Singer, Shatta Wale Responds To Criticisms From Nigerians, Challenged To A Rap Battle
Ghanaian singer, Shatta Wale has responded to criticisms from Nigerians following his comments during a concert he held recently.
Recall that the reggae-dancehall singer threw shades at Nigerian musicians. 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*ck Nigerian artistes”.
In response, 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 labelled 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 apologise for this #hatespeech”
Singer, Mr 2Kay took a relaxed view to the rant, saying, “We go still come Ghana come flex NIGERIANS Lead others follow. Proudly Nigerian”
In response, Shatta Wale tweeted that Nigerians think they can always say what they want to say. He also said he can’t remember Nigerians promoting Ghanian artists in Nigeria.
