- Shatta Wale has hit hard at radio station Joy FM over ‘unprofessional’ comments following the death of artiste Ebony
- He called out the management of the station for disrespecting the death of the artiste by making unnecessary comparisons about their music
Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as dancehall ‘king’ Shatta Wale, has hit hard the Multimedia Group radio station, Joy FM.
In the wake of the tragic death of dancehall diva Ebony, Joy FM interviewed some panelists to discuss her death and prospects of winning any VGMAs posthumously.
However, one paneslist’s comments about the ‘worry’ from Shatta’s camp over the probability that Ebony would have swept all the awards at the ceremony later this year, while he (Shatta Wale) would have been left with no wins struck a chord with the artiste.
Shatta Wale, known to never stay silent about any wrong words thrown at him, posted a video on social media where he lambasted the radio station and all who work for and manage it for their unprofessionalism.
YEN.com.gh sighted a video posted by Twitter account @irepghana, in which Shatta Wale fumed that Ebony had just died and her body had not even been retrieved by her family, but Joy FM decided to make comparisons over their music and their chances at this years VGMAs, while the country was mourning.
The dancehall guru did not mince words as he criticized the station’s lack of professionalism and their reportage of the tragedy.
Ebony, born Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, was killed in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway after returning from a visit.
Her childhood friend and assistant, Franky Kuri, and their bodyguard also did not survive the crash.
Ebony’s death has left Ghanaians both home and abroad shocked, as the dancehall diva was a favorite artiste because of her back to back hits in 2017.
Many celebrities have expressed sadness at the loss of one Ghana’s bright lights, who will be mourned for a long time.
