Music Shatta Wale’s “Wizkid – superstar” comment not a crime – Da’ Hammer Published 18 hours ago on November 17, 2017 By Gabriel Myers Hansen Veteran Ghanaian producer Da’ Hammer of The Last Two has submitted his take on dancehall singer Shatta Wale’s recent comments on Nigerian act Wizkid. In a recent radio interview on Accra-based Kasapa FM, the Kakai man had said that he would never be starstruck by Wizkid as he too holds his own: “I will not see Wizkid and be stunned, I rather want him to see me and be amazed because I don’t see anything extraordinary about him, even though he claims to the best African artiste”, Shatta Wale had said in the radio interview, in which he also stressed that he does exactly consider Wizkid a super star. The comment obviously didn’t go down well with a cross section of Nigerian music lovers, brewing an online feud between the two West African countries on the matter. Read Da’ Hammer’s take, posted on Facebook below: So I just made time to peruse this controversy thoroughly from its inception and realized the starbwoy Wale said nothing in disrespect to the starbwoy wizzy to begin with. Whoever broke the story first is the one blame here. My take on this is perspective. Shatta said “Me I no dey see wizkid superstar oo”. Story quoted him as saying “wizkid is not a super star”. Now why wld u wanna do tht… 50cent probably doesn’t necessarily see lil Wayne as a super star cos he probably believes he’s his equal but from where I sit, I do think Wayne is a super star from my perspective. I guarantee u many of Nigerian celebrities don’t even see our Sark as a super star. This isn’t even about supporting ur own. It’s just a classic case of not being star struck by someone’s art or hustle, and that’s no crime. There u have it.. superstardom is not absolute.. it’s relative. There’s no problem here.. stop inciting a rivalry between us and Nigerians. I respect the Shatta movement and their hustle.

The “Highest” was scheduled to perform alongside other African giants at the just-ended Dubai leg of the widely-patronised One Africa Music Festival, but refused to mount the stage despite a successful soundcheck session earlier. Journalist Eugene Osafo Nkansah reports that the rapper was shoved aside because Davido was ready to perform, never mind that he had just been announced by host Banky W to perform: “During the concert, host of the show Banky W announced Sarkodie as the next act on stage after Nigeria’s Teckno performance and Sarkodie’s DJ, DJ Mensah mounted the stage but Banky W came back to announce Davido’s name after someone whipped to him on stage that Davido was next. The show started at about 9:30 pm and ended at about 2:45 am and all the artistes numbering about 20 from different African countries(Kenya, Angola, South Africa, Ethiopia, Tanzanian, Nigeria etc) performed with the exception of Ghana’s Sarkodie.” George Britton also reports of scuffles and arrests as a result of the unfortunate incident: “When Sark was just about hitting the stage, Davido’s guy attacked Black Nana by pushing him to the floor to allow Davido perform. Ugly scenes. Slaps, blows, police arrest etc”, he posted on Facebook earlier this morning. The rapper, his official turntablist DJ Mensah, and Dancehall singer Shatta Wale have all tweeted reactions regarding the incident. Sarkodie was Ghana’s only rep at the concert, which also saw performances from 2face Idibia, Wizkid, Davido, Tecko, Diamond, Victoria Kimani, Cassper Nyovest, Tiwa Savage, Flavour, Emma Nyra among others. One Africa Music Fest is described by organisers as ‘ Africa’s leading platform in showcasing the best and brightest musical talents in the continent, with the sole aim of solidifying Africa’s position within the entertainment industry on a global level”.
