Shatta Wale has been blasted for being one of the most confused, inconsistent, and flippant artistes by Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, an entertainment analyst.
He made this observation while speaking as a panelist on the United Showbiz programme on UTV.
On Thursday, June 3, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported that Wale had advocated for a policy of 90% Ghanaian music on the Ghanaian airwaves to help the growth of the Ghanaian music industry.
Asamoah-Baidoo, however, is of the opinion that the Taking Over artiste is confused because he didn't support prior attempts by stakeholders along those lines. He questioned how serious Wale is about those ideas he shared.
"That's why I keep insisting he is one of the most confused and inconsistent artistes, and I will not move away from that," Asamoah-Baidoo said.
"In 2016, MUSIGA introduced the Play More GH initiative, Shatta Wale didn't support it. Instead, he was insulting Obour (then president of the association.) The idea was to promote the playing of Ghanaian music on Ghanaian airwaves. Policies like that exist in South Africa and Kenya."
He also cited a second example to buttress his point: "In 2017, George Britton, one of the people he enjoys insulting introduced the play 80% Ghanaian music on the airwaves. Did he support? He did not support it!"

In other news, MOGBeatz has responded to threats by Shatta Wale to harm him for allegations of non-payment for production services.
In early 2021, the music producer accused Shatta Wale of not paying for his contributions to his 2018 Reign album.
The accusation led to an exchange of words between the two online, and a threat of physical harm from the dancehall musician.
