Charles Nii Arman Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has thrown a subtle jab at his arch-rival, Stonebwoy over reports that he was blocking some fans who commented ‘Gringo’ on his social media handles.
Some fans of Shatta Wale are reported to have taken to the social media handle of Stonebwoy and ‘sprayed’ his timeline with hashtags of ‘Gringo’. However, Stonebwoy who did not take lightly to this act, started blocking ‘culprits’.
In response to the allegations that have been made, Shatta Wale took to his Facebook page to tease his dancehall rival.
He posted on his wall, “Artiste that are blocking people becuz of the truth will end up blocking their career ..pls stop it and let’s #Gringo.”
In just a few days after its release, Shatta Wale’s ‘Gringo’ rose above Stonebwoy’s ‘Tomorrow’ in terms of page views on YouTube.
The music video has also been touted as one of the most expensive music videos ever to be shot by a Ghanaian artiste.
The music video which was modeled like a movie featured Bulldog and a number of foreigners.
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’ hitmaker.
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.
However, some social media users have alleged that Shatta Wale ‘plagiarized’ the concept of his music video from an American Movie titled, “A million ways to die in the West.”
Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy who are both artistes of entertainment giants, Zylofon Media, are noted to be ‘sworn enemies’ in the dancehall genre.
