Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale, who is currently in the US, met American rapper and businessman 50 Cent at the G-Unite office in New York.
He posed for a photo op with the famous American rapper. The details of their meeting are yet to be made known.
The ‘Dancehall King’ hit singer disclosed in an interview with ‘This Is 50’ that he constantly has issues with artistes in the Ghanaian music industry because they are jealous of him.
“I don’t really beef with people. People are kind of jealous of how I’m rising. In Ghana, the industry is not like in America because we have a whole lot of problems in Ghana that the artistes are not fighting for in terms of getting our royalties to be paid, in terms of we getting shows and the artistes are not getting paid well,” he explained.
“I’m the only artiste who makes sure artistes get paid and we get rich. I could boldly say I am making money more than every other artiste in Ghana all because I stand up, I really want things to be done well for the industry. That’s how come I get these beefs everywhere because people think I talk too much but I don’t talk too much. I talk for people to see the practical aspect of everything I am doing,” the dancehall artiste noted.
Shatta Wale was quick to fault the media and bloggers for constantly peddling negative stories about him. According to him, he does a lot of charity work that people don’t talk about.
