Rapid News Gh - Shatta wale

Shatta Wale, who described Sarkodie’s appearance on Bob Marley’s new version of Stir It Up as “featuring a ghost,” finally gets a response from Sarkodie. Despite the fact that most people think Shatta Wale’s comment was unfortunate, Sarkodie says he took it as a compliment.

Sarkodie’s appearance on the legendary Bob Marley and the Wailers remake song has been one of Ghana’s biggest musical highlights. Many industry stakeholders, musicians, and members of the general public have expressed their opinions, including Shatta Wale, who described it as “featuring a ghost” during an interview.

During a Twitter Space session, Sarkodie responded to a fan who asked how he felt about Shatta Wale’s comment, saying, “That’s not bad. That’s quite a compliment.”

Sarkodie cautioned his fan base not to lose sight of his achievement as he continued to speak about this historic moment in Ghana’s music history. He thanked them for their support in his career and asked them to look beyond the Sarknative banner to understand what the feature means to every musician and Ghanaian.

“I think the distraction is when something bigger and huge way more than us happen because it goes beyond Sarkodie. This is not a project by Sarkodie. This is not a project by Shatta Wale. This is not a project by Shatta Wale. This is for everyone who can benefit from it. So we don’t have to derail the goal by taking it somewhere we don’t want it to go.”

Stir It Up by Bob Marley and the Wailers featuring Sarkodie was released on January 20, 2023. It is currently the most popular music video on YouTube.

Sarkodie delivered rap verses in English and Twi, a local dialect of Ghana’s Akan ethnic tribe, of which Sarkodie is an indigene.
