For a decade now since reemerging on the scene, Shatta Wale has been calling himself the ‘dancehall king’. Not everybody agrees with him but that’s the name he has taken for himself nonetheless.
One of those who is definitely not on board with the ‘dancehall king’ name is Gyedu Blay Ambolley.
According to the veteran musician, it’s crazy to think that we can import an entire genre of music from another country and then claim to be kings at it.
Taking a straight jab at Shatta Wale, Ambolley said: “You are still learning how to do dancehall and you want to call yourself dancehall king, then what will the Jamaicans say?”
He made the comments on Hitz Fm.
This could turn really ugly if Wale decides to respond to him…
