Ghanaian singer and rapper Big J Cartel, a member of the music group Praye and Ghanaian Celebrity photographers have called Shatta Wale to order as he calls Grand Papa of Rap Music in Ghana a poor man.
In an interview with Nana Ama McBrown on United Showbiz on UTV, Shatta Wale referred to Grand Papa Reggie Rockstone the originator of Ghanaian rap as a poor man. This outburst from Shatta Wale has made Praye Tietia and TwinsDntBeg angry and they have shared their opinion on what happened on United Showbiz last Saturday.
In an Instagram post Praye Tietia wrote and we have published this unedited: “Bro! @shattawalenima Many are those before you who sacrificed a lot to build an industry for all of us to join. The Music industry years ago took blood, sweat, passion and pure talent to entertain Ghanaians for love and country. Legends like @reggierockstone and others sacrificed to pave the way for us in hiplife and afrobeat, including people who sacrificed and groomed you Bandana for absolutely nothing. You rich pass all of us, yooo wakaa yati but i can assure you your so called riches won’t make top 10 list of rich musicians even in our neighbouring Nigeria here norr sef, so bro enough of the disrespect to Ghanaian artistes, producers, DJs and the entire industry you came to meet! Many artistes are very comfortable but they don’t need to brag and disrespect others like you do. Davido and Wizkid are two of the richest musicians in Africa but they don’t find the need to disrespect their predecessors! You dey embarrass yourself and Ghanaian musicians to the world. no personal beef here just common sense and morals being shared. We’ve had it with the gross disrespect and ridiculing at any given chance. Brag all you want but learn to respect people who have made scarifices for you to “eat” today! There were people before you and there will be people after you. We are grown men and women who also have families, you don’t open your mouth and spew anything anyhow”.
In addition, Ghanaian Celebrity photographers TwinsDontBeg also joined Praye Tietia to call Shata Wale to order in an Instagram post published here as well: “twinsdntbeg God bless you for coming out to say this. This behavior of Shatta is absolutely uncalled for and shouldn’t be entertained” they commented.
