Ghanaian artist Shatta Wale had a mental breakdown on Monday and took to Twitter to accuse all Nigerian musicians of being “upcoming” and “one styled”.

The “Already” crooner said Nigerian artists were not appreciative of the support shown them by Ghanaians, tweeting: “Learn to say thank you, Ghana has always been your gateway.”

Accusing Nigerian artists of “failing to promote Ghanaian artists”, Shatta Wale said, “As for Nigerians they think they can always say what they want to say Fuck your talks ya’ll who think I spoke the truth this, I don’t even remember you guys promoting Ghanaian artiste in your country, until u guys will realize your artiste blow in Ghana to say thank you ..F.”.

The artist threatened to put a stop to the support that Nigerian artists get from Ghanaians, saying, “Bring it on and your artiste won’t get that hype they get from Ghana .. I can make that stop ..Don’t dare me. It’s the truth ,your artiste come here for numbers before the world can recognize them .. Appreciate Ghana supporting your artiste and stop this foolishness.”

The 37-year-old who is recognised for his collaboration with Beyoncé on her Lion King album, was on October this year arrested by Ghanaian police for “spreading false information” over a gun attack.

Also, in a December 10, 2019 tweet, Shatta Wale had jubilated over obtaining a Nigerian passport. “Thank God I just got my Naija passport and work permit. Proud Naija boy,” he tweeted.

Some Nigerians have taken to social media to drag Shatta Wale for his rant, including fast rising Nigerian artist Yung6ix who told the artist that he was fighting a lost cause in trying to pitch Nigerians against Ghanaians.

“For the record fuck @shattawalegh. You will not attach the name Nigeria to worthless agenda and not addressed. Never seen two countries coexist in love like Nigeria and Ghana. You are fighting a lost cause,” Yung6ix said.
