Ghana Party In The Park UK: Shatta Wale Speaks On Why He Didn’t Attend
Shatta Wale has talked about why he did not attend the Ghana Party in the Park held in the United Kingdom.
Despite the publicity that Shatta Wale would perform, the popular musician did not show up.
Kofi Kinaata and Mayorkun of Nigeria also did not attend.
After the event that took place at London’s Trent Park on Saturday, July 16, 2022, people have been asking questions about why Shatta Wale and the other musicians did not show up.
Reacting to it in an interview on Hitz FM, Wale stated that the organizers defaulted some of the things they agreed on.
“I wanted it to be a GOG in conjunction with Akwaaba UK. So the whole title was going to be ‘Akwaaba UK in conjunction with Shatta Movement GOG experience’ and we accepted that,” he said.
“Secondly, I told him that he should try and get visas for my team, my team is big but we came to a conclusion where I could just take four of them with me including me making five and we agreed on that too. What I told him basically and vividly was that it’s time we Ghanaians start supporting our industry gatekeepers and coaches.
This is a show that I would want to come and perform for him for free, I don’t want to charge him any money. I want him to take all the money that he’s going to make from the show and just make sure to get these two things done for me.”
The Shatta Movement boss was shocked after he saw a flyer advertising him as the headline artiste when he was waiting for confirmation about what he demanded.
“I was there and I saw a flyer featuring a whole of artists including my information and I called him and told him this isn’t what we spoke about. When I was in America, there was no team with me, I explained to you vividly about how you guys have organised the show for a long time and this is how I want us to go because I have never been to Ghana party in the park before and this is going to be my first time and people are going to be excited about it and he was like it was his team and he forgot about that side…,” he stated.
