The credibility of the 3Music awards project has crashed bitterly as a result of a sudden allegation levelled against the project by dancehall artiste Shatta Wale. The dancehall artiste has revealed a secret suggesting that the awards must not be trusted because they are not given based on merit.
Shatta Wale and CEO of 3Media and 3Music awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu, have lately been at each other’s throats on social media.
The genesis of the argument was when Sadiq hit back at the dancehall musician over his ‘music video’ comment.
Shatta Wale wrote,
“Keep shooting music videos like you want to battle Jay Z. You will wake up one day and ask me how I made all this money. And I will tell you this.”
But then Sadiq disagreed and responded,
“Wale is always making hollow arguments and running in circles. Who says that today one cant know exactly how much one makes on a song or video. How such narratives are allowed to fester is shocking.”
Sadiq’s response was followed by frequencies of insults, including an allegation that he suffers from halitosis (bad breath);
And the most recent allegation is that 3Music awards operate on a non-merit basis.
In his Instagram stories, Shatta Wale wrote,
“Sadik do you remember telling me that the 3music awards you will give me 11 awards because Sarkodie and Stone deh bore you. We didn’t do well, but now I am doing well by speaking the truth.”
Sadiq is yet to respond to the accusation at the time of the report.
This has raised many questionable questions in the entertainment arena because Shatta Wale did indeed pick up 11 awards under the same award project.
At that time, the dancehall artiste described it as a manifestation of his hard work. Now he says it was all a fraudulent project.
First Ghana News Editors Comments:
this is a typical example of why the white man does not accept any academic certificate acquired from Ghana simply because they know that in our part of the world we can buy the certificate…
If this is what Shatta Wale is alleging then I think Shatta Wale need to be dragged along with the bitter corruption nature of the 3Music Awards. My reasons are very simple.
Let us assume no arguments ever happen between Shatta Wale and CEO of 3Media and 3Music awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu, then Shatta Wale would have kept this secret from the general public entirely until thy kingdom come.
But the dance hall artists has decided to hit back at the CEO of 3Media and 3Music awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu simply because he Shatta Wale feels Sadiq has downgraded his comments that he dropped concerning the high budget of music videos shot by some Ghanaian artists.
This is total hypocrisy on the part of our dancehall king and in my opinion, wherever the CEO of 3Media and 3Music awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu is dragged to, Shatta Wale must be pulled to follow up.
Personally, as an individual, I am a fan of the dancehall king due to his boldness to hit the drum where it belongs but in the context of this matter, I think the dancehall king has terribly erred and needs to apologize to his loyal fans.
I am in no way trying to defame Shatta Wale because a plain word is no chick. I will remind the Shatta Wale that, he is a man of plain words so I will expect him to understand my opinion on this matter.
I mean no harm but I still hold my stand that, if Shatta Wale knew the 3Media and 3Music awards was fraudulent and cannot be trusted because awards are not given based on merit? 1. why did he take part in it? 2. why did he accept the awards? 3. why has he kept the secret from the public until now?
What I mean is that, if 3Media and 3Music awards CEO Sadiq Abdulai Abu must be investigated and arrested, the same thing must be done to Shatta Wale for aiding and abetting…or?
