Fastest Rapper Sarkodie has set social media buzzing following the release of his ‘diss track’ which fires salvos into the camp of acerbic tongue dancehall artiste Shatta Wale.
In his new ‘diss’ song titled “Advice”, Michael Owusu Addo known in showbiz as Sarkodie doled out loads of insults to Shatta Wale, cautioning the dancehall artiste to be wary and as well respect other musicians hard work in the Industry.
The three-minute verse is laid on the instrumental of Joey B’s hit song “Stables”.
Sarkodie put the beat to good use on the freestyle which got featured on BBC News Coverage.
According to Sarkodie, Shatta Wale knows nothing, but only enjoys tarnishing the hard-earned reputation of other musicians. In the song, Sarkodie addresses the character who he claims is fond of discrediting other people and describes reserved people as not smart.
At a part of the song, he urged Shatta Wale to stop the foolery and crave for social media attention and rather focus on his career.
He also stated in the song that he has always advised the character but he does not heed his advice.
The controversy of beef between the two musicians sparked after Shatta Wale in an interview on an Accra based radio station accused Sarkodie of hyping Nigerian artistes and neglecting Ghanaian artistes.
He disclosed that in 2014 when he featured Sarkordie on “Dancehall Commando” he was expecting the rapper to sponsor a video shot for the song since he was broke but that never happened.
Shatta without any response from the rapper, during his album launch tour in Kumasi, again branded Sarkodie and Kwaw Kese as being poor.
Ghanaian Actor, Van Vicker on the other hand has expressed worry over the seeming controversy between the two musicians.
The actor believes the beef between the two is needles and called for peace between the musicians.
Since the release of diss track, a number of entertainment personalities, Captain Planet, D-Black, Edem, Ponobiom, Bisa Kdei, Peace Hyde, Kwaw Kese, Shatta Wale’s buddy Pope Skinny and a host of others, have reacted on social media commending the rapper.
