Shatta Wale, a divisive dancehall artist, believes that multiple award-winning rapper Sarkodie should have been more well-known than Nigerian artist Wizkid.
Shatta Wale claims that Sarkodie is one of the Ghanaian artists that puts money into his craft and expects him to surpass Wizkid in popularity.
“You see someone like Sarkodie, he should have been bigger than Wizkid. You see what Sarkodie even did. Sarkodie is putting money into his craft in terms of videos and everything to make it perfectly right but he is still not there,” Shatta lamented in a recent interview on Joy FM’s ShowbizAtoZ.
Shatta Wale further noted that Sarkodie had previously missed opportunities to profit from his connections with prominent Senegalese-American musical producer and CEO of Konvict Music Akon.
The SM Boss thought Sarkodie had the ideal opportunity to seize the initiative and grow.
“If Sarkodie is doing it and I am watching him and he is still not making it. What he is doing, he is alone and he is using his money to do that…especially when Akon mentioned Sarkodie’s name. He should have been there but I could also say that he didn’t even take advantage of it,” Shatta Wale added.
