The feud for supremacy in the Dancehall genre in Ghana between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy has taken a new twist as the two musicians have taken a swipe at each other in a game of name-calling.
Livingstone Etse Satekla, known for his stage name Stonebwoy has said that he would christen fellow Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale as “Corporal Nii” in the coming days.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Okay FM, the “people dey” hit maker indicated that he was going to outdoor Shatta Wale’s new name son because it was the name by which he (Shatta Wale) was referred to by his fans. He however indicated that the “outdooring ceremony” was going to take place only after Shatta Wale had come out to outdoor the “Sergeant Lee” name as attributed in his song.
Reacting to Stonebwoy’s statement, Shatta Wale called the former a ‘joker’ and would appreciate it if Stonebwoy gave him a better name instead. Shatta Wale even gave credit to the “Gbee Naabu” name given to him by musician Yaa Pono as being ‘a bit okay’ than the proposed ‘Corporal Nii’.
Speaking at an earlier interview also on Accra-based Okay FM with show host Abeiku Santana, Shatta Wale revealed that “Sergeant Lee” in his popular “Taking Over” song was no other than his industry rival, Stonebwoy. The self-acclaimed Dancehall king recounted how he infused the name into his hit song after Stonebwoy had said he was in a comfortable for an award only to lose out on it.
It has however being ascertained that in military terms, a Sergeant was of a higher rank than a Corporal. This revelation is an indication of the fact that Stonebwoy has belittled Shatta Wale with the new title and has shown who the supreme one is in Ghana’s Dancehall industry.
The coming days look bright as the rivalry between two of Ghana’s biggest acts brews.
