Raggae and Dancehall artist, Samini has confessed that his recent rants on social media calling out Stonebwoy were just attempts to have his name trend.
Samini had said he was disappointed in his protégé, Stonebwoy, for failing to inform him about the sound clash against Shatta Wale.
‘SoundClash’ is an initiative by Accra-based radio station, Asaase Radio.
Reacting to the scheduled battle, Samini stated that it was out of place for Shatta Wale to battle Stonebwoy.
The ‘Linda’ hit maker believes that the ‘Kakai’ hit maker belongs to his era and they should have been paired.
Also, Samini stated that he has unresolved issues with Shatta Wale due to their beef some years ago and this led to Shatta Wale attacking Stonebwoy because the ‘Sugar’ singer was in the High Grade camp.
Samini felt that Stonebwoy is aware of these facts and should have informed him about the clash or allowed him to face Shatta Wale.
However in an interview with DJ Seani B on Asaase Radio, Samini disclosed that he doesn’t have any issue with Stonebwoy but he only wanted to trend.
“My rants on social media about the clash was to have me trend, and I achieved that. It was my smart way to get involved as well. There is still unfinished business between me and Shatta Wale”.
”I wasn’t surprised to see Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale names come up for the Sound Clash. My longevity in the game is good reason enough to include me in Sound Clash such as this one. I don’t see the reason why anyone would disagree with me on this,” Samini revealed.
“I don’t see me and Stonebwoy having a ‘head on’ sound clash in a competitive bout because ‘Father & Son’ don’t have to do that, perhaps it would have to be a family vibe sort of with Stonebwoy on the microphone”
”If anything between me and Stonebwoy on the microphone it will be more like a party clash and not anything so serious. It still remains a family thing between me and Stonebwoy forever.
HighGrade Family and Bhim Nation are family forever and I won’t change that narrative”, he added.
Samini also praised Asaase Radio for bringing up such an initiative to promote Dancehall music and culture in Ghana.
