Self-acclaimed dancehall king in Ghana and Africa, Shatta Wale has reacted to SarkCess Music’s end of the contractual relationship with Strongman after 2 years of signing him.
In a letter dated 14 April 2019, SarkCess music announced it has part ways with Kumasi-based rapper Strongman and labelled their experience as a priceless one. They expressed their appreciation to everyone who supported Strongman in various ways.
There have been varied reactions in the public domain following the announcement by SarkCess Music as many have likened Sarkodie signing Strongman as a conflict of interest.
In a tweet by Shatta Wale which seems to mock Sarkodie over his inability to extend Strongman’s contract, the dancehall artist cited that Sarkodie is financially not sound thus his failure to sign the rapper for another year.
According to him, artists who are capable of supporting artists are those who have the financial muscles to do so without any stress.
He described the nurturing of signees as an investment an artist makes with the money he has garnered from the expression of his craft positing that if an artist is therefore unable to financially support a signee to gain mainstream presence, then the artiste or the CEO of the record label is virtually broke.
Below is Shatta Wale’s tweet:
“If u get money as an artiste
You won’t worry when pushing a talent ..it’s an investment from the money you have made but if you can’t push then my nigga you broke ass😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣”
