One of Ghana’s controversial young artiste publicist Prince Jaidy Derby have added his voice on #BeyonceShatta collaboration which seems to be the most talked about topic in the world of entertainment in Africa. In a Facebook & Twitter post he said
In as much it took the whole world by surprise upon hearing about Beyoncé featuring Shatta Wale on her album ‘The Lion King -The Gift’ which has the likes of Wizkid , JAY-Z, Kendrick, Blue Ivy, Burna Boy , Childish Gambino & many more. Couple of interviews I watched Beyoncé referred to the new record as a “love letter to Africa… So getting all those top African artistes was a MUST and will go a long way to project our music to the world in a positive way and I pray it attract investors..
Anyways let me go straight to the reason why am here! In my own opinion I think Shatta Wale was far ‘better’ than Beyoncé on her own song and here are my reasons
Instrumentation : Looking at the beat which happens to be a typical Shatta Wale kind of beat and this made him dominate 80% of it by making sure he deliver and Yes he was able to ..
Lyrics & Style : Maybe it me or my ears , I have a feel that the song was originally written by Shatta Wale (Ask me why) with the style of our dancehall king he was at ease and it makes no difference from his usual style.
These are my observation so far after listening to the song for 19 minutes 38 seconds.. but let me be too quick to add that , His management should mount pressure for an official video since it will rather sell his image more ..
In all it a normal song and personally there isn’t any wow factor about it, just that the Beyoncé brand effect is doing the magic
Prince worked with Castro as his publicist for years before his disappearance and also played a vital role as the CEO of Westside Legacy be he resigned few months back.
