Shatta Wale has listed four veteran musicians who were not smart in their heydays.
The 31-year-old singer in his latest interview with Delay on “The Delay Show”, started his list by comparing himself to veteran Hiplife musician Ex Doe.
“Ex Doe was a Hiplife artiste. Shatta Wale is a Dancehall artist. Shatta Wale is a business minded person, Ex Doe is not. Shatta Wale is a smart boy. Ex Doe is not. Shatta Wale is music inclined, Ex Doe is not. I play my beats; I don’t do cover songs. I make sure I save. I take my career serious,” he said.
Explaining why he said ‘Yes’, Shatta said “YES! They weren’t business minded. I’m taking advantage of the fame I have now. If I’m no more famous, I want to be seen working for a big company somewhere. We are in an industry where people enjoy going abroad. Four years down the lane you see them and wonder what happened. I feel most of the things the critics say is just out of envy.”
He added, “I have seen the downfall of many artistes because they weren’t smart.”
