SARKODIE IS A HYPOCRITE AND TOO FULL OF HIMSELF – Shatta Wale Vents

Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has called out his friend Rapper Sarkodie very hush words during a live radio interview this morning on Zylofon FM in Accra.

The “Gringo” hitmaker has discribed Sarkodie as a hypocrite after he(Sarkodie) sent him a congratulatory message to him via Twitter for collaborating with American Singer/Actress Beyoncé on her much anticipated  latest “Zions King: The Gift” album.

Shatta Wale early Wednesday morning on Zylofon 102.1FM described Obidi as a hypocrite. Explaining why he did not retweet Sarkodie’s congratulatory message to him, the SM4LYF boss told Sammy Flex, host of the morning entertainment show that the tweet from Sark was not from his heart.

According to him, Sarkodie has been acting as a boss towards him and that is an attitude he hates.

“Sarkodie has become too known. He was recently on Hitz FM and he was trying to pose big to me. I don’t pose big to people. Music is not about your dress and it’s not about how you speak”, Shatta said.  

He continued and explained why he did wish Sarkodie happy birth  “I don’t want hypocrites around me. Sarkodie has always been a hypocrite. I didn’t wish him on his birthday. He think he can tweet about my collabo and make people say he’s a matured person. I won’t retweet his tweet. He can say that message but I know deep down within him it wasn’t a real tweet.”.

Shatta Wale and Sarkodie have being very good friends in the past and done number monster hit collaborations and performed together on countless stages both in and outside Ghana but they have been on loggerheads for sometime now with each of them claiming supremacy over the other.

As at the time of filing this report, Rapper Sarkodie hadn’t reacted to Shatta Wale strong words against him yet.

SHATTA WALE & STONEBWOY BANNED INDEFINITELY FROM GHANA MUSIC AWARDS

Two rival reggae dancehall artistes Livingstone Etse Satekla, known in showbiz as Stonebwoy, and his archrival Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., aka Shatta Wale, have been stripped of the awards received at the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), by organisers of the event, Charterhouse.

The two artistes have also been asked to “return all plaques in their possession to Charterhouse effective immediately.”

The claim by Shatta and Stonebwoy for dancehall supremacy in the country has festered on for years creating enmity between the two artistes and their followers.

The rivalry between the two hit the roof in the wee hours of Sunday causing Stonebwoy to pull out a handgun on stage.

There was near-pandemonium at this year’s music awards after Stonebwoy had just been declared winner of the 2019 Reggae and Dancehall Artiste of the Year, and was on stage to receive his award. His presentation was rudely interrupted by Shatta Wale and his multitude of fans who decided to mount the stage with him in what some perceived to be in a confrontational manner leading to the scuffle.

But for the intervention of the security at the auditorium who managed to quell the tension and bring the situation under control, the scuffle could have turned bloody.

The VGMA Board’s decision announced this morning at a press conference, also indicated that “the two top honours of the night, i.e Most Popular Song of the Year and Artiste of the Year, have for the 20th Edition of the VGMAs been annulled.”

Additionally, the board also “banned indefinetely from participating in the nominations, selections and performances at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards scheme”.’

I Will Not Be Part’

Meanwhile, Shatta Wale who’s currently in court over his fight with arch-rival Stonebwoy during the 20th anniversary of the VGMA took to his official Instagram page a few hours before the Charterhouse announcement, to opt out of future Ghana Music Awards. 

Upon sober reflections of events in recent times and having made broader consultations, I wish to announce that I will not be part of the Ghana Music Awards scheme going forward. God bless!”

SHATTA WALE & STONEBWOY GRANTED GH¢50,000 BAIL EACH AFTER FIRST COURT APPEARANCE…CASE ADJOURNED TO JUNE 20

Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale have pleaded not guilty to charges they are facing over their involvement in the disturbances that marred the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Shatta Wale is facing a charge of offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace while Stonebwoy has been charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace and display of a firearm in public without permission.

The two were put before a court in Accra today, Wednesday. The court presided over by Magistrate Isaac Addo granted the two bail at a cost of GHc 50,000 with one surety each.

Lawyers Jerry Avenyor and Selali Wonya represented Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy respectively. The case has been adjourned to June 20, 2019. The two were cautioned to be of good behaviour while the case is ongoing.

The scuffle on the stage last Saturday has been a subject of many conversations in the country as it has been widely reported in local and international media. While Stonebwoy was up the VGMA stage taking his award, Shatta Wale, his rival on the music scene, was seen moving towards the stage with a host of others presumed to be his fans.

The security on stage provided cover for Stonebwoy and the few others already up the stage but Stonebwoy’s manager allegedly engaged in fisticuffs with a member of the team moving with Shatta Wale. The incident degenerated into pandemonium with one Nii Amoo spraying pepper spray according to Police report. Stonebwoy also pulled out a gun in the process but there was no sound of a gun fire.

Charterhouse condemns brawl

Organisers of the event condemned the commotion saying it cannot be attributed to security lapses. Head of communications at Charterhouse, George Quaye said the unfortunate incident has more to do with the grand issue of rivalries between musicians and how they are managed.

According to him, both Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy, who were the centre of the chaos failed to act responsibly by holding themselves back from taking certain actions which clearly wasn’t going to ensure peace at the event.

“Many are those who have accused Charterhouse of not putting in place adequate security to avert the situation but George Quaye said “it goes beyond that. You will expect an act to know that if I get up here, or if I do this, this is what will happen… Another act should also know that this is what is happening, or the act manager knows that this not the place where I draw out a weapon,” he said on Citi TV‘s Point of View on Monday.

Apologies

Stonebwoy had apologised twice for the brawl.

“I only had to react out of natural instincts because we all know how premeditative some people can be. We’ve seen on social media the threats and everything so we couldn’t come in unprepared because anything could have happened as you guys saw. I come in peace and I go in peace and I apologize to the whole masses of Ghana that the Awards is going to continue,” he said.

“Management of Shatta Wale wishes to render a sincere apology to all patrons of the 20th edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), viewers of the event around the world, organizers of the awards, Charterhouse Productions, title sponsors, Vodafone Ghana and all Shatta Movement fans worldwide for the unfortunate incident that happened during the recently held VGMA. We further apologize for all the inconveniences caused on the night and afterwards,” a statement from Shatta Wale’s management stated.
