Speaking in a wide-ranging interview on Accra-based Joy FM Friday morning, Shatta Wale said that Ghana's fastest rapper, Sarkodie, was no match for him because he (Sarkodie) even once begged to be produced.
In taking a dig at the 'Can't Let You Go' singer, Shatta Wale said Sarkodie was still in school when he (Shatta Wale) was doing music so he had be be accorded respect for his experience in the music industry.

In reacting to the 'Advice' song that was directed at him, Shatta Wale indicated that he was not going to reply the 'diss' song because he was a dancehall act and had no business 'beefing' a rapper.
He however challenged Sarkodie to buy a new car to prove he was rich because he had personally done so on his birthday as he released a Mercedes Benz with a customized license plate.
Shatta Wale said that he customized his cars to show that he owned them unlike many artistes in Ghana he knew where driving cars they had 'borrowed' from others.
The dancehall act when questioned about his spirituality, said he believed in God and was very sure that success only came from above. He however confessed to have used juju before but noted it did not give him what he was looking for.
