Female dancehall musician, Kaakie, has spoken publicly about an apology rendered to her by Shatta Wale, after the latter hurled insults at her over an award she won in 2013.
Rendered some two years ago, Wale apologised for the invectives he hurled at the young lady after she beat him to an award at the 2013 Ghana Music Awards.
Kaakie, who was good under the year in review, won the award for Reggae Dancehall Song of the Year for the song ‘Tofee Pon Tongue’, much to Wale’s chagrin, who was hoping to win with ‘Shatta City’.
He subsequently took to social media and launched a scathing attack on her person – in a way many thought was uncouth.
He posted: “F*** Kaakie who can’t even write her own music and f*** her smelling p****… I know how they did this. But trust me, we know how to handle this.”
He later apologized – and released a song in July 2013 to validate his plea for forgiveness. She refused to comment on it.
She however broke her silence on the issue this morning during a radio interview.
Kaakie, who just returned from a well patronized show in Gabon, said she thinks the apology lacks an element of sincerity, insisting it feels awkward to go to a place and hear the song being played all over again.
She told Pluzz 89.9 FM ‘s entertainment morning show, AM Pluzz on Friday that a more fitting apology would be for Wale to tell her in the face about how truly sorry he was.
