Nigerian singer, Wizkid, has reacted to Ghana’s Shatta Wale’s comments concerning Nigerians and Nigerian artists.
The singer, speaking at his end-of-the-year Afrochella concert in Ghana said that Africans are one and emphasised the need to move in numbers.
Wizkid’s comment comes after Shatta Wale threw jabs at Nigerian musicians during his Freedom Wave concert and subsequently on his Twitter page.
After Wizkid’s performance at the just-ended Afrochella event, he seized a moment to preach peace and unity among all African nationals.
Charging his teeming fans at the EL Wak Sports Stadium, he said that ”I have a message for you tonight, don’t care whether you are black, white, blue or purple, I don’t give an F, I will show you the same love I show to my brothers or sisters. I want you to understand something here. There is one Africa. We move together in numbers.”
He further stated, “There is one love, one Africa. Whether in Ghana, Nigeria, or Kenya, we are all the same.“
Other rants by Shattawale:
“As for Nigerians, they think they can always say what they want to say. F**k your talks, ya’ll who think I spoke the truth. I don’t even remember you guys promoting Ghanaian artists in your country. Until you guys realize your artiste blow in Ghana to say thank you…
In another tweet, he said:
“bring it on and your artists won’t get that hype they get from Ghana.” .. I can make that stop. Don’t dare me. True, your artists come here for numbers before the rest of the world recognizes them. Appreciate Ghana supporting your artists and stopping this foolishness. “
Other notable Nigerians who have responded to Shatta Wale includes DJ Big N, Yung6ix, Yul Edochie, Burna Boy and others.
