“Ohemaa is unique. She is in her own world and class. No one can replace her. Maybe, Wendy Shay could be greater…”stated Mr. Kwarteng

Shay has two hits ‘Uber Driver’ and ‘Bedroom Commando’ to her credit.

Pay Shatta Wale and I one million Dollars each for a joint concert – Samini

A joint Samini and Shatta Wale concert would cost an event organizer at least two million Dollars.

The former speaking with DJ Advicer on Happy FM’s ‘Ayekoo’ show stated that it’s “big business” and that they owe the country a big concert.

“Between two of us, we still owe the country a big concert to prove that this is it, but this will involve a big budget and it’s a big business, give us each a million dollars,” explained Samini.

“That will be a full stadium so if an investor comes forward, I will perform, it’s a huge business and the venue would have to be the stadium because that is where fans from each party can be contained…Since it’s under renovation, we will be the first to use it once it’s done, or better still we can use the Fantasy Dome.

The two artistes have been going against each other for many years mainly over who is the king of Dancehall/Reggae genre in Ghana.
