Shatta Wale has stated that he is not comfortable with his pair at the Coke Studio Africa season 4.

The Dancehall musician who was paired with Nigerian Afro-pop star, Yemi Alade, has vehemently bemoaned Coke Studio Africa’s pairing for this year’s edition.

He said even though he respects Yemi and her brand, he is not comfortable with the pairing. He made this statement on Pluzz FM today.

“I can’t travel from Ghana to Kenya to just meet any artiste they feel they can pair me with. No, no, no, Shatta wale is not like that. If you want to pair me, let me know who I feel comfortable with. Don’t just go and pair me with any artiste. I am not a pair of shoes that you can pair left and right. Let me know which artiste you want me to pair with and let me make my choice,” he said.

“I have worked with bigger brands but if I say I am a bigger brand than her [Yemi Alade], it will look like I am disrespecting her. She’s a good musician but sometimes, you can’t wake up and collaborate with anyone just like that. We should know what we want to go in for.

“I respect Yemi Alade so much and it’s not like I don’t want to pair with her but she has her type of people who can pair with her well. For instance, I can’t pair with people like Céline Dion because her style is different from mine. She can’t perform my songs just like Yemi Alade," he added.

“I am not into Yemi Alade’s field so I can’t pair with her. I am doing this to protect my brand. You have to always feel comfortable with what you do,” he concluded.

Shatta Wale also said his management team is discussing with Coke Studio Africa to find a better pair for him.

Stonebwoy was paired with American R&B singer, Trey Songz while Efya was paired with Ugandan BET Award Winner Eddy Kenzo in the Coke Africa Studio 4.
