Kumasi-based Ghanaian musician, Flowking Stone, has touted Shatta Wale as a replica of former president Rawlings in terms of leadership.
According to the ‘Go Low’ singer, Shatta Wale is not bad as many people have made it look like.
But rather, he is someone who insists on the right thing to be done; thus becoming the Rawlings in the Ghana music industry.
Flowking Stone, born Kwaku Nsia Boamah, is also a younger brother to music legend Okyeame Kwame.
To him, Shatta Wale’s ranting and feud with other musicians is not a problem.
This is because he views it as a move to get people to do the right thing.
“I see Shatta Wale as a revolutionary leader like Rawlings who always seeks for the right thing to be done.”
“And it is normal for people to shout when they are angry so I don’t see any problem with his attitude,” Flowking Stone said.
He also noted that the ‘Taking Over’ hit maker makes it a point to resolve issues with his colleague musicians which is very commendable.
Jerry John Rawlings was the president of Ghana following a coup d’etat in 1979.
He justified his coup d’etat when he said things were not being done properly by the government he overthrew.
Many Ghanaians have hailed Rawlings for that action because they believe it led to massive improvement in Ghana’s governance system; especially in tackling corruption.
Likening Shatta Wale to Rawlings, Flowking Stone said since Shatta returned to the music since few years ago, he has been able to rejuvenate the industry and keep others on their toes.
Flowking Stone made these observations in an interview with mynewsgh.com
He won the hip-life song of the year at this year’s Ghana Music Awards.
For over a month now, the dancehall king has made the headlines.
He started a ‘fight’ with Nigerian superstar Wizkid which escalated to his own countrymen incluing Tic Tac and VVIP.
