Shatta Wale’s father: My Son Is Just Like Me.
According to Mr. Charles Mensah, the father of controversial Dancehall artiste, Shatta wale, his son is just like himself when it comes to attitude. They both dislike “cheating.”
Mr. Charles was interviewed on Hitz FM’s ‘E-punch’ show about the court case between his son and Mr. Iyiola Ayoade, the CEO of Charter House and GhOne TV.
Mr. Iyiola Ayoade has sued the 2014 Artiste of the Year, GH¢10 million for defamation, a case that is yet to be resolved in court.
But Mr. Charles has defended his son by saying that he (Shatta Wale) was only fighting for what belongs to him as he dislikes dishonesty and cheating.
“My son is like me because I personally dislike cheating,” he told Mark Okraku Mantey, the host of the show.
“I’m not disturbed by my son fighting for his rights and as a father all I need to do is advise him about how to go about it,” Mr. Charles added.
Events management company, Charter House and Mr. Iyiola Ayoade had dragged Shatta Wale to court for what they said are defamatory statements he made about them on Facebook.
Shatta Wale recorded and posted a series of videos on Facebook on September 23 and September 24.
He accused GhOne TV, a television station of being corrupt and refusing to play his videos on their TV channel. He also warned Mr. Iyiola Ayoade to ‘stop fooling’ show him some respect.
The plaintiffs have rejected Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) filed by Shatta and his management team. The motion would have enabled the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) to amicably solve the matter instead of battling the case in court.
