Ghana’s all-time best recording and performing artiste, Samini has finally opened up as to why he ranted on social media about the much publicised ‘Asaase Sound Clash’ and the involvement of Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale.
The award winning Raggae/Dancehall artiste, who was seen registering his displeasure in an instagram video, disclosed his motive for the social media rant.
Samini who is the godfather of Stonebwoy disclosed this during an interview with DJ Seani B on Asaase Radio.
The “My Own” hitmaker who ranted and even threatened to expose Stonebwoy, revealed that his rants on social media was his strategy to trend and become relevant and indeed he achieved his aim.
“My rants on social media about the clash was to have me trend, and I achieved that. It was my smart way to get involved as well. There is still unfinished business between me and Shatta Wale. I wasn’t surprised to see Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale names come up for the Sound Clash. My longevity in the game is good reason enough to include me in Sound Clash such as this one. I don’t see the reason why anyone would disagree with me on this,” Samini revealed.
He added: “I don’t see me and Stonebwoy having a ‘head on’ sound clash in a competitive bout because ‘Father & Son’ don’t have to do that, perhaps it would have to be a family vibe sort of with Stonebwoy on the microphone; if anything between me and Stonebwoy on the microphone it will be more like a party clash and not anything so serious. It still remains a family thing between me and Stonebwoy forever. HighGrade Family and Bhim Nation are family forever and I won’t change that narrative.”
Samini however applauded Asaase Radio for bringing together the two most controversial artiste in Ghana.
“I am proud of the genre I am part of. Aside my concerns raised, I am singularly excited about this. It is the best thing to ever happen in the history of Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall music. And the bigger reason for the clash which is to crush COVID-19 even makes me doff my hat for Asaase Radio 99.5fm,” he stated.
When Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy’s sound clash was first announced, Samini shockingly recorded a video attacking the two of them.
In the lengthy video, Samini attacked Stonebwoy for not informing him about the clash when he knows he (Samini) has a beef with Wale.
Samini said Shatta Wale way bigger and older than Stonebwoy and any clash should be between him and Shatta and not Stonebwoy and Wale.
