Shatta Wale explains why he will now charge Sarkodie, others for song features
Dancehall artistes Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale, says he will begin to charge colleague musicians, especially Sarkodie if they need him on their songs.
According to Shatta, charging Sarkodie and his likes will put them on their toes to wake up from their slumber in the music industry.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM on Tuesday, Shatta said he was surprised that Sarkodie will shoot a music video with a Nigerian but refuse to do same with him when he was an up and coming artiste.
He told show host Andy Dosty that he will charge some colleague musicians and will ready himself to pay for their services should he want to feature them too.
“I am trying to charge Sarkodie for something from Strongman. He told me he will pay. If it’s Strongman from Sarkcess, they will have to pay because that’s how we can keep them on their toes. If he charges me too, I will pay. When you are a man and you fear money, you will never get it…” Shatta said.
I did a song with him but he didn’t shoot the video but with a Nigerian, he did; what is he talking about,” he queried.
Asked why he didn’t shoot the music video with his own money, Shatta Said “The time I did the dancehall commando, I had nothing. If Sarkodie had something small he could have,” he said.
Shatta Wale is currently promoting his album dubbed, The Reign which is due to be released on October 13, 2018.
