Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid and Ghanaian-born producer and reggae-dancehall musician Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr known by his stage name Shatta Wale have been at loggerheads for a while now which prompted Shatta Wale to once threatened Wizkid, warning him not to come to Ghana.
Trouble began when the Ghanaian dancehall music slammed Nigerian music sensation, Wizkid.
During an interview with Kasapa FM, Shatta revealed his displeasure over how Ghanaians, especially celebrities, put Wikzid on a pedestal.
According to him, there is nothing special about the afrobeats singer. He said Wizkid should be starstruck when he sees him (Shatta Wale). He said;
“I will not see Wizkid and be stunned, I rather want him to see me and be amazed because I don’t see anything extraordinary about him, even though he claims to the best African artiste”,
The statement, of course, caused a lot of trouble on social media, with many Nigerians and even Ghanaians attacking Shatta Wale.
However, it seems as though the ‘spat’ is over as they singers have both put that behind them and reconciled!
