Shatta Wale has denigrated Captain Smart in a video by calling him a very stupid man. In his typical volatile demeanour, the SM boss took to his favourite Facebook platform to direct missiles at the mainstream broadcaster and journalist.
Recall that Wale was supoosed to headline the Hogbetsotso Beach Rave which went down live in Tegbi in the Volta Region of Ghana in 2022.
It was previously stated that Shatta, the event’s headliner performer, did not appear on stage despite having arrived in town and was even with his entourage in rented cars provided by the organisers.
“It is interesting to note that Shatta Wale had shown up at the venue of the concert in vehicles rented for him and his team by the organizers yet could not be found afterwards. All efforts by the two management teams to get him to come to the concert grounds to perform to the waiting crowd proved futile,” parts of the statement from the organizers read.
Obviously, fans and organisers were left utterly disappointed by the turn of events which is why the Dancehall has given his side of the story on social media.
After days of silence, Shatta took to social media to state reasons for his absence on stage.
Wale said he was driven directly to a radio station to grant an interview when he already had an agreement with organizers that he would not participate in such an arrangement or even greet any chief.
He added that one of the organizers threatened to withhold his accommodation if he fails to grant the interview and that was when he took off.
“Ibe show wey them contract me for. We no dey go greet greet people. Ago taya before the show starts sef. I know how people dey love me and I know I’d have to get into the crowd. Everybody go dey talk to you and your voice all go strain. I wanted to keep the energy for my lovely people of volta. As I ask them whether ino be this thing I tell them before coming, I hear sey one of the organizers say if I no go come the radio station, then them no go take me go my hotel room. So you expect me to carry all the luggage I came with to the radio station?” he expressed in Pidgin English during an Instagram live.
Well, although the issue has been put to rest, Shatta Wale started the new year by waking up sleeping dogs and going hard on Captain Smart for the role he played in the fiasco. The video below has all the details.
