Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, has responded to some allegations leveled against him by his industry colleague and fellow dancehall act, Samini in relation to his 'Reign' album launch.
Shatta Wale, in responding to claims made by Samini about how they (Samini and Stonebwoy) were prevented from performing at the 'Reign' album launch held in Accra on Saturday, October 13.
According to Shatta Wale, he was not aware of the fact that Stonebwoy and Samini were at the Fantasy Dome and apologized to his colleagues for the inconvenience.
Samini, who made the allegation, took to his Twitter handle to bemoan the treatment meted out to him by an industry colleague after he had congratulated Shatta Wale on his album launch.
The post he made on Twitter read, "Congrats @shattawalegh on your album launch.just like you once wanted to surprise me on saminifest stage and I let you, I’d wanted to do the same but I waited in the car together with @stonebwoyb for over an hour only to be told you refused the gesture. #supportourown huh??
In replying to the tweet, Shatta Wale wrote, "Oh ! ,how , this is news to me .. sorry if this was da case ... am very very sorry .. it wld hv bn nice !!! thnx for da support #TheReigAlbum."
Samini went on to indicate that he was disturbed by the turn of events because according to him, his act was to support our own Ghanaian acts.
There were rumors that Samini and Stonebwoy were at the Fantasy Dome to surprise Shatta Wale by performing on the same stage with him as he (Shatta Wale) did during Samini's 'Saminifest' and Stonebwoy's 'Ashaiman to the World' concert.
It is yet to be ascertained whether Shatta Wale did really turn down the gesture from his two colleagues or it was sanctioned by a third party.
Some reports have come out and have alleged that Bulldog was behind the issue involving the other dancehall acts.
However, in an interview prior to the album launch, Shatta Wale revealed that he was going to welcome performances from industry colleagues during the album launch.
The launch of Shatta Wale’s latest album, 'Reign' came with a lot of surprises that only the dancehall musician can explain.
The night saw the 'Ayoo' hit maker thrill a packed audience and finally reconciled with Michy on stage.
In what was a surprise appearance, Michy showed up on stage to perform together with her once long-time fiancé.
However, the album launch presented the perfect opportunity for them to put everything behind them and to reconcile.
Shatta Wale openly proposed to Shatta Michy on stage, before the couple later shared a passionate kiss which obviously excited the crowd.
The ‘Reign’ concert and album launch was held, Saturday, at the Fantasy Dome. The event attracted thousands of music enthusiasts and fans.
Aside Shatta Wale and Michy, The Militants, Xylo, Smokey Beatz and Efe Keyz were among artistes who graced the stage.
