A gang of social media users particularly those on twitter have taken to the social media app to express their displeasure with Shatta Wale over his attempt to use the barbarity occurring in Nigeria to sell his music.
Shatta Wale shared a link to his new song calling for freedom in Nigeria. Titling his new song “Freedom” , he posted ” The people of Nigeria deserves FREEDOM. Free my people”.

However Shatta Wale’s approach to the EndSARS protest wasn’t really relished by his followers and Nigerians in a whole as he was dragged on the platform for his insensitive acts. Some deduce it as a means of cashing in on the crises facing Nigerians.
Read some of the replies;
Am a die hard SM fan but ..This is not the time to release any music about what we are facing
