Ghanaian Dancehall act, Shatta Wale has indicated that Sarkodie can never be bigger than him in anyway. Hence, people should desist from comparing them.
Speaking on Empire 102.7fm on August 9, Shatta said it is disrespectful comparing him to Sarkodie. Because, he came way before Sarkodie’s entrance on the music scene. Yet, people undermine his efforts because Sarkodie is their favourite.
When I released ‘Bandana from Ghana’, where was Sarkodie? So I’m more experienced in this business than all those kind.
“So the moment you compare me to Sarkodie, you make Sarkodie feel too big and when I talk to Sarkodie, he feels like he is big.
“Sarkodie can never be bigger than Shatta Wale in his life. Even when you give birth, there is a first born and a second born. Therefore you can’t give the first position to the second born. I’m not saying Sarkodie is not successful with what he is doing. He is playing his role as a musician but don’t compare me to Sarkodie,” he said.
Shatta disclosed that comparing him to Sarkodie has made the two time VGMA Artiste of the Year grow wings since he feels they are on the same level.
During a recent discussion on United Showbiz, following calls by the former French Ambassador for some Ghanaian artistes to be given diplomatic passports
Neat FM presenter, Ola Michael insinuated that Shatta will make such a call difficult to implement.
In response, Shatta Wale released a diss song for Ola Michael which he says is to express his displeasure for always being negatively used as study case.
“Why didn’t he use Samini? He could have used anybody so why should Shatta Wale be used as an example in a diplomatic passport? Let’s think deeply, is it right?” he stated.
