Captain of the Black Stars Andre Dede Ayew has disclosed publicly that Ghanaian Hip-Pop Legend Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known as “Shatta Wale” is his favourite musician.
“Shatta Wale is my favourite. I enjoy his songs everywhere I am. I know how to sing most of his songs” he amitted adding that there are also good musicians around like Stonebowy.
Just like the heydays of Charles K. Fosu – Daddy Lumba and Nana Acheampong in the early 90s, the younger generation has also created camps and fun clubs for Shatta Wale and Stonebowy due to the great love people have for their songs.
As to who remains the best between the two music icons continous to creat tension among people in various quarters including schools.
No wonder a serious banter ensued between the two on stage during the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA). Shatta Wale and Stonebowy were later arrested and charged at the law court for their misbehaviour.
It is a fact that the BHIM Nation founder, Stonebowy has won VGMA Hip-Pop Artiste of the Year more than the Shatta Movement (SM) giant but it appears Wale’s songs is more popular globally and enjoy much playing time on most radio and TV networks.
With this vital endorsement from a prominent player like Dede Ayew who captained the Black Satellites to win for the first time the FIFA U-20 Youth Championship in Egypt, Shatta Wale might feel proud but the argument over who remains the best will never cease.
