The conspicuous absence of Shatta Wale from the list and subsequent post on Facebook by Bullet that some artistes were 'hypocrites' for demanding for money in order perform led to some social media bashing for the Dancehall King though Bullet did not mention any name.

Many of the social media users had connected the fact that Shatta Wale cried at Ebony's one-week observance and Bullet's use of 'hypocrites' to infer that it was Shatta Wale.

But in an interview on Peace FM's Entertainment Review on Saturday, Shatta denied ever being contacted about the concert.

Speaking in a telephone interview, Shatta Wale wondered what useful thing the concert was going to bring other than enriching the organisers.

Though Ruff Town Records have explained that proceeds will go into a foundation they have started in Ebony's honour, Shatta maintained that it was useless adding that they wanted to find a cheap way of making money off her death.
