We are not your adversaries, Shatta Wale is being chastised by Nigerian entertainers following a bitter rant.
Some Nigerian entertainers have reacted to a rant by Shatta Wale, a Ghanaian dancehall star after his fans packed a stadium for his show.
During the show, NewsReport learned that he paused to reveal that he had been told he wouldn’t be able to draw such a large crowd if Nigerian artists were not on the bill.
“They said I wouldn’t be able to fill my own stadiums; I don’t need any Nigerian artiste to sell out Ghana’s stadium; f**k Nigerian artistes,” he said.
His remark enraged Nigerians, who pointed out that they are not his enemies and that there was never a competition in the first place.
Popular DJ, BigN, who reshared the insulting video said, “My dear shattawalenima I watched this video more than once. I tried to see your point. We are not the enemy. You can’t blatantly say “F**K Nigerians” and think there won’t be any repercussions.
We are not to blame that you are a local champion.
“Stop this bickering and talk true, Naija man don collect your babe again abi?” he asked in Pidgin English.
Comedian, Ushbebe labeled Shatta Wale’s rant, “Useless talk … I no even expect more from am.”
For an actor, IK Ogbonna, the dancehall singer’s rant is simply hate speech against the Nigerian people and demanded an apology.
He said, “Mr. Shattawalenima, you are a total and complete disappointment. In a time where we should be growing together and helping each other through creative collaborations. You should appreciate the Nigerian artiste because a win for any Nigerian artiste is a win for Africa. How do you promote unity with utterances like this? This is very weak for you. Deal with your complex issues and grow up. As an artist, I have featured in a few Ghana movies and I have also worked with amazing, adorable Ghanaians here in Nigeria. You should totally apologize for this #hatespeech”
Singer, Mr 2Kay took a relaxed view to the rant, saying, “We go still come Ghana come to flex ❤️ NIGERIANS lead others to follow. Proudly Nigerian 🇳🇬”
