Sam George descends on Shatta Wale during an interview on an interview on Hitz FM recently.
Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, disclosed that Shatta Wale was frustrated as lacked certain qualities leading to his verbal attack on Nigeria some weeks ago.
Shatta Wale’s remarks led to his public hatred display of hatred for Burna Boy, someone he had once called a brother.
Sam George explained that Shatta Wale’s outburst was because they were no relevant investment in the Ghana Music industry as compared to Nigeria.
He was heard saying;
“Shatta is fighting Nigeria. It’s a frustration of the system. We were in a world of our own, but again, what did we do? No conscious effort by the state or private capital to invest in that sector.”
“Then again, it comes to what I think is a problem of our country. Ghanaians celebrate mediocrity. We are content with little. Ghanaians tag you as greedy when they see you pushing for more… Ghanaians will fight you. We fight our own. Nigerians celebrate their own.”
“In the 70s Ghanaian music was the ish across West Africa, Highlife. In the early 2000s, our Hiplife was what it was and Nigerians didn’t have any response to us. They were still banging on Fela Kuti’s music to respond to our Hiplife. At the time, Obrafour and Lord Kenya were setting the place ablaze. At the time, Okomfuor Kwaadee came out with hits, Samini, then Batman, Kokovelli, KK Fosu, I mean Nigerians had absolutely no response to us.”
