Afro pop/dance hall Supremo, Samini, has offered pieces of advice to his perceived enemy Shatta Wale in the case of Charterhouse dragging the self-proclaimed dance hall king to court over disparaging remarks he made in some of his records.
According to Samini, instead of releasing more diss tracks, Shatta ought to apologise to the events company adding that he will initiate moves to have the MUSIGA to intervene so the case could be settled out of court. Samini made the revelation on the late night celebrity show hosted by Giovani on ETV.
On why he taunted Shatta on social media, the Iskoki hit maker explained he assumed the reported court threat by Charterhouse was another cooked story circulating on social media platforms till subsequent events proved that the threat was real.
Delving deep on the cause of the perceived rift between himself and the Korle Gono godfather, Samini indicated that he personally did not know Shatta Wale till he heard him on one of Obour’s songs and eventually featured Shatta on one of his tracks although they’ve never been close friends as portrayed by the Shatta movement leader.
Samini said he had on many occasions charged Shatta to provide evidence of he sabotaging or undermining him in relation to shows held in the country involving international acts even going further to pledge compensation should evidence be provided.
Unwittingly disclosing perhaps one of the reasons why there might be bad blood between the two, Samini expressed anger about a song Shatta released labelling him gay. The Dagati strong man said the reference was defamatory since he is the father of 4 children. “The gay insinuation cast a bad light on his me”.
He said anyone who assumes that Shatta’s downfall will be his gain is wrong as he has been active in the music industry since 2004 and has gained wealth and assets such as cars, houses and businesses.
According to the ‘Zongode’ man, although Shatta might have legitimate concerns about the way artistes in the country are treated, the approach was wrong adding no individual artiste can survive the onslaught of Charterhouse especially when there is possibility of the events company having their way.
Charterhouse is suing the musician for defamation and is seeking damages of ten million Ghana cedis.
