The American singer Beyoncé and the Ghanaian reggae/dancehall artist Shatta Wale almost didn’t work together, according to Shatta Wale. This was because to some issues with the organizer.
In a recent Twitter thread titled “Konnekt with Shatta Wale,” the Ghanaian agent who was organizing the process between himself and Beyoncé’s team allegedly made it so convoluted and challenging.
“When Beyoncé wanted to feature me, I swear to God, I didn’t want to continue the process again. You know why? The Ghanaian that followed and was coordinating for that thing went all wrong about the situation.
“He was rushing, ‘chale what what, chale this and that’, and I told him to shut up, don’t tell me that, don’t shout like that. He was like, ‘she said she’ll come next week, we have to shoot the video now, and you see all those things, it does not move me”, Shatta said.
Shatta added that despite all the challenges, he still went ahead to collaborate with the American superstar and produced a hit song “Already” because of his love for the fans.
“I did it because I love the fans, that is why I stressed myself. Beyoncé and her team actually wanted me to fly with my crew like the way I travel with 16, 12 people but our Ghanaians with their pressure forced me, now I want to feature Beyoncé and I am getting problems. Now the same Ghanaian can’t even get that feature”, he stated.
