- A social media user has alleged that Shatta Wale has stolen a concept for his latest video
- According to the user, Shatta Wale took uncredited inspiration from an American movie
- Shatta Wale’s latest song, ‘Gringo’ has gained a lot of traction on social media ever since the release of its movie-themed music video
A social media user, in reacting to the hype that has been generated from Shatta Wale’s new music video, ‘Gringo’, has alleged that the musician plagiarized the concept of his much talked about music video.
The latest song to be released by Shatta Wale and his team at Zylofon Media has been touted as one of the most expensive music videos ever to be shot by a Ghanaian artiste.
However, a social media user, in responding to a post made by Charles Nii Armah Mensah on his Facebook wall indicated that the concept of the music video was from a movie called ‘A million ways to die in the West’.
The video which was shot in America saw the inclusion of many cowboys and was couched around a ‘hero-villian’ storyline.
The much anticipated video, after its release has garnered an impressive number of views on social media.
Reports have it that ‘Gringo’ has risen above Stonebowy’s ‘Tomorrow’ hit song which hitherto was the main talk of town.
Many fans and followers of Shatta Wale, including Kwaku Bonsam, have recorded videos of themselves either singing or dancing to the new song of the ‘Taking Over’ hit maker.
Shatta Wale has made waves on social media with his song and some people have accused him of going overboard with his ‘aggressive’ way of hyping the song.
These comments come on the heels of a post made by Shatta Wale on Twitter pleading with President Akufo-Addo to hashtag his song.
