Ghanaian dancehall artist Charles Armah Mensah, better known as Shatta Wale, has praised Nigerian singers’ achievements and growth.
According to Citi News, when celebrating fast-rising Nigerian artiste, Asake, who sold out the 20,000-capacity 02 Arena in London, United Kingdom, over the weekend, the singer stated that the successes of Nigerian singers eclipsed those of their Ghanaian counterparts.
Shatta Wale remarked in a Twitter post that Nigerians are winning big time, making Ghana’s music industry look like a feeding bottle as compared to a Hennessy bottle.
“Nigerians [artistes] are making
Ghana music look like feeding bottle compared to Hennessy bottle. Congrats to Asake meeenn!!!
“You guys deh run too fast…F*ck
“PS: Some Ghana man say how do they do it?
“Me: when you stop judging people here like you are angels, I think we can get the formula.
“Naija is winning BIG TIME !!! My people.”
In other events, the sister of Rebecca Ikumelo, a 33-year-old fan who sadly died after being injured during a crowd crush outside London’s Brixton Academy during Asake’s show, has expressed her displeasure with the artist utilising Rebecca’s image without consulting the family.
During a recent show at the 02 Arena, Asake paid respect to those who died at Brixton Academy last year in December 2022.
In response to the singer’s homage, Racheal stated that it was improper and that she hoped he had spoken to them earlier.
