Ghanaian rapper Shatta Wale blasts Nigerians, gets instant response
Ghanaian reggae-dancehall artist and rapper, Shatta Wale, has slammed Nigerian artistes and Nigerians again.
The rapper, who has beef with a number of Nigerian artistes, initially tweeted about selling out a Ghanaian stadium without the help of Nigerian artistes.
He wrote: “They said I won’t be able to fill my own stadiums, I don’t need any Nigerian artiste to sell out Ghana’s stadium, f**k Nigerian artistes.”
His tweet led to Nigerians attacking him and he took to Twitter this morning, Dec. 27, to slam Nigerians.
He tweeted: “As for Nigerians, they think they can always say what they want to say. F**k your talks. Y’all who think I spoke the truth, I don’t even remember you guys promoting Ghanaian artiste in your country. Until you guys will realise your artiste ‘blew’ in Ghana to say thank you.
“Bring it on and your artiste won’t get that hype they get from Ghana. I can make that stop. Don’t dare me.
“It’s the truth, your artistes come here for numbers before the world can recognise them. Appreciate Ghana supporting your artiste and stop this foolishness.
“I won’t follow your artiste like some of my colleagues. If you do, I go wash your face with your own shame. Be thankful to Ghana for supporting your artiste and stop talking trash on here.
“No one can tell me anything. Fuck all of you; because your thinking is not my thinking. Appreciate Ghana. period.
“Stop talking if we sing good music. Kwasia can’t you see what KiDi is doing. Foolish talks and foolish comments. Learn to say thank you. Ghana is your gateway.
“Your artistes know what they get from here. I don’t have anything to come take from Nigeria to make me famous and make me some good cash.”

He said, “Mr Shattawalenima, you are a total and complete disappointment. In a time where we should be growing together and helping each other through creative collaborations. You should appreciate the Nigerian artiste because a win for any Nigerian artiste is a win for Africa. How do you promote unity with utterances like this? This is very weak from you. Deal with your complex issues and grow up. As an artist, I have featured in a few Ghana movies and I have also worked with amazing, adorable Ghanaians here in Nigeria. You should totally apologise for this #hatespeech”
