Ghanaians sometimes mock the Zylofon signed dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, for being unable to compose proper dancehall songs but instead releasing ‘wack’ ‘jama’ songs.
However, Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Jupitar has supported his colleague, Shatta Wale to continue doing wack music as Ghanaians are claiming if only such chaff songs he’s been releasing brings money into his pocket.
Jupitar who appears to be standing behind Shatta Wale stated in an interview that Shatta Wale should not mind those people who are talking negatively against his songs.
He added that Ghanaian dancehall artistes are few so there is the need for them to stand together as one and support themselves.
“We are just a few, four or five people so the best we can do is try to acknowledge or push ourselves. There are so many ways to success and Shatta has done his part.
“I’m proud of my brother Shatta Wale. Shatta is a big brand here in Ghana. So if Shatta is producing weak lyrics, weak songs and people are still buying and it shoots him up to the billboard then that’s a win for him.
“When you really plan to put up a song it hardly gets the response you expect. I do agree the level we are in our industry is more of jamming, it is the trend and he is capitalising on it and if it’s working for him, I’ll encourage him to do more chaff then, he should do more rubbish.” Jupitar said.
