Ghanaian-British singer, rapper and songwriter, Nana Richard Abiona, known in showbiz as Fuse has chastised Shatta Wale over some comments the Ghanaian dancehall made about Nigerian artistes.
A couple of weeks ago, Shatta Wale blasted Nigerian stating that Ghana has always helped them in terms of promoting their music but Ghanaian artistes in return don’t get the same support from their Nigerians brothers.
He expressed strong emotions after he was told that he will not get a lot of people to attend his concert.
“They said I won’t be able to fill my own stadium, I don’t need any Nigerian artist to sell out Ghana’s stadium, f**k Nigerian artist”, Shatta Wale said.
However, Fuse ODG believes Shatta Wale went the extra mile with some of the comments he maee.
Speaking to TV 3, the ‘Antena’ crooner said Shatta’s comments were unnecessary and alarming because there is a bigger battle they all need to fight which is how to promote Ghanaian music better.
According to Fuse ODG, the most important thing is to support each other rather than parading unnecessary tension between the two countries.
“I feel some of the things he said wer unnecessary and alarming but I can understand where he is coming from in terms of us not getting the same support from our brothers and sisters in Nigeria. But you know, he could have definitely put it better so I don’t agree with him. All these are not necessary, there is a bigger battle. We need to support each other”, Fuse said.
He announced a project part of which will see that new and young artistes are signed in other to give them the maximum audience to survive in the music industry.
“We are signing new artistes, and then, I feel like we need more Ghanaians coming through and you know, in Nigerian, it’s like every day there is a new artist coming through so for Ghana, we need that kind of support to be able to put an upcoming artist through that kind of channel so they can also have that kind of audience as well. I’m on it.”
