Nigerian music star Burna Boy has waded into the controversy stirred by Ghanaian dancehall musician, Shatta Wale over the past few days.
Shatta Wale during his recent concert dubbed ‘Freedom Wave’ said “do you know that majority of people in the Ghana music industry are fools?
“They told me that I won’t be able to fill my stadium. I don’t look up to any stupid Nigeria artiste I look up to my fans. Fʋck Nigeria”.
The comment has since sparked a debate online but Shatta Wale remains relentless though the likes of Stonebwoy, Wizkid, Omar Sterling and others have chosen peace to address the issue.
The latest to join the debate is Burna Boy who is willing to face Shatta Wale squarely.
Burna Boy took to his Instagram story to speak against the agenda of separation between Nigeria and Ghana, as he challenged Shatta Wale to a duel.
“The Ye crooner wrote, “Dem dey play South African, American and UK music also for Ghana but na Nigeria own be issue. Something fishy is smelling.
“Pushing this agenda of separation between our beautiful African nations is a grave disservice to the generations coming after us, and it goes against everything I stand for as a man and as an unapologetic pan africanist.
“Therefore, if Shatta or anyone has a personal problem with me, I’m still open to fight 1 on 1 and squash it after; the same way I’ve always been. Nobody will ruin the unity we continuously try to build for a stronger and better Africa.” (sic)
