- Shatta Wale says both Sarkodie and Stonebwoy are not his equals in the Ghanaian music industry
- He holds the opinion that neither of the two musicians comes close to him in terms of brand visibility
- Shatta also condemned the comparison of musicians by fans, arguing that such acts bring about unnecessary hatred in the music industry
Dancehall commando Charles Nii Armah, known as Shatta Wale, has gloated about the prominence of his brand.
He boasted about his gains in the music industry, adding that his feats outweigh that of Sarkodie and Stonebwoy. He reiterated that neither of the two is his ‘music mates’.
Abeg you, don’t compare me to Black Sherif or Sarkodie. Go and ask [your] Sarkodie. Is he my size? Go and ask [your] Stonebwoy. Is he my size?
Shatta, in a Facebook live video on Tuesday morning, also spoke passionately about the needless comparison of Ghanaian artistes by the various fanbases in the country, urging them to put a stop to that behaviour since it stalls the development of the Ghanaian music industry.
Everyday, you people [will be] on social media comparing one artiste to the other, causing problems here and there. [Meanwhile] we have a lot of challenges that need solutions. Musicians are being cheated and you are [only] interested in fights

It was evident from his utterances that he had had enough of this attitude by Ghanaian music fans, although some netizens on Twitter believe it is a strategy to hype his upcoming GOG album.
