- Shatta Wale says he feels sad that Samini is not rich as he expected him to be
- He said Samini allowed himself to be cheated in his hay days, and this also makes him sad
- Shatta Wale said at the time Samini was the reigning musician in Ghana, he failed to make money from his deals
Controversial Ghanaian musician Shatta Wale has said that he feels sad that when rich musicians are mentioned, Samini would come last.
He said Samini did not make good use of the opportunity he had when he was the reigning Ghanaian musician some years ago.
According to Shatta Wale, Samini simply allowed himself to be cheated, and this saddens him so much.
Shatta Wale made these remarks in an interview with Metro TV’s Paul Adom Okyere recently.
He said: “Samini was a legend, he tried to put Ghana on the map then, but he allowed himself to be used so much that he was not even aware."
To Shatta Wale, Samini is poor because he has not made much fortune as compared with himself.
Shatta Wale added that Samini was now aware that he has been used without him gaining anything.
The controversial musician had always touted himself as the richest musician in Ghana.
He was formerly of the brand name Bandana, but went off the music scene for a while, rebranded and became known as Shatta Wale.
It is also good to note that he became very popular following his feud with Samini and Kaakie at the 2012 Ghana Music Awards when he returned to the music scene.
Now, it seems Shatta Wale has become more popular than Samini, and richer, as he claims.
Meanwhile, Shatta Wale has revealed that Ghana needs a new government, not NPP or NDC.
He also trended in the news after he won the Artiste of the Year Award at the Ghana Music Awards UK 2019.
