Rex Omar about local champions Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale
“I am happy for what has happened in Nigeria, actually am very happy…Because we have too many local champions in this country.
When your son is not doing well in his class and he comes home and you always pampering him, when he goes out there then he will see the real fishes in there, it’s good and a wake-up call for all of us”
He added that Nigerian artistes are humble. Also, they concentrate on winning the fans from the streets before thinking about winning fans on the stage. Meanwhile, Ghanaian artistes are too proud and they don’t even want to play local shows.
