Popular Ghanaian musician Shatta Wale aired his grievances, taking aim at fellow artists Sarkodie and Stonebwoy while also addressing what he sees as unfair criticism directed towards him.
The controversy began when Shatta Wale clashed with journalist Olele Salvador, leading to a heated exchange. This dispute appears to have triggered Shatta Wale's social media rant.
In his tweets, Shatta Wale voiced his frustration, alleging that he receives a large amount of criticism compared to his peers, Sarkodie and Stonebwoy. He argued that these two artists are often portrayed as saints despite their own controversial actions.
Shatta Wale pointed to past incidents involving Sarkodie and Stonebwoy to support his claims. He cited Stonebwoy's infamous 2019 incident at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), where Stonebwoy brandished a gun on stage during a brawl. Shatta Wale indicated that such behaviour is not something he would ever engage in.
