Last night, the long awaited and much anticipated Asaase Radio Clash between Ghanaian dancehall stars Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy finally came off.
With a venue and settings moulded with a great and colorful ambience, the clash kicked off at exactly 1l:20 pm, after series of curtain raising performances from MsVee and others.
In a strange turn of events Samini became the peak point of the event when Shatta Wale out of the blue decided to pull a pitching bait on Stonebwoy by performing Samini’s “Masters” to spite him.The boost of the bait however was when Stonebwoy rather inanely decided to leave Shatta and launch an attack on Samini, tagging him as a “sellout father”. The bewilderment amongst the audience in response to the statement was loud and the shock on even Shatta Wale’ s face was evident, to hear someone say this about a man who gave him life in music.
Now point it, we had more than 1 hour of 40 plus back and forth releases by both artistes, yet Samini’s name turned out dominant. The pivotal point here is how Samini’s relevance played out with much dominance even in his state of absentia. The major topics related to the event currently revolves around the bit that featured Samini. How the Samini’s bit became the reflective point in the 4 long hour event involving Asaase Radio’s supposed top 2 can only give credence to the fact that Samini remains an unquenchable factor in the dancehall culture in Africa. The happenings as depicted by the headlines is manfestive of Samini’s story line in his latest banger “King Forever” . (Refer to Lyrics).
Conlusion pins on the premise that the event had no announced winner yet the reigning name after the whole engagement remains only one, Samini. Now ask yourself, isn’t this something huge to contend with?
