Shatta Wale turns heat on Ghanaian media pundits in new single 'Mr Pundit'
The Boss of Shatta Movement, Shatta Wale has released a new single dubbed Mr Pundit.
He threw shots at the media personalities who sit on the radio and television shows to badmouth him and talk down on his achievements over the years.
The chorus of his self-produced song sees him singing; “Mr Pundit who tell you say I be your mate? You no go fit intimidate me.”
In the second verse of the song, Shatta Wale questions their knowledge of an artist's creative process and accuses them of being local champions.
He further questioned their wealth asking about the properties they owned and if they have ever purchased a first-class ticket.
Shatta Wale then came to the conclusion that they can only pass snide remarks at him because they are in Accra, which he describes as a village.
This single comes days after Sarkodie reprimanded journalists for belittling his achievements.
In an interview with the social media sensation, Firestick, Sarkodie stated that the personalities within the Ghanaian media landscape have no moral right to criticize Ghanaian musicians or instruct them on what they have to do with their music brands.
He said that until Ghanaian media personalities have bettered or attained the standards of world media platforms like the BBC, they have no moral right to criticize Ghanaian musicians.
