Decorated Dancehall act, Shatta Wale has shared his side of the story about his absence at the 2022 edition of the ‘Ghana Party in the Park’ in the UK.

Shatta Wale had been billed to headline the 2022 ‘Ghana Party in the Park’ in the UK. However, a day to the show, the “On God” hitmaker revealed in an Instagram post that he and his team were not being provided for.

“You can put up a stage but can’t cater for “artiste team”..are you ok? If Ibe mic and stage plenty deh Ghana and money deh here too fuckkk!!” Shatta Wale wrote.

A few moment after Shatta Wale’s post, the event organisers also issued a disclaimer to event goers stating that Shatta Wale and Kofi Kinaata, previously booked for the show will not be performing.

In an interview with blogger Attractive Mustapha, the C.E.O of of Akwaaba Group, the company in charge of organising the event Dennis Tawiah, revealed Shatta Wale made some monetary demands which could not be met at the time.

“A demand was made at a very late stage and we wanted to discuss it with his representatives. It was a monetary demand. It came in exactly a day to the show,” Mr Tawiah stated in the interview.

Responding to Dennis Taiwah’s claims, Shatta Wale explained that the Akwaaba UK team failed to meet demands he had made from the onset of their conversation for him to headline the show.

According to Shatta Wale in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM, he was looking forward for him and the organisers to collaborate on the show.

“I wanted it to be a GOG in conjunction with Akwaaba UK. So the whole title was going to be ‘Akwaaba UK in conjunction with Shatta Movement GOG experience’ and we accepted that.”

He continued;

“Secondly, I told him that he should try and get visas for my team, my team is big but we came to a conclusion where I could just take four of them with me including me making five and we agreed on that too. What I told him basically and vividly was that it’s time we Ghanaians start supporting our industry gatekeepers and coaches.

This is a show that I would want to come and perform for him for free, I don’t want it to charge him any money. I want him to take all the money that he’s going to make from the show and just make sure to get these two things done for me.”

Shatta Wale explained further that while he was waiting for confirmation on his demands, he saw a flyer advertising him as the headline act of the event.

“I was there and I saw a flyer featuring a whole of artists including my information and I called him and told him this isn’t what we spoke about. When I was in America, there was no team with me, I explained to you vividly about how you guys have organised the show for a long time and this is how I want us to go because I have never been to Ghana party in the park before and this is going to be my first time and people are going to be excited about it and he was like it was his team and he forgot about that side…,” he stated.

The ‘Shatta Movement’ boss reveals that as at Thursday, July, 14, he was still asking for visas from Dennis for his 4-member team which was agreed on during negotiations.

“I was like okay then lets think of my team and for my visas and for the past three weeks I’ve been asking Dennis when my team will get their visas because I need the team to be there with me so we can have a beautiful show. could you believe that, after the back and forth, the Thursday I came to you and left your studio, that was the last time I called him and told him to try and make this thing possible because I can’t leave Ghana without my team,” he stated.

The most popular South African hip hop artists

Many hip-hop artists from South Africa have been huge because of their versatility and pure artistry which are rooted in the country’s culture. Some of them have also collaborated with artists from the United States which is the focal point of the industry. Here are some of the biggest names in the South African hip-hop community and how they made an impact on the scene.

Cassper Nyovest

A decade into his career, Cassper has become one of the most popular artists in South Africa. He is mostly known as a rapper but he is a well-rounded person because he also dabbles into music production and is the man behind the Family Tree Records label. Cassper is an influential figure in the South African music industry and at only 31 years of age, he has more years to improve on his legacy in South Africa.

Apart from his time as a hip-hop artist, Cassper has also dabbled in other industries. Crypto casino site Bitcasino and Cassper have established a relationship with each other as he functions as an ambassador and a popular figure that spreads the good word about crypto. That is just one part of his business outside music but he never forgets where he came from.

Cassper has multiple big hits and his albums have been well-received by the public and critics alike. His most well-known project is probably his third studio album called Thuto back in 2018. Some of his critically-acclaimed projects are A.M.N and Sweet and Short 2.0. These albums were strong examples of the peak performance of a South African artist.

Nasty C

Making his debut in 2013, Nasty C was a young musician that had immense talent. As his career has progressed, he has earned tons of recognition in South Africa and he has even become popular around the world with some of his songs. His song titled There They Go was released in 2020 which was his first track under the Def Jam label and became popular worldwide.

Nasty C has always been a talented artist and that was evident when he was still young. As he grew, his skills continued to prove that he deserves the recognition. Now, he is one of the biggest names in the country, regardless of what industry is being discussed.

eMTee

When eMTee was a youngster, he was always talking about how much he wanted to be a musician. That was enough to make him take part in talent shows at his school which continued to happen into his late teens. He kept working hard to be recognised and he got a big break when he appeared on Channel O’s show called HeadRush. He was part of a rap trio called the African Trap Movement afterwards before he embarked on his solo career.

In 2015, he released his debut single called Roll Up which ended up becoming one of the biggest songs in the country. With Roll Up serving as one of the top singles of his debut album, it was a good start for his career. The record called Avery continued to spread through the radio airwaves in the country and it eventually jumpstarted eMTee’s career into the forefront of the South African hip hop scene.

South African rappers will continue to grow

South Africa has become a hotbed for hip-hop artists. They have proven that they can create high-quality tracks and they have showcased their versatility as well. They can be amazing artists but they can also be present in other roles and industries. Just take a look at the partnership between Bitcasino and Cassper to see how much these artists have shown their popularity and reach.
