“No Ghanaian artiste can fill Accra Stadium, I only filled half” – Shatta Wale speaks on Wizkid’s show controversy


Ghanaian dancehall artist, Shatta Wale has said that no Ghanaian artiste can fill the Accra Sports Stadium with fans for a music show.

Shatta shared his mind on the controversy around Wizkid’s Accra Sports Stadium show, where the singer was booked to perform at an event by Live Hub Entertainment, however, he did not show up.

Meanwhile, the turn out of the event has got social media users talking. Some netizens have been criticizing Wizkid and the event organizers for not being able to fill the stadium.

Whilst the conversation is ongoing, a video of Shatta Wale speaking about artistes filling the stadium has surfaced. In the video he said “As someone with experience, I said that Ghana here, nobody has done that kind of show”.

“Unless it’s a political rally, if it’s not NPP or NDC or maybe Pastor Mensah Otabil or Pastor Chris, I am telling you people something, write it down, or Duncan Williams, or Bishop Agyin Asare, or maybe it’s Kotoko and Hearts, we have never had a show like that at the stadium where you can see that the place is filled up for one artiste,” he added.

Speaking about how music shows are done in the stadium, he explained that “every time we fill one side. Sometimes if you go to ask they tell you that the authorities don’t want it that way because they don’t want the theft to be destroyed”.

In the video below, Shatta Wale added he therefore makes sure he enters agreement with the show promoters before accepting shows at the stadium.
