Ghanaian dancehall artist Shatta Wale has lashed out in response to the statement released by Bizzle Entertainment, the organizers of his cancelled UK concert.
In a fiery social media post, Shatta Wale vehemently defended his stance, dismissing the claims made by the event organizers.
Known for his unapologetic and assertive nature, Shatta Wale didn’t hold back as he addressed the situation.
He emphasized that his disappointment stemmed from the misconception that he could be treated like “every other artist.” The self-proclaimed African Dancehall King highlighted his extensive business endeavors, claiming that the purported £20,000 the event organisers wanted to pay him was insignificant compared to his financial standing, especially, when he spent more than that on the school fees and others expenses of his daughter.
Shatta Wale in the comment he made on Facebook further revealed that his decision to be a part of the concert was primarily to connect with his loyal fanbase, the Shatta Movement (SM) fans, and not for the meager compensation offered.
The artist made a bold assertion, indicating that the organizers were aware they couldn’t meet his fee, stating, “They know they can’t pay me,” and emphasised that it is the main reason why he does not really travel out of the country.
Shatta Wale’s comments come in response to Bizzle Entertainment’s press release, where the event organizers expressed surprise and disappointment at the sudden cancellation of the concert. They emphasized their adherence to the contractual obligations, including an initial 50% payment to Shatta Wale’s management, highlighting their commitment to hosting the anticipated event.
