The latest signee of Zylofon Media, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has opened up on his relationship with fellow dancehall artiste, Livingstone Etse Satekla, popularly called Stonebwoy.
The “Taking Over” hitmaker during his first performance as a Zylofon media artiste, according to Attractivemustapha.com, stopped singing and revealed that Stonebwoy was still his enemy.
Shatta Wale is reported to have said even though he has joined Stonebwoy as a fellow artiste under Zylofon Media, it does not make them friends.
He revealed that in the confines of Zylofon, Stonebwoy was his brother but if they stepped outside, he (Stonebwoy) was still considered his ‘arch-rival.’
Shatta Wale said he was going to take his work with Zylofon Media very seriously and ensure that the contract remains mutually beneficial.
The rapper said, "You see as I come here right now, I no say people go think d so how ego do Stonebwoy, you see Stonebwoy, for here e be my brother! For towne be my enemy! E be so we dey come do the thing e no be say play play thing."
Stonebwoy was however absent from the unveiling of his dancehall colleague, Shatta Wale due to the projects that he is engaged in outside the country.
Unconfirmed reports however, indicate that both award-winning dancehall acts were in contact with each other till the deal was finally done.
Multiple award-winning rapper, Sarkodie has sent his congratulatory message to Shatta Wale and CEO of Zylofon Media after their historic signing.
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have been perceived in the media as arch-rivals in the dancehall music genre in Ghana.
Their rivalry has been so highly patronized that both artistes have ended up giving each other nicknames.
Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah, refers to Stonebwoy as “Sergeant Lee” and Stonebwoy in turn calls Shatta Wale, “Corporal Nii”.
The two award-winning artistes however made headlines in Ghana and on social media when they shared the same stage in one performance at Stonebwoy’s “Ashiaman to the World” concert.
