Sammy Rasta, a Ghanaian film director, has come down hard on Shatta Wale and asked him to stop making inflammatory statements that make it appear as though he is not mature.
The popular movie director slammed the dancehall musician following a post he made on Twitter about Stonebwoy’s fans a few days after he released his 5th Dimension Album.
Shatta Wale pleaded with his fans not to make negative remarks about the Bhim Nation’s president’s fifth studio album. The director thought this was a good move in the right direction; however, he did not understand why he went on to say that SM fans should leave Stonebwoy’s fans if they did not have the foresight to stop the comparison.
“5th Dimension, Stonebwoy’s 17th track album, has tried hard, and when you listen to the kind of songs on the album, very beautiful. So, after the release of the Album, I sighted a tweet by the almighty Shatta Wale, to me the tweet is in two ways, there is a positive side to the tweet but I think that some part that he included was needless.
“He said No SM fans should trash Stonebwoy’s album, then he continued that if his (Stonebwoy’s) fans don’t have the sense to stop the comparison leave them’. I don’t remember Stonebwoy posting your album launch so there wouldn’t have been any problem if you also don’t post him” he said on TV XYZ on May 3.
Shatta Wale’s tweet’s justification was questioned by Sammy Rasta. He inquired as to whether he was exerting an effort to promote his colleague’s new body of work or to initiate an uprising between the two fandoms.
“But whereby you start to insult Stonebwyoy’s fans that they don’t have sense and they want to start the comparison. Which comparison are we talking about therefore you, in this case, trying to promote the album or you are trying to instigate your fans to attack Stonebwoy fans, at this moment that we are supposed to celebrate one thing, and that is the Stonebwoy album.
“If you want your fans to support Stonebwoy’s album, tell them…all these things are unnecessary, I think that Shatta should grow up…you know someone will say that he just wants to fit in the conversation now but is it the way forward for Ghana music?” he asked.
