Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale says he works harder than BET Award-winning rapper, Sarkodie.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Tuesday, with Andy Dosty, Shatta said he was the most hardworking Ghanaian musician who also owns the biggest fan base in the country.
Shatta, who is set to release a new album in October, said Sarkodie and colleague dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy haven’t reaped enough from their music careers hence they should stop boasting during interviews and on their social media platforms.
When reminded by a panellist on the show, Prince Tsegah, that Sarkodie isn’t a braggart, Shatta Wale said it was so because he [Sarkordie] has nothing to boast of, adding that Sarkodie isn’t what Ghanaians perceive him to be.
“…he [Sarkodie] no get am. Don’t see him like that. You people are spoiling them [Sarkodie and Stonebwoy]. If he has it, he should prove it to motivate the youth. They want to see it. I am not scared,” he told Tsegah.
Shatta’s comments have angered Sarkodie’s fans (SarkNatives) who see Shatta’s attacks as disrespect for Sarkodie.
The fans believe Shatta Wale is riding on Sarkodie’s name to promote his next album, The Reign.
But Shatta Wale in a tweet debunked the perceptions, explaining that he is always bold to tell Sarkodie what he said on air hence they should keep mute.
“Hey @sarkodie fans behave kwraa cuz your boss when I meet him and I tell him these things everytime …so shut up and shut up ..You ppl deh kill his career .. Just shut up !!!!!! Sark wan ur fans ooo yoooo !!!!” he said.
