StonebwoyStonebwoy, a dancehall performer from Ghana, has addressed accusations that he insulted Shatta Wale during a stage performance.

The dancehall rapper was accused of insulting Shatta Wale while performing for his fans during the release of his 5th Dimension album a few weeks ago

In a rant during the performance, Stonebwoy said: “If anybody talk say he be the king of dancehall, talk am say ein morda”.

The fact that Shatta Wale goes by the title “Dancehall King” led many to interpret Stonebwoy’s comments as an oblique jab at Shatta.

But in a recent interview with Nana Romeo on Accra FM, Stonebwoy said that such claims were untrue and that he had not intended to disparage Shatta Wale.

“In the heat of the moment, I was overwhelmed and wanted to inspire the young artists who were present and were watching me perform that they did not have to look up to anyone as the king of dancehall since there is a lot of work to do”, Stonebwoy stated.

“It was like a drop-a-mic moment…For this event, a lot of Dancehall artists came. It was just overwhelming. So there was a high spirit and sense of duty for those of us the pacesetters to continue to pave the way for those upcoming just as I was doing on the stage at that moment.

“In context, it [the utterance] is to say there is work to be done, so when someone claims [kingship], it’s futility and what does he want us to do with the ones looking up to us?” he quizzed

The award-winning dancehall artiste added that he did not mean to insult Shatta, and even though people would not believe him or his explanation, that was all he meant.
