The popular singer cum rapper, Shatta Wale asserted that Nigerian singer, Ahmed “Asake” Ololade is bigger than every Ghanaian artiste.

The controversial artiste made the statement while having a chat on Twitter Space hosted by Ghanaian media personality, Serwaa.

Shatta asserted that no Ghanaian artiste, including himself, has been able to reach Asake’s level career-wise.

He said; “No Ghanaian artiste has even made it like Asake. Not even me. Nobody in this Ghanaian [music] industry has made what Asake has made. Let’s be realistic.”

The host inferred: “But you said you are the richest Ghanaian artiste and you haven’t even made it up to Asake’s level?”

The singer responded: “Why would I have to make it up to Asake’s level [before I would be the richest artiste in Ghana]? There is a Spanish artiste in Spain or Dominican Republic that is making money that we don’t know.”
