The controversial Dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah aka Shatta Wale has finally responded to Sarkodie’s ‘My Advice’ diss song at his Reign album launch and concert.
The show attracted over thousands of music lovers and Shatta Movement fans. Upon seeing how huge the crowd was, Shatta Wale took a swipe at Sarkodie, asking if an artist who wears ‘alumi’ chain can organize such a successful event.
Shatta Wale had on a number of occasions said he is the richest musician in Ghana – and that Sarkodie and other musicians are poor. But Sarkodie in the song challenged that wealth was not in bragging about a house and cars. He further took a dig at Shatta Wale, asking him to stop wearing inferior chains.
Some had argued that the release of the song was carefully planned to create a buzz around the ‘Reign’ album concert while others assert Sarkodie was indeed fed up with Shatta Wale’s casual comments.
The ‘Reign’ album concert was held at the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair. The 4-hour event saw the self-acclaimed dancehall king perform some of his old and newest tracks to the fans who had thronged the venue to support him.
Shatta Wale rocked the stage alongside Shatta Michy, Militants, and Zylofon Arts Club acts. Although there were several technical hitches which caused some disruptions, the audience appeared satisfied with the event.
The ‘Reign’ album has 17 tracks. According to Shatta Wale, although he loves all the songs on the album, his favorite is Exodus because it is inspired by his real-life struggles.
