Dancehall King, Shatta Wale has charged at critics who attribute his popularity to the many controversies he has been involved in since his rebranding from Bandana.
Shatta Wale burst onto the music scene around 2004 as Bandana with his hit track, 'Moko Hoo' which featured Tinny.
However, after releasing his 'No Problem' album in 2005, he faded and not much was heard of him until 2013 when he resurfaced as Shatta Wale.
Since that time, he has steadily grown to become, arguably, the biggest artiste in Ghana and the most controversial.
His many controversies includes disagreements with event organisers like Charter House, fellow artistes like Samini and his most recent beef with Nigerian singer, WizKid has led many critics to label his current success as controversy-based.
But in a Facebook post over weekend Shatta Wale has used recent statistics from google on the most searched Ghanaian songs to remind his critics that he has got to where he is because of his music and not controversies.
On the list of most searched Ghanaian songs in South Africa and the UK, he placed second and third with Taking Over and Ayoo respectively. Patapaa's 'One Corner' came first.

In Tanzania, Shatta Wale's Ayoo emerged as the fourth most googled West African song beating WizKid's 'come Closer'.
This, Shatta Wale believed was enough proof that he was a force to be reckoned with and he patted himself on the back.
"Herrrrr shatta you try ,if this #deadustry wont appreciate and tell me ,i will tell myself again #ITRY ....So nobody should come commenting and asking if it’s controversy that got me here ...Ask you can see with your blind eyes ..ITS MY FUCKEN MUSIC that got me here ...Ghana music industry mu kasa and you ppl just be 2%..You kno chaw pass Ghana population so how can you control the world .Internet no deh lie go chk.. #champioooooooon", he posted.
