Dancehall Artiste, Shatta Wale says he does not respect awards like other colleagues in the industry do.
According to him, he cannot use the awards for a loan neither will the award make it easy for him to get a Visa to another country.
He made this known when he appeared on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana.
Shatta Wale said ” People want to win awards, put it in their rooms and watch it every day, and feel good about it. But if I take you to my room right now I have a lot of awards that I can’t take a loan with it. I have awards that when I go to the embassy and I say give me visa for this award they won’t give me, unless I pass through the right channel. I believe that awards come, but I always tell my team that money comes before prestige”.
Social Media users have been on Shatta Wale’s case to congratulate Sarkodie for winning BET Best International Flow but the Dancehall artiste has not succumbed to the pressure online.
