Musician Edwin Kwame Ohene Darko popularly known as Pope Skinny or AsuodenGod, has indicated that Beyonce and Shatta Wale’s Already video is fake.
While speaking in a self-recorded video, Pope Skinny stated emphatically the Already video which is currently trending all over the world is not real.
Making a case for his claims, Pope Skinny said that the part of the video that had some dancers performing while painted in green was Dancegod Lloyd’s crew.
According to Pope Skinny, Dancegod Lloyd was not in America nor had he travelled to the North American country making the video fake.
Again, the Hot Cake crooner said Beyonce was never in Ghana but rather, it was the mother of the American star who came to Ghana in December 2019 in line with The Year Of Return initiative.
According to the AsuodenGod, the viral photo of Beyonce posing with Shatta Wale was also fake adding that it was all edited.
He made comparisons of the video as being the same as when the movie Black Panther was shot outside Africa yet was portrayed to have been done in Africa.
Still trying to make a point, Pope SKinny said that Shatta Wale had not even for once met with Beyonce because he was in America at the same as Shatta Wale and they spent the night in the same hotel.
Pope Skinny went ahead to admonish Shatta Wale to tell his fans the truth about the whole issue by tweeting about it.
He added that Shatta Wale should rally Ghanaians on social media behind him so that together, netizens can petition Beyonce for not treating Shatta Wale with respect.
Pope Skinny then rather gave credit to Stonebwoy for flying to America to meet with and record a song with songwriter and singer Keri Hilson.
The Wa Shatta Me singer said the music video for Gringo was real because he was part of the team that flew out of the country to shoot it. He stated that he could not however say the same about Already.
Pope Skinny said even though he still liked Shatta Wale, the dancehall star had turned him (Pope Skinny) into an enemy, drawing a comparison between God and Satan.
Highlighting the good bits, however, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghana's Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has congratulated dancehall star Shatta Wale on his remarkable feat of linking up with American star Beyonce on the Already project.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Mr Oppong Nkrumah took to his official Twitter handle to commend Shatta Wale after American singer, Beyonce released visuals of their ‘Already’ song.
