Shatta Wale, has strongly criticized radio hosts and entertainment experts who criticize artists in the music world.
Many radio hosts, he believes, are unqualified to pass judgment on others and should instead focus on the positive.
He went live on Instagram to offer his thoughts on the music industry. He claimed that most radio DJs and individuals in the entertainment industry do not understand money well enough to criticize him.
He said, “A lot of the hosts you see are pretending to be rich, but behind the scenes, things are tough for them. They’re struggling. They shouldn’t think they can tell me how to live my life. I have a lot of money… They don’t have good plans for Ghana’s music industry. That’s why they sit on TV and radio and make fools of themselves.”
These remarks follow a recent disagreement with an entertainment specialist named Ola Michael. Ola Michael had stated that Shatta Wale should not obtain a diplomatic passport, despite the fact that a previous French ambassador had urged that certain famous Ghanaian artists obtain one. The plan aimed to assist the country’s cultural, arts, and entertainment industries.
