Nigeria’s Afro pop young talented artist, Star T Arepade has said that, self-acclaimed dancehall act Shatta Wale is not helping anybody in Nima so he should stop bragging.
Speaking to Docta Kay on Accra based Accra Fm’s drive time show dubbed “Nkran Kwanso”, the Nigerian artist shared his views on the Ghanaian music industry and he said “Definitely the Ghanaian music industry is doing well and Ghanaians love music more than Nigerians.
Ghanaians support their own and the upcoming artist more than Nigerians do because for Nigerians, they want to see you there before they support you.
In Nima, everybody supports me and I represent Nima everywhere and I’m not going back”
He was then asked by the Docta Kay about the supposed boss of Nima, Shatta Wale regarding music and what he sees from him and he replied, “I see music in shatta Wale but most especially, in Nima, every artist is trying to become a star but Shatta Wale is not doing the right thing.
He’s not helping the upcoming artist to get there because everybody is ‘dissing’ everybody. Come on, the industry is going to another place. So, in Nigeria we only do it for the showbiz, you can see Davido and Wizkid and at the end no one really know what they are quarreling.”
He added that, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy cannot be on the same stage together because everybody is his own Boss.
“You see and it’s not helping the industry. You can now see “Ghana Tupac” dissing Gariba. Shatta Wale has the Talent I wouldn’t say he doesn’t but, I love his music same as stonebouy. They are doing well, they cannot be on the same stage but I will choose stonebwoy over Shatta Wale”
