistes revealing that his country had always supported them into relevance and that they all had to come pay obeisance to Ghana before gaining global exposure.
This comes shortly after Nigerian entertainers reacted to his earlier comment about selling out a Ghanaian stadium without the help of Nigerian artistes.
The singer revealed he had been told he wouldn’t be able to pull such a huge crowd without Nigerian artists on the bill.
He said, “They said I won’t be able to fill my own stadiums, I don’t need any Nigerian artiste to sell out Ghana’s stadium, f**k Nigerian artistes.”
The comments quickly became talking points on social media.
Popular DJ, BigN, who reshared the insulting video said, “My dear shattawalenima I watched this video more than once. I tried to see your point. We are not the enemy.
You can’t blatantly say “FxxK Nigerians” and think there won’t be any repercussions. We are not to blame that you are a local champion.
“Stop this bickering and talk true, Naija man don collect your babe again abi?” he asked in Pidgin English.
Comedian, Ushbebe labeled Shatta Wale’s rant, “Useless talk … I no even expect more from am.”
For actor, IK Ogbonna, the dancehall singer’s rant is simply hate speech against the Nigerian people and demanded an apology.
He said, “Mr. Shattawalenima, you are a total and complete disappointment. In a time where we should be growing together and helping each other through creative collaborations.
You should appreciate the Nigerian artiste because a win for any Nigerian artiste is a win for Africa. How do you promote unity with utterances like this? This is very weak from you. Deal with your complex issues and grow up.
As an artist, I have featured in a few Ghana movies and I have also worked with amazing, adorable Ghanaians here in Nigeria. You should totally apologize for this #hatespeech”
In response to their reaction, the rapper took to his Twitter page on Monday morning to slam Nigerians, asking them to appreciate Ghana for helping their artistes.
He wrote, “As for Nigerians, they think they can always say what they want to say. F**k your talks. Y’all who think I spoke the truth, I don’t even remember you guys promoting Ghanaian artiste in your country. Until you guys will realise your artiste ‘blew’ in Ghana to say thank you.
“Bring it on and your artiste won’t get that hype they get from Ghana. I can make that stop. Don’t dare me.
“It’s the truth ,your artistes come here for numbers before the world can recognise them. Appreciate Ghana supporting your artiste and stop this foolishness.”
“I won’t follow your artiste like some of my colleagues. If you do, I go wash your face with your own shame. Be thankful to Ghana for supporting your artiste and stop talking trash on here.
“Stop talking if we sing good music. Kwasia can’t you see what KiDi is doing. Foolish talks and foolish comments. Learn to say thank you. Ghana is your gateway.
“Your artistes know what they get from here. I don’t have anything to come take from Nigeria to make me famous and make me some good cash”.
His words have since been met with mixed reactions with majority of nrtizens labeling it as the bitter truth although Nigerians might not agree.
