Peace FM’s Presenter Akwasi Aboagye is expected to head to the Police Monday morning to make a formal complaint against self-acclaimed dance hall king Shatta Wale, after the latter threatened him publicly on radio.
What sounded initially like a joke by Shatta Wale for many listeners of Peace FM’s entertainment review show last Saturday while he was being interviewed, turned out to be ‘serious business’ for the award winning artist when he expressed his anger against Akwasi Aboagye for asking the Board of the Ghana Music Awards not to nominate him for an award this year due to his inconsistency.
There is an ongoing huge debate in the entertainment industry – whether or not the board of Ghana Music Award should nominate Shatta Wale for this year’s award scheme.
Akwasi Aboagye on his show a fortnight ago said he had realized over the years is that Shatta wale was not consistent. One moment he says one thing, the next moment he says otherwise – contradicting what he said earlier.
“I love him. I love his personality and how he carries himself. But I think organizers of Vodafone Ghana Music Award should turn him down. They shouldn’t give him nomination. I think in recent times he’s one of the few that has excelled in terms of showbiz and I like him for that, but on principle he’s not consistent” Kwasi Aboagye noted.
He urged Shatta Wale to come out clear without hiding behind his fans to make his case better to enable anyone mount a strong defense for him.
“What I think is that if Shatta Wale can come out clear and say that it’s him who’s submitting and not the fans asking him to do so that will be cool.”
“The next minute he will come back and say it was his fans who said they want it, so for that simple reason, I think Charterhouse should turn him down” Kwasi Aboagye stated.
But these comments by the Presenter irked the musician and so when he was called on the show to clarify issues about his patching up with his colleague musician Samini, Shatta Wale seized the opportunity to express his anger at Akwasi Aboagye for his uncomplimentary comments.
“You Akwasi Aboagye you don’t know how angry I am with you. I am very very angry. When have I said I needed an award, why do you always talk negatively about me when you are on radio? I have my eyes on you” Shatta Wale fumed.
However the Presenter didn’t take Shatta’s pronouncement lightly and stated on radio that he will make a formal complaint to the police against the dancehall king for fear of his life.
