Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna has reprimanded Ghanaian Dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly called Shatta Wale over his derogatory comments about on Nigerians.
Shatta Wale whilst performing at his Freedom Concert at the Accra Sports Stadium burst out in fury berating his Nigerian counterparts including Wizkid over their strides and achievements in music after Wizkid filled up the O2 Arena a few weeks ago with his ‘Made in Lagos’ tour in the UK.
Shatta Wale warned those comparing him to Wizkid and other Nigerian artists to stop because he can also fill up the stadium and he does not need Nigerians or Americans to prosper in music.
Reacting to his outburst, IK Ogbonna chided him and described Shatta Wale a complete disappointment. He also demanded an apology on behalf of Nigerians.
“MR shattawalenima you are a total and complete disappointment. In a time where we should be growing together and helping each other through creative collaborations .. You should Appreciate the Nigerian artist coz a win for any Nigerian artist is a win for Africa .
How do you promote unity with utterances like this . This is very weak from you … deal with ur complex issues and grow up. As an artist I have featured in a few ghana movies and I have also worked with amazing , adorable Ghanaians here in Nigeria …. You should totally apologize for this”
