Ghanaian dancehall star, Shatta Wale has set aside his beef with Nigerian Afrobeats superstar, Burna Boy, to acknowledge the African Giant’s success.
He took to his official Snapchat account to hail Burna Boy despite the fact that they are no in longer in talking terms.
The Grammy-winning Nigerian act has had a successful year, from shutting down show to releasing an album with all songs topping music charts.
Shatta sent a shoutout to Odogwu and said he is happy for the ‘Dangote’ crooner even amidst their beef.
”Laad Gad my friend who was to be and no more my friend is killing the world – Even tho we don’t talk, am so happy to see him succeed!!? Shouts to Burna you burning it…. Love”, he wrote.
Their rift started in December 2021, when Shatta Wale threw a shade at Nigerian artistes after selling out the Accra Sports Stadium for his concert.
“Do you know that majority of people in the Ghana music industry are fools? They told me that I won’t be able to fill my stadium. I don’t look up to any stupid Nigerian artiste. I look up to my fans. F**k Nigeria.”
Fast-forward to December, Wizkid also had a sold-out concert in Ghana, where he talked about Africa being united.
However, In January, Burna Boy reacted to Shatta’s rant by taking to his Instagram story to condemn any attempt to divide African nations.
He wrote, “Pushing this Agenda of separation between our beautiful African Nations is a grave disservice to the generations coming after us. It goes against everything I stand for as a Man and as an unapologetic pan Africanist.
‘‘Therefore, if Shatta or anyone has a personal problem with me, I’m still open to fighting one on one and squashing it after. The same way I have always been, nobody will ruin the unity we continuously try to build for a stronger and better Africa”.
Shatta who didn’t hesitate to react, double dared the Grammy winner to a one-on-one challenge in a stadium in Accra, Ghana.
In his response, Burna Boy insisted on engaging him in a psychical fight like “real men do.”
