My Beef With Nigerians Is Aimed At Creating Opportunities For Ghana’s Next Generation – Shatta Wale
Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah aka Shatta Wale, has explained why he engages in beef with Nigerians.
Shatta Wale’s beef with Wizkid, his fans, and his banter with Burna Boy are still fresh in the minds of many people in the entertainment sector.
Speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, Wale said he does that on purpose.
According to him, his beef with the Nigerians is aimed at creating opportunities for Ghana’s next generation.
“I have created the space for many. And nobody can come and tell me otherwise. Even when I am beefing with Nigerians, I am doing it because of the next generation. Now everybody is getting the opportunity. Everybody is going to Nigeria because that awareness is there.
“I have done things that even if I can’t go to Nigeria I want to see the Black Sheriffs, the Medikals entering there now. This is because we now see Nigeria as our America. So we must get the Nigerians’ attention that is why I have sacrificed my life for the industry,” he stated.
The Shatta Movement leader was unhappy about how his good sides are not trumpeted but always subjected to criticism.
“I have done a lot for this industry that people should appreciate and stop critiquing me because I have built a certain platform for the next generation and the one to come after them.
“It is not that I don’t know what I am doing but sometimes it hurts that we don’t recognize that side of Shatta Wale but we want to spread the bad side of him to the world,” Shatta Wale lamented.
