Shatta Wale once again stirred a hot storm of controversy days ago when he ranted during one of his performances that Ghana is a village and looking the country up on Google would only confirm that.
Wale was as usual complaining about the unfair treatment he believes Ghanaians dump on him when he passed the comment.
After he started receiving backlash he tried to turn it into a political issue, claiming he said Ghana is a village due to the huge number of problems plaguing the country.
Despite his attempted explanation, many Ghanaians have lambasted him for his position, with the latest being gospel singer Lenny Akpadie.
Speaking on Kasapa Fm, he completely tore into Wale for his comments dubbing Ghana as a village.
According to him if Ghana is a village then Shatta Wale comes from a ‘hole’.
“If Ghana is a village then you’re a villager. Ghana as a whole is divided into regions and he comes from one of the regions because the regions are also divided into districts and constituencies. If he says regions are below village level then when it gets to his [Shatta Wale] hometown, it may be a hole.” Akpadie said on Kasapa Entertainment.
Akpadie added that he sees himself as a bigger artist than Shatta Wale because he’s a gospel musician serving the light whilst Shatta Wale is a secular musician serving the darkness.
“I can say on authority that I’m more than Shatta Wale but just that we say ‘light is more than darkness’. I’m doing gospel music and he’s doing worldly music and I am the light of the world..,”
“Any gospel musician who is doing gospel music with the spirit of God in him, there are fake and real gospel artistes so the one who is real is more than the secular musician that is why I am saying that I am more than Shatta Wale. The gospel musician who is doing gospel music with the Spirit of God backing him can’t be compared to a secular artist. You can’t compare light and darkness. Undisputedly Secular music is darkness so once the songs don’t carry the weight and the power of God. Shatta Wale calls himself the King on the street but I call myself the King in the Kingdom of God.”
