David Oscar, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy
Comedian and musician, David Oscar says Shatta Wale is envious of fellow musician Stonebwoy, following his recent attacks on him.
“Shatta Wale is currently stuck in his jealousy and envy of Stonebwoy, don’t tell me it’s showbizness, this is witchcraft. Tell him I say, that he will and can never ever be like Stonebwoy,” Oscar wrote on Facebook.
The remarks come after Shatta Wale slammed Stonebwoy, describing the latter as a curtain-raiser artiste.
On the back of the comparison between Ghanaian and Nigerian musicians, Stonebwoy in a conversation with media personality Berla Mundi talked about the state of the Ghana music industry in light of the successful O2 Arena concert by Nigerian artiste Asake.
In his narrative, Stonebwoy, along with others, asserted that the imposition of such pressures would yield no solutions unless the proper systems were established. He emphasised the need for increased industry awareness to foster its growth.
However, in a video circulating on social media, Shatta Wale strongly rebuked Stonebwoy’s remarks. He argued that Stonebwoy was diminishing his own worth, and predicted that he would never attain the same level of respect and attention as top Nigerian artistes.
“Stonebwoy was asked if he was facing pressure, and he said no pressure, but awareness. You dress and do your Instagram photos like Burna Boy. Hasn’t anyone told you? You are facing pressure, which is why you want to go on stage later, you want to be on stage at the same time as Wizkid? Look at what you did at Afro Nation Detroit. You were given time to come on stage, you wanted to go at the time you wanted.
“You allow yourself to be paid $10,000 while Burna Boy gets paid $300,000. Did you expect to be treated like an important person? You are just a curtain raiser!! You will never get the same platform as Wizkid, Davido, or Burna Boy,” Shatta Wale fumed. But Oscar says he jealous.
