Shatta Wale has been trending for some time now.
He has been in the news for one reason or another.
The Ghana dancehall king has been heavily criticized by some music lovers for attacking Wizkid and other Nigerian musicians.
Tic Tac and Reggie of VVIP waded into the ‘Shatta-Naija’ feud and this has angered the ‘Ayoo’ hit maker.
In a Facebook live chat, Shatta Wale revealed that he enjoys ‘attacking’ other musician because it is a way to stay in the music business.
Therefore his attack on Wizkid, Timaya and Patoranking was a strategy to get his name in the Nigeria music industry.
He dismissed rumours that he wanted to have a physical clash with the Nigerian artistes.
According to him, most Ghanaian musicians are not smart enough to understand that ‘beefing’ is a serious business in music.
“They keep saying Nigeria’s population is huge but they don’t know that one must use a strategy to penetrate into their [Nigeria’s] music industry,” he said.
Shatta Wale boasted that his attack on Wizkid has earned him a name in Nigeria’s music industry because he is currently trending in that country.
He also took a swipe at Tic Tac and VVIP music describing them poor, archaic and ones lacking common sense.
Shatta Wale’s ‘hot’ comments come in the wake of Tic Tac calling on the Ghana Police to arrest him for firing a gun in public.
Tic Tac also trolled the Dancehall King after he was awarded GH₵300,000 in a legal suit against Melcom.
In reacting to these comments and more, Shatta Wale says he is being hated because of his hard work and riches.
He described Tic Tac’s GH₵300,000 damage as a peanut because he Shatta could acquire that sum by performing in just two shows.
He revealed further that he was happy for Tic Tac because that was the first time ever he had received such an amount since the ‘Philomina’ hit maker started music.
He stated that Tic Tac and Reggie Rockstone cannot compare themselves with him because he is highly educated and wealthier than them.
Shatta Wale warned that those two artistes will continue to wallow in poverty if they don’t change from their ‘Pull him down’ character and acquire common sense.
“They lack common sense and that is why I am telling them to go to the library and acquire it,” Shatta Wale said.
Shatta Wale further called on Ghanaian DJs to support their own by promoting Ghanaian music.
