The Self-proclaimed King of African Dancehall, Charles Nii Armah Mensah aka Shatta Wale has counseled rapper Sarkodie to buy a car and stop borrowing before advising him.
According to the Dancehall artiste, he finds it very difficult to comprehend how an individual who can not afford his own car can insult him.
In a freestyle video released titled ‘My Advice’, Sarkodie attacked Shatta Wale and described him as an insecure attention seeker.
“Your brand [is not] strong enough, If it is strong then keep quiet. You will soon [leave]…You showed d***, one day you will show buttocks. The last thing [that I] want is attention,” Sarkodie noted in the rap music.
Sarkodie challenged Shatta Wale’s claim to wealth and asked him to stop wearing cheap jewelry.
“Who gives an f*** about your chicken change property…f*** all the bragging and chill because honestly your whole bank account couldn’t buy you one tear rubber [Range Rover] Evoque but you claiming supremacy,” the rapper jabbed.
However, Shatta Wale in his interview on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM hosted by Daniel Dadzie urged Sarkodie to advise himself first.
“Don’t tell me you want to advise me when you can’t afford your own car,” Wale said.
According to Shatta Wale, he has several cars, most of which he has registered in his name. This, he said, same cannot be said about Sarkodie.
Wale advised Sarkodie to stop borrowing cars from people, stressing that Sarkodie’s cars are not his that is why they are not customized in his name.
Shatta Wale recently bought a Mercedes Benz and registered it ‘ADVICE 1-18’.
Making reference to that car, he said: “That is why I showed him [Sarkodie] that Benz.”
Commenting on a line in Sarkodie’s ‘My Advice’ in which the rapper said “If being poor be like me then father I beg you just bless me with poverty,” Shatta Wale said, “That is just a fake line on the song.”
Shatta questioned why he “should I reply rapper when I am dancehall artist? It is not done anywhere in the world.”
“Sarkodie is a very small boy. He is my junior when it comes to music,” he said and added that unless the rapper comes on the radio to apologize to him, they can not patch up things.
