Shatta Wale Opens Up: I like the way Samini performs

The two top dancehall artistes in Ghana, Samini and Shatta Wale, for some time now have been throwing jabs at each other calling themselves names. Several songs have been released by these dancehall acts using foul words to describe the other.

If what Shatta Wale is saying is anything to go by, then OMG!Ghana.com can confirm that the feud between him and Samini has come to an end.

Shatta Wale who appeared as a guest on last Saturday’s Diva’s Show on TV3, showered praises on Samini for the energy he exhibits during his performances. He again defended Samini’s performance at the recently held Ghana Music Awards accusing Charter House, organizers of the event, of not allowing the ‘Linda’ hitmaker to perform with his band.

“When you get shows like Ghana Music Awards, promoters don’t allow you to perform with your band. Samini came on stage and found out that that wasn’t his band because if that was his band, he was going to deliver so good. When I watch him with his own band, I like the way he performs.”

He advised that promoters need to take artistes’ requests into consideration when they are master planning for their events to help the artiste give off his best during the show.

When Nana Aba Anamoah, host of the show queried him on when he is collaborating with Samini, the ‘Dancehall King’ hitmaker said ‘we will be working on it don’t worry. I want it to be a surprise”

He added that, “I’m an artiste and I need to work with all the great artistes in Ghana. I like him you know”

He revealed that he has recorded a track with Sarkodie which will be released soon.

Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Guru, Castro and Lil Win will lead Ghana to face Davido, Kcee, Wizboyy and Selobobo from Nigeria on Saturday, May 24th at the Accra International Conference Center for the fourth edition of Ghana meets Naija concert.
