Ghanaian dancehall singer Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr., alias Shatta Wale, says that no Ghanaian artist is as popular as Nigerian singer Asake.
Shatta Wale made this comment on Wednesday, during a Twitter space sponsored by Ghanaian media personality Serwaa Amihere.
Shatta Wale said, “No Ghanaian artiste has even made it like Asake. Not even me.
“Nobody in this Ghanaian [music] industry has made what Asake has made. Let’s be realistic.”
The host inferred: “But you said you are the richest Ghanaian artiste and you haven’t even made it up to Asake’s level?”
Shatta Wale replied: “Why would I have to make it up to Asake’s level [before I would be the richest artiste in Ghana]? There is a Spanish artiste in Spain or Dominican Republic that is making money that we don’t know.”
– “No Ghanaian artiste has made it to Asake’s level not even me” – Shatta Wale wails.
