Shatta Wale, Ghanaian singer, has hailed award-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy and proven that he has no ill feelings towards him.
Taking many by surprise, Shatta Wale took to Snapchat to give the singer his flowers for the imprint he is making on African music globally.
It is no longer news that Burna Boy has been making Nigerians and Africans proud with his numerous record-breaking achievement.
Shatta decided to give him a special shout-out and hailed him for killing the world.
“Laad Gad my friend who was to be and no more my friend is killing the world – Even tho we don’t talk, am so happy to see him succeed!!? Shouts to Burna you burning it…. Love”.
Recall that the Grammy award winner had challenged Shatta Wale to a one on one fight, after his rant about Nigerian artistes being promoted in Ghana but the gesture was not reciprocated.
Burna Boy took to his Instagram story to speak against the agenda of separation between Nigeria and Ghana while challenging 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.”
In a swift response, Shatta Wale revealed he was ready to meet and have a fist cuff with Burna Boy.
He wrote, “I double dare you @Burnaboy. In fact I 10x dare you. This no be fight just lyrical. Like you go sing song. #lyricalchampion. Don’t let anyone tell you that I want to use you for hype because you know money hasn’t been a problem from day one I met you. Don’t forget yourself so soon.”
He added: “Oh @Burnaboy says he wants a 1 on 1 …ok..let’s do this Accra Sports Stadium. I just call shots. If you be man! Don’t come sing your song let’s do freestyle!! Ghana – Nigeria. I am f**king ready!
However, in his response, Burna Boy said that he could easily make the rapper’s life a living hell.
In a deleted post on his Instagram story, Burna Boy wrote, “This guy thinks I have time. @shattawalenima this ain’t 8mile! No be rap battle.
“It’s a fist battle like the type real men do. We can do it anywhere you want; behind closed doors or in stadium for the world to see.
“Stop acting like you don’t know i’ve been trynna set this up since january last year. Consider this an easy way out for you because I could easily make your life a living hell anywhere you go outside Ghana.
“You know I got more money than all your godfathers combined. “Fool wants to come and sing rubbish. I’m trynna see ur teeth and blood on the floor boy. You talking about singing. Joker.” (sic)
