Back In The News: Shatta Wale Says “No” To Charter House
About a year ago, Shatta Wale had some grudges with Charter House; who are also the organizers of the annual Ghana Music Awards! The grudge came as a result of Shatta Wale accusing Charter House for not being fair with their operations regarding the Awards given to artists for their hard work and impacts on the Ghanaian music industry. It took an ugly turn when Shatta Wale composed a diss song condemning the Charter House and calling them pretty awful names. The shocking part was; Shatta Wale rather enjoyed fame as a result of that, and he has been benefiting a lot from that to date!
The Ghana Music Awards Night is finally here again and just few hours to the BIG Event, Shatta Wale posted another controversial statement on his facebook wall! Even though it may seem Shatta Wale attacked Charter House because he did not get an award, I do believe he is more concerned about how they treat artists and how they are selective about the kind of artists they (Charter House) treat right. Upon reading what he wrote on facebook barely an hour ago, I think Shatta Wale is not all about the awards afterall, but fighting for his dignity as an artists and for his fellow artists.
Is Shatta Wale risking his “Possible” award(s) or he is trying to put Charter House in a tight corner?? What I mean is, If they dont give him an award tonite, is the public going to say its because of what Shatta Wale wrote on his page? OR, Charter House will be forced to give him an award because the public will wont take it kind and relate the whole thing to what Shatta Wale wrote on his facebook wall? I dont know if ya’ll feeling me on this drift. But Read Shatta Wale’s post below and weigh both options…. (THIS IS MY TAKE ON THE ISSUE… FEEL FREE TO VOICE OUT YOUR OPINIONS IN THE COMMENT BOX)
