One of Stonebwoy’s PR, Gerrard Israel has opined in a Facebook post that the Patois flare of female dancehall musician, Kaakie hits harder than that of Shatta Wale.
Gerrard labels his opinion as a fact with hashtag #AsaaseSoundClash.
It’s obvious that he’s saying this prior to the already held musical clash on Asaase Radio 99.5 hosted BBC’s very own Seani B.
The program dubbed #Clash2CrushCOVID was held yesterday 31st July 2020 where dancehall hits from Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy were played.
The motive of the show is to help raise awareness about COVID-19 and how we can in our part do to stop the spread.
Shatta Wale himself endorsed the show saying it’s not meant to spark violence but to rather kick out COVID-19.
Shatta said in an interview, “people know how long we’ve been fighting for things like this to happen in our Ghanaian music space. Our Reggae and Dancehall space need such initiatives. I’m not surprised my and Stonebwoy’s name came up because we control the scene down here. Names like myself and Stonebwoy definitely will come up. And the fans know how we fought for this thing so it’s just right to be in the line up.” — Shatta Wale
Shatta Wale also added that, “Ghana has been a place where we try to make the populace understand the Dancehall culture. We always try and this time it’s strictly business and nothing personal as people would think. But the main idea is to make people aware of the disease and how best we can eradicate it. We don’t want to portray violence with the clash. We want to show the people what is right and that’s it.”
