A Nigerian journalist has thrown his support behind Shatta Wale for saying Nigerian musician are refusing to promote Ghanaians musicians, unlike the other way around.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., well known as Shatta Wale, has been in the news after his Freedom Wave Concert on December 25, over a comment he made against Nigerian artists on the night.
The Shatta Movement boss on his Freedom Wave Concert slammed Nigerian artists by using “F” words on them for not supporting Ghanaian artists after filling the Accra Sports Stadium.
According to him, Nigerian artists always pass through Ghana before they can blow because Ghanaians support them, but as for him, he doesn’t need Nigerians or any help from them.
The likes of Nigerian actor Yul Edochie has even advised the self-acclaimed African dancehall king to apologize to Nigerians over his statement, which he sees as a hate speech.
As many disagreed with the dancehall artist, some are also supporting his claims.
According to a Nigerian journalist in a new video sighted by Kingaziz.com, he supports what Shatta said aside his “F” words because Nigerian musicians are gaining a lot from Ghana, but Ghanaian musicians have gained less.

He is not the only Nigerian supporting Wale for his claim, but Chinedu Okoli, better known by his stage name Flavour N’abania or simply Flavour also confirmed what Shatta is saying.
Flavour in a video was lamenting on how Nigerians are refusing to support Artists from other African countries.
He went ahead to use Tanzania artist Naseeb Abdul Juma Issack, popularly known by his stage name Diamond Platnumz, as example by saying he has numbers on YouTube than any Nigerian artist despite their population, but it’s hardly to hear his songs in Nigeria.
