No Ghanaian Artiste Bigger Than Nigeria’s Asake – Shatta Wale

Shatta Wale has said that Nigerian musician Asake is “more successful than all the artistes from his country Ghana.”

Wale stated in an X-Space interview with Serwaa Amihere, the TV host, that Asake is popular because he “listens” to Olamide, the YBNL label president.

The dancehall singer also challenged artists to improve their skills in order to organize concerts at large venues such as the UK’s O2 Arena.

He believes that his colleagues can only succeed and gain a global audience if they learn from veteran musicians.

“If Olamide can out Asake on, and Asake is listening to Olamide because Olamide is experienced. Do you think Asake would not get there?” he said.

“What I am saying is, you know Asake is under Olamide’s label. So if Olamide is pushing Asake to get to a level and Asake is listening, do you think today, if we are seeing Asake there, he has not tried?

“Asake alone can not wake up and say he wants to fill O2.

“No Ghanaian artiste has even made it like Asake. Not even me. Do not bring Asake into the conversation. Nobody in this Ghana industry has made what Asake has made. So do not even bring Asake in. Let us talk about reality.

“Why would I have to make it up to Asake’s level? There is a Spanish artiste in Spain or the Dominican Republic that is making money that we don’t know. Do you know any of the Spanish artistes? Do you even know them?

“We are putting Asake in this conversation as somebody that has listened.”

On Sunday, Wale said Nigerian artistes are making Ghana’s music scene “look like a feeding bottle”.

He also congratulated Asake for the success of his recent concert at London’s O2 Arena.
