Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale
The highly anticipated Asaase Sound Clash took centre stage on Saturday with thrills from two of Ghana’s biggest dancehall artistes, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
The concert, an Asaase Radio initiative, themed: “A Clash to Crush COVID”, saw two of Ghana’s biggest artistes join forces to help raise awareness about coronavirus (Covid-19).
The lyrical battle, which lasted for close to two hours did produce some exciting moments as both artistes locked horns with the aim of winning the bragging rights as Ghana’s finest dancehall king.
In one of the best stage performances Ghana had ever witnessed over the past years, both Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy dropped 40 back to back hits in a relentless lyrical vibe.
Their performances at the event will be remembered as the best put up by any artiste this year.
Despite no winner being declared at the end, the message from both artistes about the need to observe various protocols to safeguard lives during this pandemic was vital.
Stonebwoy at the end of the clash urged the youth not to engage in any deviant behaviour that would ruin the peace in the country ahead of the December 7 elections.
The night also saw some undercard battle performances from reigning Dancehall and Reggae Artiste of the Year, Ras Kukuu and fast-rising artiste, Karmelyeon.
Self-acclaimed dancehall queen, MzVee, also delivered a stunning performance in a night of classic reggae and dancehall moments that would go into the annals of Ghanaian music as the best ever staged.
Prior to the clash, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy made donations of some personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Korle-Gonno Polyclinic and Ashaiman Community Hospital respectively.
Meanwhile, Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema East constituency, Titus Glover, has called on Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale to have a joint concert.
In an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, he stated that the concert should celebrate the unity between them.
