Yul Edochie has weighed in on the ongoing controversy created by Ghanian Rapper, Shatta Wale.
While performing at his Freedom Concert, Shatta Wale insulted and berated Nigerians for thinking he won’t sell out an entire stadium without enlisting Nigerian artistes on the billboard.
“They said I won’t be able to fill my own stadiums, I don’t need any Nigerian artiste to sell out Ghana’s stadium, f**k Nigerian artistes,” the rapper bragged.
He has been under the heat since his misstatement. However, Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has lent him his voice, advicing him to apologize for his statements because it is only nice that he uses his large fan base to promote peace and unity among Africans and the rest of the world.
The actor posted on social media,
“Dear Shatta Wale, coming out to say ‘F**k Nigerian artistes’ is extreme and too low for a man like you. That’s hate.
I remember when Nigerian movie producers were giving all the lead roles to Ghanaian actors a few years back, no Nigerian ever came out to say ‘F**k Ghanaian actors’.
I have lots of fans from Ghana who send me goodwill messages daily, inviting me to Ghana and I appreciate all of them.
I’m a fan of your music. Your track with Beyonce is always on repeat in my car.
No matter what is pissing you off, a man like you with a large fan base should be using it to promote peace and unity among Africans and the rest of the world. You should apologise for such a statement.”
