Ghanaian dancehall musician, Ara-B has alleged that he was sabotaged by self-proclaiming dancehall King of Ghana, Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Armah Mensah at the just-ended Rapperholic Concert.
The former Shatta Movement sympathizer indicated that he was billed to perform at the 217 edition of Sarkodie’s Rapperholic Concert but Shatta Wale found a way to get him not to perform.
In giving details as to what transpired, the musician revealed that Shatta Wale and his crew walked past him and his bodyguard on their way backstage. He went on to say that the “Taking Over” hitmaker and his crew hurled insults at them (Ara-B and his bodyguard).
He revealed he was then ‘stopped’ from mounting the stage because it is alleged that Shatta Wale indicated that he was not going to mount the same stage if Ara-B was allowed to perform on it.
Ara-B added that he left quietly but his manager, Bulldog was very upset by what had happened on the night. He added that Bulldog was however not present at the Accra International Conference Center because he was under the weather. He took to his social media handle to express his disappointment and threw some shade at Shatta Wale by calling him a ‘Hood Rat’.
There has been some rivalry brewing between Shatta Wale and Ara-B and both musicians have recorded ‘diss’ songs to trade jabs at one another. Earlier this year, Ara-B was arrested by the Odokor Police after it was reported that he had insulted Shatta Wale’s girlfriend and baby mama, Diamond Michelle Gbagonah was popularly known as Shatta Michy.
