Swedru-based artiste Patapaa has hurled insults at Sarkodie and Shatta Wale for disrespecting his brand.
According to Patapaa his brand is bigger than Shatta Wale and Sarkodie, the reason they envy him.
Speaking in an interview on Zylofon FM, Patapaa Amisty said that despite his hard work in the music fraternity, Sarkodie and Shatta Wale have continually looked down on his craft.
He indicated that the actions by the pair have contributed to young artists like Amerado also disrespecting him in his diss song to Obibini.
It could be recalled that in 2018, Sarkodie threw shots at Patapaa on the remix of Ypee’s ‘Meye Guy’.
“Sarkodie came out with naked head, his head was like konko, you should have seen his beard. It was by God’s grace that he met Hammer of the Last 2 who helped you to become Sarkodie of today. This is when he started fooling, in one of his songs, he stated that had it not been God who has blessed him with money, Patapaa would have performed at his burial service. I want to ask, am I a wake-keeping performer?
“Sarkodie is rather the artiste who performs at funerals, yes. I saw him performing at a recent NPP funeral, I was there with my manager. He is a senior funeral contractor, I saw him there but because I assumed he was a senior man, I didn’t say anything.” He said.
“Shatta Wale who I saw as my godfather did the same. The light I carry is bright but Shatta Wale and Sarkodie have contributed to the foolishness we see among young musicians. When Wale fought with Yaa Pono, he mentioned my name in one of his tracks saying he has stopped giving hype to underground artiste so if you need hype, go to Patapaa. Pure foolishness, am I Shatta Wale or Yaa Pono? How do they always involve me in such issues? He should cast his mind back to his days as Bandana, it was this same media that promoted him. Whenever they are on air, especially that stupid Sarkodie, he wants to bring me down.” He addded.
He commended Stonebwoy for being a professional as he claimed that the Bhim Nation president is the only artiste who appreciates the role underground artists and other artists play in the music industry/
According to Patapaa, he is the only musician to have put Ghana music on the map with his “One Corner” and “Scopatumana” singles adding that his brand is bigger than Shatta Wale and Sarkodie.
“The only artiste I respect is Stonebwoy, he has never insulted or disrespected any underground artiste on a song? No, because he respects his brand but for these foolish artistes, Shatta Wale and Sarkodie, they have paved the way for Amerado to disrespect me on a track. They started it… they don’t respect me but I want them to know that my shine is from God,” Patapaa disclosed.
