*Shatta Wale is Discontented About Being Compared With Black Sherif*
Reggae/Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale is displeased that some music enthusiasts are correlating him with rapper Black Sherif.
According to Shatta, through these comparisons, the influence artists make over the years is undermined.
Speaking in a live video on social media, Shatta Wale stated that two artists have the right to prevail without people pitting them against each other.
He explained that people have a choice to like whichever artiste of their choosing and also the music genre they crave.
Shatta Wale said it is objectionable to make comparisons, especially between himself and Black Sherif who only came into the scene barely a year ago.
He stated that Black Sherif should be left alone to ripen his career and make his mark without some of these comments fogging the work he is putting in.
The ‘Melissa’ hitmaker said since his early days in the industry, he has been compared with several artists encompassing; Samini, Stonebwoy, and Sarkodie among others.
“However, many of these people who try to use other artists’ work to put him down hardly support them after the controversies,” he added.
Shatta Wale stated that he does not see anyone as his mate in the industry particularly since he was able to restore his career after taking a break following his first hit single ‘Moko Hoo’.
Despite the moves to trump his success, Shatta Wale noted that he has a devoted fan base that supports him regardless.
He added that there are other music lovers in other parts of the world, including Nigeria who love his music and commemorate his accomplishments.
