Sarkodie took to his Facebook page earlier today to wish Shatta Wale a happy birthday as he clocks 37-years on Saturday, October 17.


His message has excited fans from the two biggest fanbases, Shatta Movement and Sark Nation as they dissect the huge significance of his message at a time when many still think there’s an iota of animosity between them.

Essentially, Shatta Wale embraced the cool message from his colleague and offered a corresponding effervescent response that did well to swing the tempo of the warm reactions from their respective fans.

In other news, Kumi Guitar has for the umpteenth time bemoaned the difficulty he’s facing as a musician in penetrating into the mainstream and making a name and wealth for himself in the process.

He emphasized the music structure in Ghana is so bad that aside from the fact only a few artistes like Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and Sarkodie are ‘enjoying’, no remuneration from GHAMRO and other regulatory bodies come to them.

“I have been in the industry for a while and I know what I am talking about. Unless you have monster hits, no event organizer wants to use you. At Christmas, you will see the same artistes playing at all the events.

“What about the other artistes like myself who are good but do not have monsters hits, how do we survive?” he said in an interview with Graphic Showbiz. The Zylofon signed act said unless an artiste had an investor or a strong management team behind him or her, it was difficult to make it in Ghana.

“The likes of Sarkodie, Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy have serious investors pushing them. Music is so difficult in Ghana if you do not have any backing. You literally have to reinvest the little money you get from a hit song you have. If not for the love I had for the job and the fans, I would have probably quit music by now,” he stated.
