Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, known in real life as Charles Nii Armah Mensah has for a while now been parising inhabitants of Kasoa, a Suburb in the Central region of Ghana.
The “Ayoo” hit maker in a number of Facebook posts mentioned Kasoa. He has even recorded a song with the title “Kasoa”.
It is believed that the self-acclaimed king of Dancehall is mentioning Kasoa for a reason.
It has been alleged that the manager of rapper Yaa Pono was slap on stage by some angry fans when his artiste was performing his track he made in retaliation to Shatta Wale titled “Gbee Nabu”.
It was alleged that some fans of Shatta Wale woarned Yaa Pono and his team not to perform the “diss” track that was targeted at taking a swipe at Shatta Wale but Yaa Pono’s team ignored the warnings and went ahead to allow the artiste to perform the song.
As a result, some fans believed to be ardent fans of Shatta Wale mounted the stage on which the artiste and his team were performing on and reportedly slapped Yaa Pono’s manager.
The performance was believed to have taken place in Kasoa.
When news broke that some people had manhandled the manager of the Ashiaman-based rapper, Yaa Pono, Shatta Wale took to his Facebook wall to praise his fans in Kasoa. He called them loyal and recorded a song in their honor.
Shatta Wale and Yaa Pono earlier this year recorded songs to “diss” each other. Yaa Pono’s song “Gbee Nabu” seemed to have trended on social media more than the track Shatta Wale made.
If the reports coming are true, are Shatta Wale’s posts in anyway preaching and encouraging violence among musicians and the music industry?
Here are the posts the dancehall artiste made:
This is his song that he has titled "Kasoa".
