- Shatta Wale has declared that he deserved the recongnition Stonebwoy received at the BET awards
- He says his beef with artistes like Samini are mainly for business purposes
Controversial Ghanaian musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, widely known as Shatta Wale has disclosed that he is the one who should have been awarded BET award and not Stonebwoy.
According to Shatta Wale, the BET selection team in Ghana got it all wrong by awarding the Bhim Nation president instead of him.
Speaking to Abeiku Santana on UTV’s ‘Atuu’ show, the dancehall artiste insisted that he doesn’t have any personal grudge with Stonebwoy but he is the biggest artiste in Ghana music by all standards.
The award-winning artiste maintained that his only problem with Stonebwoy is that he failed to acknowledge him as the rightful winner of the BET Award for Best African Act in 2015.
“He [Stonebwoy] knew deeply in his heart that the BET award was mine. I’m the biggest music act in the country and BET selection team in Ghana got it wrong,” Shatta Wale said.
Shatta Wale in his conversation articulated his profound respect for Samini, insisting that his rift with him was strictly for business purposes.
However, the SM boss expressed worry that Samini is not realizing that but rather chose to attack him at any given opportunity at interviews.
“Samini didn’t see the business side of the whole beef at that moment, but we’re exploring options of releasing a project together,” Wale said.
