Legendary Ghanaian rapper, Michael Elliot Kwabena Okyere Darko, widely known as Obrafour has opened up for the first time about recent comments made by self-acclaimed dancehall king, Shatta Wale against him and some other Ghanaian musicians.
According to Obrafour, dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale doesn’t have any proper training in terms of communications.
Shatta Wale recently opened fire on some Ghanaians musicians including Obrafour, VVIP, Tic Tac and others, describing them as ‘broke’ artistes who are jealous of his success.
However, the ‘Rap Priest’ speaking on Happy FM in Accra disclosed that he is not the kind of person who is affected by negative comments by others.
“Recently Shatta wale was seen on stage saying we the old artists didn’t do anything to help the industry and a whole lot, but me what I know of myself is that I’m not that kind of person who is affected or moved by negative words, because all the time I read it in a good way", he said.
Obrafour in his conversation maintained that he was not worried about comments made by Shatta because, “as we all know, he [Wale] hasn’t got that kind of training in terms of how to communicate properly. Shatta Wale has no training.”
The veteran rapper added that, “Shatta wanted to say something. I believe what he wanted to say was that we the seniors that started were taken advantage of, as I always say but today you cannot take any advantage of Shatta Wale, he will not allow you to take advantage of him at your event without paying him".
Obrafour further said, “When it comes to money and properties, we all have it”.
Therefore Shatta Wale’s comment provoked him to post a quotation (Jeremiah 9: 23-24) on his Facebook page.
