Dancehall musician Shatta Wale and the Programmes Manager of Multimedia Group, Mark Okraku Mantey are at each other’s throats over a bounced interview on Hitz FM.
According to reports, Shatta Wale was supposed to appear on King Lagazee’s show tomorrow (September 1) but was called off at the eleventh hour.
Shatta Wale immediately went on Twitter, accusing Mark Okraku of deliberately cancelling the interview (for whatever reason known to each other).
The “Ayoo” hitmaker called him out on Twitter and claimed ‘Ghanaians will fight for him this time around’.
“So today today Mark Okraku Mantey , You can be bold and say Multimedia is under you so you have the right to Say Lagazey shouldn’t interview me !! This time Ghana go fight for me !!”
Shatta Wale and Mark Okraku seem to have a beef for while now. Sometime back, Mark Okraku Mantey said he has nothing against controversial musician Shatta Wale but rather pities him.
Mr Okraku-Mantey in a ‘One-on-One’ interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM noted that he pities the singer because he may not know the implications of what he is doing.
Mr Okraku-Mantey was being interviewed on the show about his life as an artiste manager.
The interim president of the Creative Arts Council’s comments follow series of attacks from Shatta Wale including videos posted on social media where he accused Mr Okraku-Mantey of stealing his money.
However, Mr Okraku Mantey, says he is not perturbed about the accusations from the ‘Kakai’ hitmaker.
He noted that even though Shatta Wale might come across as an aggressive character, he [Okraku Mantey] believes that the singer only does that to maintain his brand as a dancehall act.
“I don’t have anything against Shatta Wale I only pity him,”
he said and stressed that he did not deem it necessary to reply Shatta Wale.
Mark Okraku Mantey further explained that he would have responded if these abusive words came from M.anifest, Sarkodie or Obrafour.
