Controversial dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has described his colleagues in the music industry namely Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Samini as hypocrites ‘who are misleading their fans.’
“I don’t wanna fake my life. Because, I believe they’re faking and they’re blocking my shine and the way to get to where I want to get to.
“Because, the kind of attitude they’re showing to Ghanaians, it’s going to worry the next generation,” he said on Super Morning Show on Joy FM on Friday, October 26.
Their tweets, the way they relate to their fans, the kind of picture they want people to see, according to Shatta, smacks hypocrisy.
“Sarkodie is trying to tell people right now that when you’re an artiste and you have a car, you can’t even take a picture with it. And the first day Sarkodie will do that in Ghana will be his greatest mistake,” he said.
Sarkodie being a rapper, according to Shatta, he does not understand why he [Sarkodie] would want to be behave like a ‘surgical doctor,’ making him a big time hypocrite.
He said, Sarkodie is capable of taking little money to perform abroad but will reject same amount when he is requested to perform in Ghana.
Reponding to Sarkodie’s Advice song addressed to him [Shatta], he said: “I want Sarkodie to understand one thing that I’m a very dirty guy. I don’t watch parents, I don’t watch anybody. I can go all out! He shouldn’t come and give me advice. I have advised myself. He should advice himself with a car too and let me see.”
Shatta says if indeed Sarkodie claims ‘money no bi problem,’ he should buy himself a car and quit driving ‘for sale cars.’ “Till now, he’s not even bought himself a car. So, that should tell you if I say Ghanaian artistes are living hypocritical and a poor life, you should understand me.”
Shatta however stated that he is not going to reply to Sarkodie’s Advice song. “As a dancehall artiste, I’m not going to reply a rapper.”
Referring to him [Sarkodie] as ‘a boy’ and his junior in the music industry, Shatta said: “He has told me before that I should produce him, Bandana days, when he was suffering. So, I think he’s forgotten himself, he feels I’m his colleague now, he feels because I look younger than him now, because he behaves like he’s grown.”
Responding to a 2013 tweet when he indicated that Sarkodie was his ‘Guardian Angel’ he said, he tweeted that because he had developed some kind of love for him at the time. “I love Sarkodie’s talent,” he confessed.
