Why Shatta Wale fell out with Sarkodie

Not many people understood the fallout but it seems it had to do with money and betrayal as Shatta Wale saw it.

“They paid him like GH¢120,000 but we had agreed on $150,000 and this matter is from 4-5 years ago so when I heard it, I was like I spoke to this person a few days ago so I called him and I asked him, and he said, Yes, they’ve paid us good money but I told you they can pay more even in dollars,” he told Serwaa.
