Controversial dancehall artiste, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, widely known as Shatta Wale, has disclosed how one hit marker, Patapaa Amisty nearly dethroned him in Ghana music.
According to Shatta, he intentionally released his ‘Freedom’ song to counter Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’, which was making waves in Ghana music.
Shatta Wale’s Freedom song has been tagged by popular Takoradi-based music producer as ‘senseless’, judging from the few words the artiste uttered.
Willis Beatz in his analysis insisted that the Ayoo hitmaker just mentioned just few words like ‘you say wetin’ which was composed by Zigi 7years ago.
But Shatta Wale in an interview with Jerry Justice on Adom FM confessed that, he entered studio to record ‘Freedom’ because Patapaa was taking Ghana by storm with his ‘One Corner’.
The Shatta Movement boss revealed that he initially wanted to give the song to the Agona Swedru-based musician, but changed plans later because he, Patapaa got him worried with his single.
“Let me confess today. Patapaa worried me a lot so he made me record the freedom song. I wanted to give the song to him but I changed plans later. I’m saying this and God knows that I am not lying. That is how smart I am,” the dancehall King said.
“Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’ got me asking why God didn’t bring the hit song to Accra but took it to Swedru. Tell Patapaa I love him so much but he nearly killed my career,” Wale said.
