Shatta Wale Wades In On The Nigerian Music On Ghanaian Radio Debate

Shatta Wale, the famous Ghanaian musician, has recently shared his thoughts on the ongoing debate surrounding the dominance of Nigerian music in Ghana. In a constructive tone, he expressed his belief that Ghanaians should be free to enjoy the music they prefer without any limitations or restrictions. He also emphasized the importance of promoting local talent rather than trying to limit the exposure of Nigerian artists in Ghana.

Shatta Wale expressed disappointment with his fellow musicians advocating for reducing Nigerian music on Ghanaian airwaves. Instead, he suggested that the Ghanaian music industry focus on collaborating with Nigerian artists and promoting cultural exchange between the two countries. He also took the opportunity to praise Nigerian artists such as Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy, whom he believes have shown love and respect for Ghana. He questioned why some in the industry would want to play their music less frequently, emphasizing that Ghanaians should be free to listen to any artist they choose.

Shatta Wale’s perspective is collaboration and mutual respect between Ghanaian and Nigerian artists rather than rivalry and competition. Through humorous exaggeration, the dancehall artist made it clear that it will take a considerable amount of time for Ghanaian artists to gain the same level of recognition and popularity in Nigeria as their Nigerian counterparts enjoy in Ghana.

“E go take you people roughly the year 5050. Your spirit of wanna be is very bad ..Is it by force for Ghanaians to listen to your fav. They like Wizkid.”
