Samini Is A Poor Legend – Shatta Wale
FOR those who do not understand why Charles Nii Armah Mensah known in showbiz as Shatta Wale behaves the way he does in the music industry and still has high charges, he has the answer.
According to him, unlike how legendary Samini saw music as just entertainment and now leaving in poverty, he sees it as a business so he does not joke with money.
Speaking in an interview with Metro TV’s Paul Adom Otchere on Good Evening Ghana, he said, “I know it is sad for him to open up about his situation now and he thinks it is a disgrace for him to tell the world he is broke”.
“I always tell people that there is always grace in disgrace, when you go through something share it, that’s how I share my life story with my fans and they love me so much. Gone are the days we were talking about Samini but nobody is talking about Samini now and I feel so bad,
“That is a legend. Samini tried to put Ghana on the map but people used him so much. Samini was a great musician but if most musicians like him will come out and tell the story about the industry and how it goes like, people like Sarkodie and people you’re mentioning wouldn’t be behaving like the way they’re behaving in the industry.” he added.
He also touched on how some musicians from Zimbabwe are trying hard to ‘beef’ him but he has no intentions of responding unless there will be financial rewards.
“I will not give in to what they want because for them their royalty structures work so giving them that chance will benefit them more and I am also looking a what I will make out of it.
“As for beef, it not a problem, I have done some with Samini, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie etc, it is no big deal but what is in it for me is the most important,” he said.
