Shatta Wale has recently opined that Nigerian singer, Asake, is bigger and successful than all the musicians in Ghana, including him.
In a conversation with Serwaa Amihere on X-Space last Wednesday, August 23, 2023, the ‘Taking Over’ hitmaker indicated that, Asake who is known for his hit songs such as; Lonely at the top, Amapiano, Bandana amongst several others, has become relevant globally because he ‘listens’ to Olamide, who is the YBNL label boss, a label the Nigerian crooner is signed unto.
In the words of the controversial crooner, “No Ghanaian artiste has even made it like Asaake. Don’t even bring up the Asake point. Not even me [Shatta Wale], nobody, so don’t even bring that. Don’t bring the Asake name.”
Shatta’s comment, has sparked heated debates and conversations in the Ghanaian music fraternity, with some fans disagreeing with him.
