Dancehall musician, Charles Nii Armah Mensah popularly known as Shatta Wale says he has sacked his militants, made up of Addi Self, Captan, Joint 77, and Natty Lee.
According to him, he decided to part ways with the militants because of their lazy attitude and pomposity, despite not being able to write simple lyrics.
Shatta and the budding musicians, released a couple of hit tracks including Thunder Fire, Taking Over, and Chacha.
But in a Facebook live video, Shatta Wale disclosed that he kicked the militants out of his camp in January but was compelled to make the information public now, due to the ‘useless’ songs they release daily.
“They are not serious with their work and I know God wanted them to leave for me to progress more. I sacked them in January because they are not serious.”
“I write their songs line by line and the annoying thing is that they are not remorseful after they wrong me.”
“If you work in a bank and you are given time to report at eight, you cannot just come at your own time and that was how the militants were behaving. I ask you to go for money at eight and you go at your own time, I won’t take that nonsense,” he said.
“They have released a couple of useless songs including Mandela so I quickly have to come to tell the truth that the songs are not coming from me. They are on their own now.”
Shatta Wale also described the militants as disrespectful saying one of them urged the others to begin to disrespect him.
“Addi Self who can’t write, gangs up telling them that I am not doing anything for them. You militants, all the songs you guys wrote none. I wrote all your songs yet people think I am sabotaging you,” he said.
“I have given them their pass yet they post nonsense songs as if I wrote it for them and I don’t want that. They are not good musicians. I only wanted them to do songs so people will support them so they can make money,” he said.
