Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has extended season greetings to fans of his, who are also fans of Nigerian artiste, WizKid.
“Merry Christmas to all my @wizkidayo fans,” reads the message posted by Wale on Micro blogging site, Twitter on late Friday afternoon.
It is unclear whether he was being serious or sarcastic. Weeks ago, comments by the Dancehall act irked Nigerians, leading to an attack on his personality online.
In an interview on Kasapa 102.3 FM, Wale said he doesn’t consider Nigerian artiste, Wizkid as a super star. He added that there is nothing extraordinary about the ‘Ojuelegba‘ act.
“People don’t have that mind to elevate themselves that is why nowadays people see Wizkid and say wow he’s a star. I don’t see Wizkid to be too much for me but Ghanaians see him like that and artistes also see him like that. I will not see Wizkid and be stunned, I rather want him to see me and be amazed because properties and investments are talking,” explained Wale on Kasapa 102.3 FM.
“Don’t be wearing fake chains and tell me you’re number one artiste in Africa because I don’t get scared with those things. That’s why when I preach about making money in the music business, I say it and say it well for people to see that this is no joke thing.”
His comments led to a severe backlash from Nigerians on Twitter.
Merry Christmas to all my @wizkidayo fans ..🎁🎁🎁🔑🗝🔑
