Dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale can’t claim to be a better artist than colleague Stonebwoy because he (Wale) “can’t even play live band for 10 minutes,” says the latter.
Stonebwoy told JOYS NEWS’ MzGee, Wale’s claim to have “murdered” him is untrue.
“Shatta Wale can never murder me, he’s never lyrically good like me and he knows that. I murdered him in 2010 at Labadi and won a motorbike. I sold that motorbike after some months, so he knows,” explained Stonebwoy.
“Lyrically, I’m the baddest in Africa, reggae artiste lyrically the baddest. The most internationally known so Shatta don’t yob or else when we open the stage, you know. You can’t even play live band for 10 minutes and keep on so don’t yob.”
The two artists have been going against each other – especially in the past couple of years over who is better, has a bigger following and international acclaim.
The rivalry between the two artists has extended to their fan base.
In early 2018, when Wale joined Stonebwoy as a label mate on Zylofon Music, fans wondered what would happen to the rivalry.
“Right now, you hear say people dey think; ‘so what you go do Stonebwoy?’. You see Stonebwoy, for here [Zylofon] he be my brother but for town he be my enemy.” stated Wale to his cheering fans when he was officially unveiled.
