Ghanaian musician, Emmanuel Andrews Samini, known by his stage name as Samini, has disclosed that it would have been unwise for him to jump to the defense of Shatta Wale, against Nigerian musician, Wizkid in their recent ‘fight’.
A report put up by zionfelix.net, quoted Samini to have said it was totally unnecessary for Shatta Wale to mount unwarranted attacks on the Nigerian ‘Starboy’, Wizkid.
Speaking on Radio Universe in Accra, Samini revealed that he had no idea what provoked Shatta Wale to attack Wizkid in his interview.
Therefore, he was not in the position to join the ‘fight’ when he [Shatta] invited him in a tweet to help him ‘fight’ the Nigerian.
"You can’t tweet at me and ask me to help you to insult some Nigerians because they’ve made certain claims about you. First of all, I don’t know what started that beef so I can’t follow you to go and insult any Nigerian. And that is how all the controversy started,” Samini said.
The self-acclaimed dancehall king had called on his fellow Ghanaian artistes to help him fight the influx of Nigerian music in Ghana, after he incurred the wrath of Wizkid’s fans on social media.
Shatta Wale in a tweet allegedly mentioned Samini’s handle; inviting him to join in the fight.
However, Samini rather turned the ‘heat’ on him for his unjustified attacks on Wizkid which caused a huge stir on various social media platforms.
“Why should we come together and fight an artiste you said he’s not a superstar? - If his fans are angry and have started a fight with you, you can’t tweet me and expect me to help you insult them back,” Samini said.
Shatta Wale in a recent interview categorically stated that he does not recognize Nigeria’s Wizkid as a ‘Superstar’, in the way his fellow artistes in Ghana regard him.
