Shatta Wale has caused another controversy on social media with what fans describe as a disrespectful comment about Reggie Rockstone and the hiplife grandpapa has the perfect reply for him.
“I am disappointed … our old men do not like rap they like highlife so rap is not even going to stand strong, I blame Reggie Rockstone for even bringing rap to Ghana because he himself, he has not made an impact with rap,” Shatta Wale said told MzGee on TV3.
In reply, Reggie Rockstone who is credited for institutionalizing rap in Ghana under the Hip Life genre decided to school Shatta Wale on the impact of rap music reminding him that Ghana has more rappers than dancehall acts. The 55-year-old also seized the moment to remind Shatta Wale that he also started as a rapper when he was Bandana.
