Ghanaian dancehall act, Shatta Wale has said there is nothing astonishing about his Nigerian counterpart Wizkid.
According to Shatta Wale, the self-acclaimed ‘Starboy’ is not a superstar.
Speaking on a show on Ghana’s Kasapa FM, the award-winning dancehall artiste criticised his colleagues who hold the Starboy in high esteem.
Wale said there is nothing to get him “stunned” about Wizkid, saying that the ‘Come Closer’ singer should instead be in awe of him.
“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,” the Ghanaian said.
His comments have since generated criticism from many Nigerian music fans, who have lashed out at him on Twitter.
Some Ghanaian fans of Wizkid also joined the criticism of Wale.
Ghanaian singer, Samini, also tweeted in support of Wizkid whom he described as a “huge African super star”.
As if the social bashing wasn’t enough, Wale also criticised Wizkid’s fans and his fellow Ghanaian artistes, describing them as “cowards”.
Wizkid who recently dropped his latest single, ‘MANYA’ is yet to respond to Shatta’s latest buff.
