‘Let the awards go’ - Okyeame Kwame tells Shatta Wale
The Rap Doctor, Okyeame Kwame has advised acclaimed dancehall commando Shatta Wale to let the 2016 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards pass him by.
Speaking on Accra based 3FM on Wednesday evening, the Rap Doctor said that: “I think he [Shatta Wale] had it coming. If you take an award someone has given you and you auction it on Facebook, you send it back to them and you want to go inside again, I think any sane organization will make sure that … I mean … how would they know you are not coming back for it to ridicule them again?
“I like Shatta Wale. I understand his hustle. I think he is an inspiration to all of us but I think he should let the Charter House awards thing go. He should let it go.”
Answering a question on his favourite Ghanaian artiste currently, Okyeame Kwame said he likes Shatta Wale.
“I like Shatta Wale. I like the whole Bandana silence, makeover, the rebirth of Bandana [to] Shatta Wale as a movement. I think he is the modern definition of marketing in music properly.”
Charter House disqualified the dancehall commando from the 2016 VGMAs over comments he made about the awards of which they are demanding an apology.
