In his usual fiery mode, Shatta Wale said he had expected a commentary on his music video from a high-profile personality like Grammy award-winning rapper Jay-Z and not Sadiq after he slammed him for making low standard music videos yet was criticizing others.
Recall that beef sprouted after Wale said Ghanaian artistes travel to go and shoot videos outside the country but at the end of the day they don’t get their money backs on their investment. He cited that rapper Jay Z shoots videos in his area yet Ghanaians leave their domain and travel outside, incurring huge debt in the process which they don’t recoup from the songs.
Subsequently Sadiq responded to his statement by slamming him for being ignorant and that was what sparked tension from both camps.
Amidst the feud, Shatta discredited the 3Music awards scheme and alleged that Sadiq who is the. 3Music awards boss gave him 11 awards on the night of the 3Music awards in 2019, out of hatred for some other artistes, notably Sarkodie and Stonebwoy.
Meanwhile, Sadiq stated clearly that Shatta Wale could not bring the 3Music Awards into disrepute because he was not credible.
“Anything coming from Shatta Wale should not be taken seriously because they are all not true. First of all, I never gave 11 awards to him because I had issues with Sarkodie or Stonebwoy.
“Secondly, Shatta Wale has never given me any ¢100,000. Shatta Wale will never give me money to organize any awards,” he said. Sadiq stated that he had never taken Shatta Wale seriously because of his track record.
“Shatta Wale is that guy who fights just anyone trying to outshine him. Look at what he said about Stonebwoy, Samini and Sarkodie when he had issues with them.
The same person used unprintable words against Charterhouse and also the mother of his son. Why should I worry myself about such a person who would destroy you with lies,” he said.
According to Sadiq, the board of the 3Music Awards was dealing with the situation.
“Shatta Wale should tell the board how we gave him the 11 awards and the money he said he had given us. 3Music Awards is bigger than Shatta Wale and there is no way he can bring it down with his untruths,” he stated.
