You make Sarkodie feel big when you compare me to him; he’s not on my level- Shatta Wale, Renowned Dancehall artist, Shatta Wale, has issued a warning against drawing comparisons between himself and rapper Sarkodie, noting that such comparisons tend to inflate Sarkodie’s ego.
Shatta Wale’s remarks were in response to Ola Michael’s comments during the recent episode of United Showbiz.
Shatta Wale suggested that Ola Michael should have chosen to draw a comparison between him and Samini, as he believes they share a comparable stature.
He highlighted that during the period when his music, particularly the hit track “Bandana,” was dominating the Ghanaian scene, artists like Sarkodie and Stonebwoy had yet to rise to prominence.
The moment you compare me to Sarkodie then you make him feel big. When I talk to him, he wants to rub shoulders with me.
Where I have been, you (Sarkodie) has never been there before. You people make it seem like Sarkodie is bigger than me. He can never be bigger than me in his life.
“Some parents have first born and second born. The second born can never be bigger than the firstborn.
It can never happen. I am not saying Sarkodie isn’t successful but the mindset I have, he doesn’t have it. He is doing his own stuff” he said while speaking in an interview on Empire FM.
