Shatta Wale has finally spoken on why he did not release his Gift of God album, but instead Maali, and why he is now focused on his upcoming Afrobeats album, Konekt.
The African dancehall king on Twitter Space with fans revealed that, his now-cancelled Gift of God album after keeping it for three years was leaked on digital stores by a Ghanaian.
According to Shatta Wale he was also having difficulty getting international artists like as Beyoncé and others that made him choose to cancel the project and focus on another.
“I couldn’t get some of the features for instance…I was trying my possible best and up till now and to that course and that is why I’m saying when White people come and exploit that’s what the table looks like”
“When Beyoncé wanted to feature me, I swear to God I didn’t wanted to continue that process again….You know why? Because a Ghanaian that followed that thing was coordinating for that thing went all wrongly…… Bey and her team actually wanted me to fly from Ghana with the crew. So like the way i travel with 16 people, 12 people but our Ghanaians with their pressure forced me now I want to feature Beyoncé, now I’m getting problem, now the same Ghanaian person can’t even get me that feature and that was the things that got me pissed with the whole album — Shatta Wale said.
Shatta Wale also explained how some of the tracks from the unreleased album were leaked, saying that a Ghanaian representative connected him with the Nigerians for the album project.
“And then I got some distributors to also get me like a deal in Nigeria and everything was going on proper but before I realized a paper that was supposed to give me to sign so that they can give me an amount of money to shoot my videos which was spoken to TG Omori to shoot my videos… I don’t know what happened but I gave them a list to just test them on how they can keep my songs and that wasn’t the list that I wanted them just to see what will happen but they just leaked those ones which means, the person that connected me to those Nigerians and stuffs……That person is in Ghana and as I’m talking to you now, his house papers I have them bcos of taken his house papers. Me I don’t play like that and i told him that I don’t want to go to court” — He concluded
Many fans have weighed in on the news, with some bringing Bulldog into the equation, blaming the former artist manager of Shatta Wale of leaking the album.
The rationale behind their accusation came to “light” when Bulldog shared some of the tracks and featured artists from the GOG album on Facebook a few months ago following his fight with the SM Boss.
