Ghana’s hottest ‘commodity’ in music currently, Shatta Wale, has advised new sensation Ebony to pray without stopping in order to win the 2017 Ghana Music Awards’ Artist of the Year accolade.
According to Shatta Wale, if his pending case against the award organisers is settled, there is no way Ebony will be crowned artist of the year despite her incredible hard work in the year under review.
Ebony started 2017 with hit song Kupe, before she released Sponsor, Date your Fada and Maame Hwe, which is doing very well in the new year.
“Ebony is my girl and I really love her and what she is doing but as for the artiste of the year, unless they don’t nominate me,” Shatta told Okay FM. “It will be the only reason before she can win. So she should just pray they don’t nominate me,” he added.
Shatta Wale beat Ebony to win the People’s Celebrity Award artiste of the year in 2017 last month, with his hit songs, Taking Over, Forgetti, Ayoo, Hossana, Umbrella and Freedom.
Shatta won the 2014 edition of the VGMA but has since been ban from the event following a feud between him and the organisers, resulting into verbal attacks.
