Welcome to Ghana where most artistes strive on “diss” songs to make waves or stay relevant whiles others ride on the shoulders of these artistes to put their names out there. Some “diss” songs can spike controversy and make you relevant or can easily kill your whole career, thus “Controversy can either make or unmake you”.
We can all attest to the numerous controversies that have been generated amidst our topnotch musicians when it comes to recording of “diss” songs, ranging from our “A List Artistes” to our “Underground Artistes”. Samini, Stonebwoy, Yaa Pono, Criss Waddle, M.anifest, Sarkodie, Strongman, Teephlow, Flowking Stone, Kwaw Kese and obviously the list cannot be a complete one without Shatta Wale.
In a recent online publication “Samini, Stonebwoy, Criss Waddle, Yaa Pono and Kwaw Kese” have been listed as artistes whose careers and brand are supposedly promoted by Shatta Wale through “beefing”. We can all second to the fact that Shatta Wale has had some banter lyrical exchange with the above listed artistes and it’s been quite humorous.
Speaking on this, entertainment pundit and host of Ghana’s social media celebrity talk show “Vibes In 5” Arnold Mensah Elavanyo expressed his objection to that assertion. He vehemently spoke about all the listed artistes as already being at the top and doing very well on their own and did not need nor took Shatta Wale to promote them nor their brands.
Speaking further he noted that beefing Shatta Wale can cause havoc to your career because he does not beef to promote brands but rather to sink or kill brands.
