Ghanaian music super star Shatta Wale has come out to praise Nigerians, while calling out Ghanaian music, saying it is shameful.

The adulation comes months after Shatta staged a meltdown against the Nigerian music industry and artists.

But Shatta shocked observers in a tweet on Sunday.

“Please can we just respect Nigerians for their hard work and stop comparing our lazy lifestyle to theirs,” Shatta Wale tweeted. “It’s shame ppl think Nigerians will come hard at me but see they are the ones doing the streaming cuz they understand what Talent means .. Ghana music is a shame.”

The tweet has since caused much bewilderment among Nigerians while some Ghanaians are not taking lightly to the talkdown of the creatives.

Ghanaian fans who did not take too lightly to the insult, berated the artiste for being ungrateful and fighting with his fans, to which the singer responded in a follow up tweet saying: “So man can’t talk to some foolish ghana fans in peace, Nigeria pls ano come for una I beg ,I am talking to ghana foolish fans association, I will come to you when I have beef over there plssss …let me finish with these f#ckers 😂😂 I beg”

His response has further elicited brickbats from his fans. Some of the reactions and comments on twitter are captured below:

@PrezzMatthew commented: “Was your account hacked or is this really you?😂”

@breezymoore6 tweeted, “Same shatta wale wey been dey hate Nigerians? Abi you wan release song and nobody to help you stream am na why you dey hype us?”

@Mhizteh_Zion tweeted saying “We do the streaming too Shatta, can’t you just say “thank you” to Nigerians without downgrading us Ghanaians.

“How can you switch so easily? We love you and you know that. Don’t seek attention elsewhere by making us look evil……… Till when?”

@YoungKi32715512 tweeted saying “You were the same person saying the always bought their success eg.awards and big moves so what are trying to say now? Simple advise yourself and stop hating their success”

@tiktokgh tweeted “He is a business man. He knows where the money comes from at what time.”
