Popular Ghanaian actress, Juliet Ibrahim has stated that music of Ghanaian artiste, Shatta Wale is not popular in Nigeria and Sarkordie Becca and Stonebwoy are the only Ghanaian artistes whose songs have massive rotation on Nigeria radio.
According to PeaceFmonline, Juliet Ibrahim made this known in an interview on Hitz FM with Andy Dosty. She also informed the host that, King Promise also enjoys some support from Ghana’s neighbours.
This comes after Shatta Wale claims of being the king of the music genre.
Many believe Wale’s recent ‘beef’ with WizKid is his attempt to ‘invade’ the Nigerian music market.
Shatta Wale had in an interview on Kasapa FM, said he doesn’t consider Nigerian artiste, Wizkid as a super star. He added that there is nothing extraordinary about the ‘Ojuelegba‘ act.
“People don’t have that mind to elevate themselves that is why nowadays people see Wizkid and say wow he’s a star. I don’t see Wizkid to be too much for me but Ghanaians see him like that and artistes also see him like that. I will not see Wizkid and be stunned, I rather want him to see me and be amazed because properties and investments are talking.”
“Don’t be wearing fake chains and tell me you’re number one artiste in Africa because I don’t get scared with those things. That’s why when I preach about making money in the music business, I say it and say it well for people to see that this is no joke thing.”
His comments led to severe backlash from Nigerians on Twitter.
He later threatened to end the career of Nigerian artiste, Wizkid if the latter doesn’t warn his “uneducated fans.” The warning comes after Wale’s comments about WizKid not being a Superstar infuriated Nigerians, especially on Twitter.
