Ghana’s acclaimed Dancehall King Shatta Wale has stated with strong emphasis that Rappers Sarkodie and Kwaw Kese are currently very poor financially and they are refusing to accept that publicly.
The Zylofon Signee has described his colleague musicians Sarkodie, and Kwaw Kese as “Very Poor”.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Luv FM, the ‘Gringo’ hit maker said many so-called A-rated artistes are poor but do not want the public to know.
He said the Ghana music industry has a big problem, which is that artistes are paid lesser wages for performances.
“I am talking about the problem that it is in the music industry that they know it’s a problem which they don’t want people to know, because when people know that right now Kwaw Kese is very poor, Sarkodie is poor….” He said.
He continued to say that..“Even Stonebwoy, Stonebwoy is on my label so at least, he gets some cash for there. He gets some Benz, 1,2,3..4. But the rest of them are poor and I am saying the poor because it is very very serious.”
According to him, he will continue to fight the system until Ghanaian artistes are paid well for their performances. Shatta Wale’s latest ‘attacks’ come on the back of a previous rant against the aforementioned artistes.
Shatta Wale yesterday, September 22,2018 held a press conference to unveil the cover art for his upcoming ‘Reign’ album at the Kumasi City Mall. ‘The Reign’, is the third album for Shatta Wale and the first under Zylofon Music label with 17 tracks produced by Mogbeatz, Baddoneh, ShawerzEbiem and DJ Milzey.
