Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah, has given Nigerians the upper arm after he decided to be called an afrobeat musician hence given his gratitude to the green land singers.
Yesterday, Shatta Wale indicated that since Ghana doesn’t have the genre identity to trade within the international market, he has decided to flow with the Nigerians.
He emphasized that since labeling himself as an Afrobeat will help him secure the bag of money, he’s better of joining them than waiting on Ghana music folks who don’t have an identity to sell the country.
He made this known on his Snapchat after Spotify made him the face of an Afrobeat playlist on the streaming platform.
Nigerian after seeing his assertion swiftly reacted to it check some reactions below…
That is why we are the giant of Africa. If giant stand, you go see dwarf? Nigeria to the world jare
That’s the spirit of an hustler. If *afrobeat* can bring the cash to the table then we all can claim it.
This is so simple. If you can’t beat them, join them and stop complaining
Haven’t y’all noticed the way nigerians excel at everything they do? We’re one of the most naturally creative and talented humans in the world, we just need better leaders and the sky would be our limit
this people and jealousy . Wizkid should try staying in Lagos small before Ghanaians will claim him as their own. Wizkid appiah
