He also revealed that the controversies are for business benefits which is raking in huge sums of money for him.
According to Wale, he is soft inside but his crazy and controversial side some people see and hate are all part of the show business.
“Any time I come on the radio or any time I’m live on Facebook doing something [or] talking about a particular topic, I say it in a way or manner that people will get the ‘Shatta spirit’, that is what people know about me… the reason why I say ‘Shatta spirit’ is that is how I get serious with my work,” Shatta Wale explained

“When you come there, [and I am in] my wellington boot and working gear and the way you see mud on me… I don’t think you’ll say I am dirty because that is the nature of the job.…this is an industry whereby when I speak my mind, they say I don’t respect, they say I’m bush, they say I am dirty…what I’m doing is fetching me some good cash,” Shatta Wale said.
Touching on his ceaseless attacks on the media, Shatta Wale explained that “I like acting” and that his attacks on the media are just for fun and not personal.
“…All what I’m doing on radio, on TV, and everywhere, it’s my work. It won’t stop if they want it to stop…” he stressed.
