Cartel Big J of Praye Music fame has hit hard at Shatta Wale for disrespecting Ghanaian musicians and tagging them as being poor.
In a long post sighted by Zionfelix.net, Cartel Big J otherwise known as Praye Tietia advised Shatta Wale to respect the people who sacrificed to pave the way and build the music industry for him and others to join.
According to him, Shatta Wale cannot be among the top 10 richest musicians in Nigeria despite his unending noise of being rich and tagging others as poor musicians.
He stated that Nigerian musicians, Davido and Wizkid, who are part of the richest musicians in Africa won’t disrespect their predecessors like he [Shatta Wale] is doing.
A disappointed Big J cautioned Shatta Wale to stop talking anyhow by looking down on others.
He argued a lot of musicians in the country are happy and content with what they have so he should stop disrespecting and ridiculing them.
“Bro! @shattawalenima Many are those before you who sacrificed a lot to build an industry for all of us to join. The Music industry years ago took blood, sweat, passion and pure talent to entertain Ghanaians for love and country. Legends like @reggierockstone and others sacrificed to pave the way for us in hiplife and afrobeat, including people who sacrificed and groomed you Bandana for absolutely nothing.
“You rich pass all of us, yooo wakaa yati but i can assure you your so called riches won’t make top 10 list of rich musicians even in our neighbouring Nigeria here norr sef, so bro enough of the disrespect to Ghanaian artistes, producers, DJs and the entire industry you came to meet!” he wrote on Instagram.
Cartel Big J added: “Many artistes are very comfortable but they don’t need to brag and disrespect others like you do. Davido and Wizkid are two of the richest musicians in Africa but they don’t find the need to disrespect their predecessors! You dey embarrass yourself and Ghanaian musicians to the world.
no personal beef here just common sense and morals being shared. We’ve had it with the gross disrespect and ridiculing at any given chance. Brag all you want but learn to respect people who have made scarifices for you to “eat” today! There were people before you and there will be people after you. We are grown men and women who also have families, you don’t open your mouth and spew anything anyhow.”
His comment follows Shatta Wale’s comment on UTV’s United Showbiz program that all musicians in the country are poor due to improper structures.
