Shatta Wale has chastised Ghanaian music industry players for always criticizing artistes severely.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., is a Ghanaian reggae-dancehall artist. He is known by his stage name Shatta Wale, formerly Bandana.
According to Shatta, the media has now termed such criticisms as ‘content’ but he believes an industry full of criticisms without highlighting positive stories of musicians can’t make it to Grammys.
Citing an example of how Ghanaian showbiz pundits don’t spare him, Shatta Wale in the video below said;
“Are we ok? Burna Boy that is there, he smokes wee and things, make Shatta, me make I smoke wee small then they will go like as for Shatta when he smokes the weed …”
Ghanaian music lovers took social media to express disappointment over why no Ghanaian act made it to the Grammys like Nigeria’s Burna Boy and Wizkid who emerged as first-time winners of the prestigious award.
“Badman e b five f***kin house wey man build for East Legon, e no be play my nigga. See my Grammys is my properties because in this industry there’s no way that they will help push artiste to got the Grammys”.
