‘Too much branding made them give you flask as award’ – Shatta Wale mocks Sarkodie fans


Ghanaian dancehall musician Shatta Wale, real name Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr, has joked that Sarkodie was given a flask as an award due to his too much branding.

It would be recalled that in August last year, Decorated Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie and other celebrities were awarded the ‘Global Blueprint Excellence Award’.

The award, which was organised by ‘Dr’ Kwame Fordjour and labelled as a UN-backed award, was later found to be fraudulent.

Speaking to KalyJay on Twitter Spaces on Friday, Shatta Wale touched on the subject of branding and made a joke about Sarkodie’s fan base.

“Branding has taken people to places. But let me tease Sark Nation small, you people brand too much. The branding made them give you flask [as award],” he joked while cracking up the audience with laughter.

Meanwhile, Shatta Wale also encouraged the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana to live their lives to the fullest despite a push by the majority of lawmakers to pass the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.

Reacting to the bill, the “Ayoo” hitmaker has said he doesn’t discriminate against the LGBT community and that his fan base is made up of g@ys and lɛsbiaŋs.
