When Shatta Wale claimed that Sarkodie ought to have outperformed Burna Boy and became more well-known than Wizkid, Sadiq Abdulai Abu, the previous CEO of 3Music, questioned why Burna Boy could not surpass him.
Shatta Wale asserted, while addressing a variety of topics relating to show business in general, that Sarkodie ought to be performing alongside well-known singers on an international platform given the amount of time and effort he puts into his work.
He firmly asserted that Wizkid, whose persona is well-known around the world, would have been on par with Africa’s most decorated rapper, but regrettably that is not the case.
Sarkodie is one example; he ought to have been more well-known than Wizkid, according to Wale.
I see that Sarkodie invests a lot of money into his trade in terms of videos and everything to make it absolutely right, but he is still not there, he remarked when asked to elaborate.
According to Sadiq, who was present in the studios during an interview with George Quaye on Joy FM, Shatta Wale should have been greater than Burna Boy, who is currently one of the top performers in Africa and beyond.
