Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has a wide reach of his only in the confides of Ghana and maybe other African coutries but not Nigeria.
According to Ghanaweb, Ghanian actress Juliet Ibrahim speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, said; Wale hardly gets any airplay on Nigerian radio. Sarkodie, Becca and Stonebwoy are the only Ghanaian artistes whose songs have massive rotation on Nigeria radio.
according to the actress, award-winning Ghanaian artiste, King Promise also enjoys some support from Ghana’s neighbours.
Many believe Wale’s recent ‘beef’ with WizKid is his attempt to ‘invade’ the Nigerian music market.
Last year, Wale in an interview on Kasapa FM said he doesn’t consider Nigerian artiste, Wizkid as a super star. He added that there is nothing extraordinary about the ‘Ojuelegba‘ act.
“People don’t have that mind to elevate themselves that is why nowadays people see Wizkid and say wow he’s a star. I don’t see Wizkid to be too much for me but Ghanaians see him like that and artistes also see him like that. I will not see Wizkid and be stunned, I rather want him to see me and be amazed because properties and investments are talking,” explained Wale on Kasapa FM.
“Don’t be wearing fake chains and tell me you’re number one artiste in Africa because I don’t get scared with those things. That’s why when I preach about making money in the music business, I say it and say it well for people to see that this is no joke thing.”
His comments led to severe backlash from Nigerians on Twitter.
