Celestine Osemeilu claims Wale isn’t even known in Nigeria compared to the likes of Sarkodie and Becca.
“If Shatta Wale keeps doing his thing within the shores of Ghana and not think outside of Ghana, Shatta Wale will remain that local Ghanaian artiste,” expressed Osemeilu to Naa Ashorkor on Showbiz A-Z on Joy FM.
“When I visited Ghana last August, I did an opinion poll to know which artiste was bigger and I was shocked when I was told Shatta Wale was bigger than Sarkodie in Ghana. If you ask an average person in Nigeria who are their top two artistes from Ghana, they will mention Sarkodie and Becca….Shatta Wale won’t be in the picture.”
Osemeilu advised Wale to initiate alliances and partnerships with management companies in other countries in order to extend his musical influence.
He added that Nigerian artists have dominated the African music market because they have management deals with companies in several African countries.
