The renowned Dancehall musician claimed that his ongoing spat with Nigerian artists is intended to advance his country’s music and pave the way for new and emerging talents in Ghana.
Shatta Wale stated in a recent interview with Daybreak Hitz that he has strong relationships with Burna Boy, Dammy Krane, and many other Nigerian artists besides Wizkid.
“Davido is my guy, Burna Boy is my guy, Dami Krane…it’s only Wizkid that I haven’t had that rapport with. All the boys that are making waves in Nigeria are my boys, but the little mistake you do around me and I tell you and you don’t listen I will shift myself,” Shatta Wale disclosed.
“I know how to make money myself too, I’m not the type you won’t take seriously. I won’t come back again,” he added.
Shatta Wale, who recently spat with Burna Boy, remarked that such beef with Nigerian superstars is for the growth of Ghana’s music industry, as well as to create easy access for Ghana’s next-generation artistes to invade Nigeria, which they perceive as America.

“I have done a lot for this industry that people should appreciate and stop critiquing me because I have built a certain platform for the next generation and the one to come after them.
“It is not that I don’t know what I am doing, but sometimes it hurts that we don’t recognize that side of Shatta Wale, but we want to spread the bad side of him to the world,” he said.
Shatta Wale went on, “I have created space for many. And nobody can come and tell me otherwise. Even when I am beefing with Nigerians, I am doing it because of the next generation. Now everybody is getting the opportunity. Everybody is going to Nigeria because that awareness is there.
