Dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has disclosed what made him walk off stage at last Saturday’s Luv FM’s Skuuls Reunion in Kumasi. The multiple award-winning artiste talking about the event which happened on Saturday, November 21 at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Pluzz FM said he is a professional artiste so event organisers have to treat him as such.
“I always say we are artists who are working professionally. I have not only worked in Ghana but around the world. I have seen how people work. So if you call Shatta Wale for a show, and you don’t check your sound system, security and machines go off, you blame me for it, and I see my brand is at stake, I will just walk away from it. I wasn’t annoyed.
I was on stage when the lights went off, and I sat on the stage stairs for over ten minutes waiting for the lights to come on. The fans were still cheering on. You know I love my fans, so I was patiently waiting.
The lights came on, I got the mic, started singing my next track and the light went off again. Nobody bothered, and I asked one guy ‘why are you guys doing that?’and he said ‘they don’t know’. I’m a professional artist, I came and fulfilled my part of the deal then I left. I didn’t get annoyed and leave all of a sudden as it was reported.”
Celebriytvgh.com reported late Saturday that Shatta Wale had walked off stage at the event due to “dumsor” and poor sound.
