Ghanaian artiste Charles Nii Armah Mensah known in showbiz as Shatta Wale has ‘blamed’ Sarkodie for being disrespected by some Nigerian artistes at the One Africa Music Festival.
Shatta Wale who has recently taken up a campaign against Nigeria’s music invasion into Ghana, tweeted that Sarkodie allowed himself to be despised at the concert.
“Sarkodie doesn’t listen, it’s high time u respect your brand bro… they using you too much…don’t vex for the truth ..Respek.,” he tweeted.
His statement was a reply to Sarkodie’s tweet explaining to Shatta Wale why he did not mount the stage after the seeming sabotage by the Nigerian artiste.
“Nii wo kasa dodo lol agoro wo wani so … nobody plays with my brand and that be why we no step on that stage … I just feel for the fans that b why I tweet … you know me gyae ruff lol,” Sarkodie has earlier tweeted.
Sarkodie declined to perform at the One Africa Music Festival which was held in Dubai yesterday 16th November, 2017 because he felt disrespected by some Nigerian artistes.
Reports have it that Sarkodie was told that he would perform after Tiwa Savage, only to see Wizkid join Tiwa on stage when it has not been announced he was the next act. Then the organisers informed Sarkodie he would perform after Tekno. But again, Davido also joined Tekno on stage unannounced.
The host, Banky W, mentioned that Sarkodie was coming up next, just to have been told again that Davido was coming on stage.
George Mensah Britton, a Ghanaian blogger who also went to the festival gave his account on Facebook.
“When Sark was just about hitting the stage, Davido’s guy attacked Black Nana by pushing him to the floor to allow Davido perform. Ugly scenes. Slaps, blows, police arrest etc,” he wrote.
Recently ‘Dance hall King’ Shatta Wale has been waging a war against Nigerian artistes for invading the Ghanaian music industry and disrespecting the Ghanaian artiste.
Shatta Wale who had said on Accra-based Kasapa FM that he did not regard Nigerian artiste Wizkid as a superstar, was attacked by fans of Wizkid on social media – and that birthed his recent attack on the Nigerians.
Even though it is not clear why the Nigerian artistes obstructed Sarkodie from performing at the One Africa Music Festival, some have said they may have done that in solidarity of a revenge to Shatta Wale’s recent attack on Nigerian artistes.
