Yul Edochie, a Nollywood actor, advised Ghanaian rapper Shatta Wale on Monday to apologize for disparaging Nigerian artistes.
The actor was responding to Shatta Wale’s Sunday rant, in which the rapper slammed Nigerian musicians for selling out a Ghanaian stadium.
“They said I won’t be able to fill my own stadiums, I don’t need any Nigerian artiste to sell out Ghana’s stadium, f**k Nigerian artistes,” the rapper had said.
Shatta Wale also used his Twitter account on Monday to blast Nigerians, telling them to be grateful to Ghana for supporting Nigerian artists.
Yul Edochie, who recently declared his intention to run for the Nigerian presidency, responded to the rapper’s rants by stating that he should apologize for his outbursts.
The actor posted on his social media platforms,
“Dear Shatta Wale, coming out to say ‘F**k Nigerian artistes’ is extreme and too low for a man like you. That’s hate.
“I remember when Nigerian movie producers were giving all the lead roles to Ghanaian actors a few years back, no Nigerian ever came out to say ‘F**k Ghanaian actors’.
“I have lots of fans from Ghana who send me goodwill messages daily, inviting me to Ghana and I appreciate all of them.
“I’m a fan of your music. Your track with Beyonce is always on repeat in my car.
“No matter what is pissing you off, a man like you with a large fan base should be using it to promote peace and unity among Africans and the rest of the world. You should apologise for such a statement.”
