Ghanaian rap legend, Obrafour has asked Ghanaians to give Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale a break because he meant no malice regards his statement about Nigerian act, Wizkid.
The former shared his thoughts about the ‘beef’ between the artistes during a recent interview.
“We all know Shatta Wale, that’s how he is. With his beef with that Nigerian artiste, Wizkid, I don’t think he meant anything bad.” said Obrafour to Andy Dosty on HItz FM.
He also praised Wale for believing in himself: “for Shatta Wale to say ‘I want him to rather see me and go like wow!…shows the guy believes in himself.”
A few weeks ago, Shatta Wale said on Kasapa 102.5 FM he doesn’t consider WizKid to be a superstar.
We are living a life where upcoming youths are watching people get surprised of my achievement because they don’t have mind to elevate themselves.
“I don’t see wizkid to be too much for me but most of my ghanaians and ghanaian colleagues see him like that. But i want wizkid to see me and be like wow not otherwise because what is talking is your pocket, property, investment.I don’t see anything extraordinary about him, even though he claims to the best African artiste.”
His comments led to severe backlash especially from Nigerians online.
