Shatta Wale has been in the news recently for the very good reasons. After the beef with Criss Waddle, came the warning from the dancehall king that he will not entertain haters in his Friday April 29 Album launch. Now, the ‘Am Ok’ hit-maker is telling us how good he feels being referred to as a ‘local champion musician’.
Shatta Wale has on several occasions been referred to as a local champion musician because he only holds shows here in Ghana but do not go on International tours and concerts. This was made more pronounced as since last year when Sarkodie and Stonebwoy have been touring the International countries and are still not back in Ghana.
However, Shatta Wale has admitted that he loves the tag. He said this while speaking to Sammy Flex on Pluzz Fm.
Responding to how he feels when referred to as a local champion, the ‘kakai’ hit singer said he loves the tag because ‘even as a local champion, he is the only musician in Ghana who has 4 cars and has built 2 houses.’ Explaining further, he said,
“To those musicians you’ve been seeing going on tours, they don’t make any money when they go out there. They are just living a lie life more or less faking to the fans. The local champion is making money way more than the so called international acts. Even in Ghana, I take 150 million, 200 million and even more. They go out there and don’t even make anything close to the amounts I take here per show, so why should i worry myself being referred to as a local champion.” he asked.
Not long ago, Shatta Wale has also been accused of engaging in magic or voodoo which has brought him extraordinary wealth and prosperity. However, the Dancehall King has refuted such claims, saying his achievements are purely products of his hard work.
