Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, disclosed that Shatta Wale animosity towards Nigerians is a result of frustrations from the system.
In an interview on Hitz FM, Sam George mentioned that Shatta Wale’s frustration comes from a poorly organized system.
“Shatta is fighting Nigeria. It’s a frustration of the system. We were in a world of our own, but again, what did we do? No conscious effort by the state or private capital to invest in that sector.”
According to Sam George, Ghanaians are selfish and will the fight progress of their own.
“Then again, it comes to what I think is a problem of our country. Ghanaians celebrate mediocrity. We are content with little. Ghanaians tag you as greedy when they see you pushing for more… Ghanaians will fight you. We fight our own. Nigerians celebrate their own.”
Sam George also revealed that in the late 70s, Ghanaian musicians have really enjoyed West Africa more than Nigerian music.
He said, “In the 70s Ghanaian music was the ish across West Africa, Highlife. In the early 2000s, our Hiplife was what it was and Nigerians didn’t have any response to us. They were still banging on Fela Kuti’s music to respond to our Hiplife. At the time, Obrafour and Lord Kenya were setting the place ablaze. At the time, Okomfuor Kwaadee came out with hits, Samini, then Batman, Kokovelli, KK Fosu, I mean Nigerians had absolutely no response to us.”
