Originator of popular music genre hiplife Reginald Osei aka Reggie Rockstone and at times referred to as Grandpapa has disclosed he has made giants steps at resolving the current feud between top Ghanaian dancehall acts Samini and Shatta Wale although he earlier felt they were only expressing their disagreements through music.
Speaking to NY DJ on the Kapital Entertainment Unplugged Show on Kapital Radio over the weekend, the CEO of Django bar disclosed;
“Beefs and disagreements among artists are normal just as people disagree and argue on many issues in their various homes, people don’t fight because they disagree, No!! The only difference here is that Samini and Shatta Wale are musicians so they only put their disagreements and arguments in a music form cos that’s how they communicate”.
Furthering his argument, he stated that although he believed both artists were not violent and would not engage in any rowdy confrontations, it was increasingly becoming worrying as both acts had growing movements who are fanatics and would go any mile to keep their idols on top.
He stated, he had therefore initiated a move to get both acts at a round table to trash out their disagreements and find a better way of making money than creating confusion among the music loving fans as he believed any clash between fanatics of both camps would mean no shows for them which will make life unbearable for them.
In a related development, the PRO for MUSIGA, Okyeame Kwame also disclosed on the same show that MUSIGA was worried about the recent happenings in the dancehall fraternity and was working at resolving the impasse.
