On Saturday, 24 September 2022, Stonebwoy, Gyakie and Sarkodie topped the trends after bringing the house down at the Global Citizen Festival at the Black Star Square. While many applauded the Ghanaian acts for making the nation proud, others wondered why Shatta Wale was left out of the bill as the star is known for his outstanding stage performances.
Speaking to Mercury Quaye Hitz FM's drive-time show, Cruise Control, co-host U Say Wetin revealed he had done some digging and knew the reason. He stated that the Global Citizen Festival had wanted Shatta Wale to perform after doing thorough research on the big names in the Ghanaian music scene. However, some of the industry persons they spoke to prevented that from happening.
In a video shared on Hitz FM's social media pages and sighted by YEN.com.gh, U Say Wetin was captured saying;
Gatekeepers shut the gate on Shatta Wale.
