He indicated that Sarkodie discouraged the idea when he discussed with him but it was rather Patapaa’s ‘One corner’ which inspired him to produce ‘Freedom’.
Shatta Wale admonished Ghanaians to support talents and stop the habit of discouraging artistes. He said:
“I did it for Sarkodie and the inspiration came from Patapaa. God has blessed Patapaa. Ghanaians love some kind of culture and if you do it for them they would relate. He brought another trend in music.
“Ghanaians will be the best musicians in the world if we support each other. Now Patapaa is playing shows in Liberia. Where are all those against him? Ghanaians should learn and not bring people down”.
On the motive behind the 3-minute ‘Freedom’ song, Shatta Wale said, “the song is to motivate people to love and promote the Ghanaian culture abroad.”
